Continuing on with the Skratch Bastid Presents series, I’ve got another collaborative live show to announce. Friday, July 9th at The Drake Hotel Underground will feature my good friend Cosmo Baker and I on 4 turntables.
Originally from Philly and now based in New York, Cosmo is a well rounded DJ and connoisseur of the finer things in life. 1/3 of the infamous NYC crew The Rub (with DJ Ayres and DJ Eleven). Mainstay at The Do-Over party in LA. Co-founder of Sabbath in the Park (he went to court for that shit). You can read all about him at his website, and while you’re over there you should check out his great blog where he talks about music, art, gigs and ‘stuff’. Some nice nuggets to download, too. For the record heads, here’s a nice interview with Cosmo at Dust and Grooves.
We’ll be rehearsing and hitting you in the head with 4 deck madness. We will play a bit of everything. You will have fun. You will hear new music. You will hear songs you haven’t heard in a while. You will see tricks done with turntables that your brother’s-friend-that-DJs-on-Wednesday-at-the-pub cannot perform. You will tell everyone how much fun you had at The Drake Underground on Friday, July 9th, 2010 and you will be a better person. Do it.
Here’s a mix he did recently for The Rub’s History of Hip-Hop series:
