I was lucky enough to have been able to roll through Portland with my Do Over family early in July for the second installment of the season up there. It was truly an unforgettable time, the time of my life. Not only was the vibe and the energy just insane, but I was celebrating my birthday while I was rocking. I’m grateful for having been able to be there with so many good friends, and extra special shouts to my dear friend Connie for hooking up so many special dimensions for the trip, as well as my cousin Katie for just being one of the best people on the planet. Check some of the local press here for a PDX perspective recap. And, as always, all the sets are recorded for your enjoyment, so shoot over to The Do Over Blog and check the recap, or click here for Cosmo Baker “Live At The Do Over Portland, July 10th 2011”
The Rub was commissioned to do a mix for the Canadian based women’s clothing retail chain Aritzia, to be used in all of their stores across North America. For my installment, it gave me an opportunity to play some music that I normally wouldn’t throw in some of my live sets, and to try and paint a picture of this “casual love affair.” Basically, I wanted to take a very sexy direction for the sound of this mix but it also hits on all sorts influences from French music, African, some Brit pop, disco boogie, Moohmbahton and other grooves. I start out pretty mid-tempo but with just amount of groove to it so that it’s dance worthy. Then towards the middle and end the pace and energy picks up. And then at the very end I break it down with a very smooth finish. I hope you enjoy it.
