The creative mind plays with the objects it loves. London’s underground electronic scene therefore has been littered with the ideas, designs and impulses of Cozzy D for over a decade now. His tireless work as producer, DJ, promoter and label owner has embedded his influence throughout every annex of the scene, thus yielding a far-reaching impact on dance music culture as a whole. Not only establishing himself as an essential artist through prolific productions and immersive DJ sets, Cozzy has also managed to help inspire a new generation of dance music enthusiasts through his record label and successful parties; revealing him as an instrumental part of London reclaiming its strong identity within the scene once again. As label co-owner, Cozzy presided over Lower East as it became one of the capital’s most celebrated underground labels throughout 2011. The imprint played a huge role in the revival of London-centric house and techno by unleashing a plethora of the city’s most promising emerging talents to the world. Artists like Alexis Raphael, WildKats, Rebel, Michael Jansons & Johnny Mikes joined Lee Brinx, and Cozzy himself on the label to raise the bar for all London based producers. Mixing home-grown talent with the best from abroad, Lower East have broadened their horizons further with the addition of international stars such as MK, Timo Maas, Lee Foss, Kris Wadsworth, James Teej, Droog, Richy Ahmed and Puente & Rosch whose anthemic ‘This Feeling’ became an instant DC-10 hit. Cozzy also co-runs and is resident for acclaimed Sunday party Crèche with Alexis Raphael. Already recognised as one of London’s biggest parties, Crèche takes its diverse sound and unbeatable atmosphere to a unique collection of both intimate and large-scale spaces. Past guests have included Jamie Jones, Dixon, Maceo Plex, Kerri Chandler, Maya Jane Coles, Julio Bashmore, Eats Everything, Dusky, The Martinez Brothers and Dyed Soundorom.
