Mixtape Friday: Episode 071 – Mixed by Joe Cozzo

TommY Boy presents Mixtape Friday: Episode 071 - Mixed by Joe CozzoWhat is the significance of your name and how did you get it? 

Besides being born on St. Joseph’s Day, I was also named after my Grandfather.

Describe your style? 

I am pretty diverse, producing House, Deep House, Tech House & Techno. I love drums so in most my tracks & sets you can expect to hear a lot of funky drums & hard hitting bass lines. I guess i would classify it as an upbeat progressive tech house.

What was the first record you start scratching and mixing on the turntables? 

I believe 1 of the 1st tracks I ever tried mixing was “It Began In Africa”

Describe the music scene in your neck of the woods? 

EDM, Progressive & Breaks is real big in my area of Florida but Im originally from NY where I grew up to the sounds of artists like Jonathon Peters, Junior Vasquez & Danny Teneglia which is more of the classic house & underground vibe.

Who and what are your influences? 

My biggest influence is my wife & kids. They give me the drive & determination to keep pushing forward.

What artists are you listening to right now? Who would you like to work with in the future? 

Lately Ive been listening to DJ Boris, Richie Santana, DJ PP, Coyu, Agent Orange among a few more artists from the Toolroom roster. In the future I would love to collab with or do remixes for Richie Santana & Agent Orange. Im loving the productions they have been releasing lately. Great Work from both of them.

Do you prefer radio or live DJing

I just love playing music. Whether I’m recording a set for a podcast or radio show or I’m in the club playing for 50 or 500ppl, I’m happy. But playing for a crowd does allow you to feed off their energy.

Is there anything you would like our readers to know?

I just finished a big project called “Road To Recovery” with Inaya Day with remixes from Alexander Technique, ALUKAA, Tony Puccio & The Young Bad Twinz. The Official music video was filmed & directed by Kirk Gillon from the upcoming HBO documentary “Breaking Bread.” We spent a good 6 months on this project & although the song was written for my son, anyone going thru any sort of recovery will relate to it. Keep a look out for this project in the near future & just keep supporting the music…..
