45s Of Fury

So tomorrow – this Friday night – me and my man Rich Medina are going to lay waste to Philly. I mean straight come through like Godzilla and Mothra and just wreck shop, straight up and down. We’ve been talking about this since forever and now we’re fully focused, together, and motivated. Really psyched about this cause this type of shit is really my favorite. So. Much. Fun. That. I. Cannot. Express. It. Enough. So anyone who knows the history knows that me and Rich been partners in this Remedy 215 thing of ours since the mid 90s. Plus we’re doing it at Fluid which is where it all started for us. So it’s kind of a no brainer. Expect nothing but heat all night, from all angles.

Now not for nothing, with all humility I will say that we’re both pretty fucking good when it comes to slanging these little records. So to get you all in the mood here’s a few clips of some of the guys that I think are the absolute best in the business when it comes to playing 45s. They are the one and only 45 King and DJ Rockin’ Rob. You all know 45 King obviously (if you don’t then what the hell are you even doing here on my site?) Rob isn’t as well known outside the NY area but for my money he’s one of the best DJs around, something that I got into a conversation with Chairman Mao a few weeks back about. I have to roll up to the parks one of these days and  check homie when he’s rocking. Anyway, enjoy the clips and hope to see you all out tomorrow night!

Cosmo Baker Interview With When Giants Meet

I met my homeboy Randy Ortiz last summer while he was taking photos at the “Hot It Up” show at Littlefield in Brooklyn. Recently he asked me to do an interview for his site about the state of DJing, mixtapes, and my inspirations. Being the self-admitted ham that I am, of course I was happy to oblige… Thanks to him and the good folks at When Giants Meet who picked my brain and put it out there for the world to see. Check out the full interview here at whengiantsmeet.com as well as all sorts of other cool content they have up there. Appreciate it, my dudes!

Cosmo Baker Live On Beatminerz Radio

… Well, “live” after the fact actually. But this past Tuesday I was asked to do a set for the Homebase Radio show on Beatminerz Radio. 2 hours of nothing but hip-hop and breaks. Actually the first hour is like pretty much all exclusives and remixes that I did just for the show. Thanks to Alice, DJ Evil Dee, Mr. Walt, DJ Esquire, DJ Wayne Ski and everyone that tuned in. It was lots of fun, so hope you enjoy it. Salute!
