Colleen "Cosmo" Murphy is unashamedly one of our favourite DJs, there are very few other people with the clubbing history, devotion to sound quality, and fabulous skills and taste as Cosmo. Since moving from New York to London around 2000 Cosmo has continued to build a reputation as a DJ of some note – with the all encompassing New York mindset of DJing with no limits, playing good music, no matter the style or genre, as long as it works on the floor and not being a slave to the beat. Her 4 hour set at The Garden Festival in Croatia last summer was the highlight of the whole weekend for many.
Cosmo is also part of the promotion team that has established the quarterly London Loft parties with David Mancuso – in her days back in New York she was one of a very few people ever to have the privilege to play regularly at The Loft. In recent times she's been playing the London parties in David's absence, and taking things to another level. She was also one of the few guests to play at the seminal Body & Soul nights alongside Joe Claussell, Francois K, and Danny Krivit. Indeed, she in held in such high regard by Francois K that she is one of the few DJs he trusts to play the entire night at his weekly Deep Space residency in New York.
Not content with promoting, DJing and hosting radio shows that are syndicated across the globe, Cosmo also runs her own record label Bitches Brew and has been producing some superb records under the Wild Rumpus alias. The label has also been an outlet for a 10" series of remixes for her DarkStarr colab with Ashley Beedle. 2011 saw remixes for Planningtorock on DFA under her Cosmodelica guise, and also for Pacific Horizons with Yam Who? which is coming soon.
If that's not all, Cosmo also found time in 2011 to revolutionise the way people listen to music with her Classic Album Sundays events that encouraged people to listen to albums again in their entirety on some fabulous hifi systems. Taking the monthly concept to the Vintage and Bestival festivals in the summer and gaining a whole host of media plaudits from the BBC, to the NME, Guardian, Telegraph, Cosmopolitan, and many more.
There aren't many others that share the true passion that Cosmo feels for the music she loves, and we can't wait for her to bless us with another magical performance.
