Can you tell the Mixcloud community a bit about your Mixcloud profile and how it got started?
We’ve been putting out mixes since we started a year and a half ago. As pioneers of up-and-coming music, it’s important for us to share that with our readers. It’s also all about celebrating the diverse talent of selectors & DJs. We realised that this was something we wanted to push more so decided to start a weekly mix series to showcase young DJ talent around the world!
How long have you been doing the podcasts, and what do you hope to achieve with them?
It’s only been a couple of months, but we plan to keep this going. We’re hoping to introduce some people to new music, new sounds, and to a whole new world of talented DJs that don’t necessarily get the recognition that they deserve. COZY MAG is a platform for talent across all genres and disciplines, and so is our Mixcloud profile.
Do you have a few favorites or recommendations from the series? What makes them special?
My favourite (Neela, Editor of COZY MAG) mix has to be our first ever mix. It’s special because it’s where this all began, and it was Nico’s first time doing a mix too. It’s now “007 | Nico Adomako”, and even when we re-released it, it was just as good as when it first dropped! It’s definitely a timeless mix, and watching Nico’s growth from doing his first ever mix for COZY a year ago, to now recently supporting a Skepta show, has been really cool.
What can we expect in the future from you and your forthcoming podcasts?
More good vibes! Just good music, with no limits.
