"The Wizard" Brian Coxx
Brian Coxx is co-creator and resident DJ of the four-year strong weekly Wednesday night party, Soulgasm NYC, has taken New York City by storm. Music enthusiasts, party people and dancers from as far as Japan, Switzerland and Spain come to hear The Wizard who still believes in the art of DJing. Growing up on B-boy and dance culture recording the late night mix shows from DJs such as Red Alert, Chuck Chillout and Tony Humphries, Coxx has always been immersed in music, fusing rock, funk, soul and house to motivate party people from all walks of life. Coxx's diverse musical background is what sets him apart from the new jack DJs that have flooded the New York market of late.
Starting out as a dancer at clubs like Sound Factory Bar and Vinyl, Coxx was intrigued by the sounds and the way the energy of a dope mix could move the crowd. It was just a matter of time before he started spinning records from his own extensive collection at various New York City clubs.
Currently his mix leans towards the deep underground house sound, but his many different influences show up throughout, keeping it authentic to his roots. Coxx has been known to drop the needle on anything from the psychedelic rock of Jimi Hendrix to the dubbed out sounds of Lee Perry, always working people's minds as well as their bodies. Each week a loyal and talented following comes to hear Brian and his style of mixing, reminiscent of the days of clubs like Paradise Garage when the DJ would throw all types of music into their sets. Never afraid of changing tempos, Brian keeps it all relative. Some say that Coxx is the essence of what represents house now.
Brian Coxx's diverse and heart pounding sets have led him to play alongside legends such as, Louie Vega, Jellybean Benitez, Red Alert and Timmy Regisford for Club Shelter's 15 yr. Anniversary. It's no wonder that making music would be the next step in this young and talented DJ-Producer's career. In 2009 Coxx teamed up with production partner Alias Rhythm for his first release, the Strictly Rhythm released Soulgasm Sessions Vol. 1. Since then, he's compiled a list of releases and remixes on world-renowned labels such as Vega Records and Sole Channel.
Wednesday night at Sin Sin is where you can see and hear DJ Brian Coxx stay true to his roots and keep the party people movin', groovin' and anticipating what will be played next. Remember how it used to be? IT STILL IS.
