Cosmo Baker embodies the very soul of the modern day DJ: Tastemaker, Visionary, Renowned Party Rocker, and Auteur. A native and current resident of Philadelphia, a city renowned for its DJ culture, Cosmo started rocking parties with the likes of King Britt, Jazzy Jeff and Rich Medina before he was old enough to be in the club. With a take-no-prisoners spirit, Cosmo stormed up the East Coast to Brooklyn where he landed a job at the famed 8 Ball Records and began rocking parties with legends Frankie Knuckles, Little Louie Vega, David Morales and Armand Van Helden. He became a fixture on the downtown scene with Mark Ronson and Stretch Armstrong. In 2003, he joined DJ Ayres and DJ Eleven as the third member of the collective known as The Rub: a classics and hip-hop party, DJ and remix crew that helped to usher in the “open format” DJ style made famous by longtime friend DJ AM and Diplo’s Hollertronix collective.
Today, Cosmo’s DJ sets run the gamut of musical genres, drawing inspiration from everything from Parliament-Funkadelic to EPMD to Neil Young, from obscure disco and soul to the latest Electronic dance music songs. He is a staple at The Do Over. Now in it’s 10th- year, this internationally popular party supported by Adidas and Serato is where world- class DJs from J-Rocc to Questlove go to flex their chops on the decks. Cosmo has made appearances in LA, SF, Honolulu, Mexico, all over Europe, World Cup events in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, and as far as New Zealand and the Middle East.
Cosmo has rocked the Applesap Music Festival in Amsterdam, Shambala Festival in British Columbia, countless Winter Music Week, Art Basel and Coachella events.
Cosmo’s versatility and depth of music knowledge landed him a role in Red Bull Thre3Style (the world’s biggest DJ competition) as both a judge and a headlining act all over the United States, Canada, Germany and Azerbaijan with Z-Trip, Jazzy Jeff, A-Trak and Scratch Bastid.
Cosmo remains a favorite DJ at elite brand activations with recent appearances at the Vice Media New Fronts, Jaguar Super Bowl Party, Burton Snowboard Open, Red Bull Base Camp, Hennessey x Shepard Fairey Release Party, Urban Outfitters x Champion Collaboration Launch and The Heineken Green Room Series.
Cosmo brings an energy behind the decks that is unmatched, and it is felt and reciprocated by his audiences. He’s a true showman, and whether it’s raw hip-hop, reggae, house & electronic, disco, funk, soul or rock music that he’s playing, he makes you love it, and makes you feel it like you didn’t even think you could.
