After visiting parties at The Loft in 1991, Cosmo invited David Mancuso to play on her NYU radio show. Next, as the legendary DJ became a friend and musical mentor to Cosmo, she began spinning at The Loft alongside people such as François K, Lil Louis, Danny Krivit and managed the original Dancetracks record store with Joe Claussell by day. As if this wasn’t enough, with friend Nikki Lucas she established the label Bitches Brew in London, founded a publishing company and released her own Ch’I productions as well as a host of other music as we found out at the 2003 Red Bull Music Academy.

The Red Bull Music Academy is a global music institution committed to fostering creativity in music. We celebrate music, its culture, and the transformative minds behind it. Begun in 1998, the Academy has taken the core principles that underlie its annual workshop for selected participants and applied this curatorial approach to events, lectures, and city-wide festivals throughout the year.
