Cozmic Cat

Cozmic Cat is a self made dj who started from the ground up, handing out flyers and throwing small parties in Philly with friends, sharing their love of music, vinyl and the dj scene. After working in a record shop by day and learning about the roots of Jazz, Soul, Funk and House Music from some of Phillys deepest crate diggers, Coz began spinning with a passion that led to several awards and over a decade in experience in everything from warehouse parties to corporate galas.

Years later in Toronto, she started her own record label and production company Jupiter Productions, and continues to dj and promote events, one of which continues to remain successful after 11 years.

While Cozmic Cat is perhaps best known in Toronto for her  monthly Queer Women’s event Cherry Bomb, her music has melted hearts and moved feet in clubs from Amsterdam to South Africa. Cozmic brings the party every time with her signature high energy blend of House, exclusive remixes, current club bangers and her own original tracks. She is releasing several dance singles this year on International record labels. The first one is out Feb 22nd 2019. 

Cozmic is thrilled to take part in this year’s CLGA gala event!
