Born in Canada, and growing up in such varied places as Tanzania (East Africa) and Vanuatu (The South Pacific), Cozmic Cat aka Paula Burrows absorbed International rhythms from a traveling family and became obsessed with music at an early age.
She later moved to Philadelphia, USA and became immersed in the vibrant music scene there for over 9 years. Inspired by the artists and DJs she met in Philly and NYC, she began managing street teams and promoting for Sony Music, Giant Step Records, Om records and many more, all the while throwing her own events with DJs, percussionists and live musicians. Coz learned about House music, Jazz, Disco, Soul, Rare Groove and Funk from some of Philly’s deepest crate diggers. This knowledge, passion and skill led to several award wins from various Philadelphia Press for Best DJ, Best DJ (Mixer), and Best DJ (Audience Choice and Editors Choice).
Armed with a vintage Korg Triton Synth and a desire to release vinyl, she connected with two local Philly producers Lorne Peart and Jon Gil to release a series of vinyl e.p’s under the name From Philly With Love which earned them a spot on Urb Magazine’s Next 100.
