International gig in Holland! -  Coz had the absolute honor to participate in the 

"No Pants, No Problem" event at club DeMarktkantine, Amsterdam, on July 26th . With gigs back home right before and right after, it was unfortunately a short stay but she had a blast at this part performance art, part dance party, part art installation community event that celebrates artistic and creative freedom as well as global sexual rights . It was Cozmic's first time spinning in Amsterdam and a total high! Over 800 people lost their minds on the dancefloor on a Thursday night!  Shout outs to organizer and founder Jessica Lynn Whitbred, DJs Nic Holas (Australia) and Inssie (Holland), all the perfromers, artists and of course the beautiful crowd. Check out the website for a quick clip of the dancefloor in action..

 And finally we leave you with a few things we dig right now: 


Gear: My new Samsung  Gear 360 camera. Its not just for real estate agents :) This cute gadget streams live, records video and photos in 360 and you can mount it on a tripod. Check out my 360 pic from the Aquarium " Night At The Aqueerium" event  we posted on Cozmic Cat's Facebook Page.   

Place: Finger Lakes, NY State; I had the chance to hang out there with my good friend and visit all the breweries, and chill by the lake ( sorry I am not into wine) but the entire area is basically a beer/wine drinkers dream. and at 4hrs from Toronto its not bad for a road trip. Check out Lolly's Cottage on Lake Seneca and enjoy! 

Video: I am not a huge fan of the tune but Video  for The Carters-"Apesh*t" is pretty dope. Now America has  finally seen the inside of the Louvre thanks to Beyonce and Jay-Z!


Music : Brand new music you have never heard: Check out alllll the episodes of The Maggy Thump Show. They do all the work for you of curating the best new music out there. Available on iTunes too.

The latest buzz: 

Pride Month in Toronto  is in full swing and team Cozmic has been busy. First off, in case you missed it, On Friday June 1st  Cozmic Cat took a road trip with some friends to play the coolest underground club in Hamilton, Sous Bas . The club teamed up with Hamilton Pride to throw a pride kick off party and the place was packed. Cozmic dropped a set of original tracks from the #CozmicLove album  mixed with vocal house bangers, pop guilty pleasures + Pride anthems for the dancefloor.  Shout out to Sous Bas for bringing Cozmic in, and to all the old+ new friends and fam who came out to celebrate Hamilton Pride! 

​ The Cat got up super early that same day to appear on CBC Metro Morning alongside host Matt Galloway talking about Pride anthems and what Pride means to her. What a great time in the studios and such an honor to be there! 

  Cozmic also had the honor of providing the late night soundtrack for the annual OperaNation gala / fundraiser at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. So much glam, and fun! 

​ The Annual U of T Pride pub was bonkers Friday June 8th  under the stars in the hart House quad.. Djs Cozmic Cat and TAMIKA kept the party jumpin'' Big Ups! 

​ And finally...celebrating a new residency! The unstoppable Drake Hotel has opened yet another outpost, this time across the way from Drake One Fifty in the financial district. Its been dubbed  The Mini Bar and the gorgeous spot has a dreamy patio spilling out onto the plaza at York and Adelaide so you can't miss it. Cozmic takes over Saturdays 4-8pm to drop some post brunch /pre-party vibes on the patio. We can't wait to see you there! 

 ​The big highlight this year for Pride month is definitely our annual Pride bash at the Mod Club: Cherry Bomb Pride :: LOVE IS ELECTRIC . This epic 2 floor event host over 1000 people in the gorgeous newly renovated Mod club. The world class venue has killer sound and lights, plus cool decor by Calabra and live visuals mixed by Roxy Luchak.  Djs Cozmic Cat and Denise will be joined by Lulu Wei (Brown Rice) and Spin Starlets on the main stage with the awesome Dj Recklezz in the Hiphop/dancehall lounge.  Photography by the ubiquitous Nancy Kim and lots of giveaways and fun all night long.
