The Freedom Party Details

The Freedom Partyw/ DJ Herbert HollerDJ CosiDJ Marc SmoothDJ Herbert HollerI’m the illest promoter/DJ in NYC. I have been commanding the club scene since 2000, murdering dance floors at every NYC venue you can think of. I’m also known for “The Herbert Holler,” a free email list of all the hottest music events in town, songs I’m feeling, and a short editorial about life in NYC. Every Friday I’m at the legendary “FREEDOM” party, www.thefreedompartynyc.com, an event I started 6.5 years ago because music sucked, parties were boring, and people stopped dancing. We play strictly classic dance hits from the ’60s through today. I can spin anything and everything. Though hip-hop, r&b, old school and classics are my claim-to-fame, right now I’m really into deep soulful house, tech house and global soul, winning over house heads and converting new listeners alike. What sets me apart from other DJs is my connection to the crowd. I play for people, not with myself. I mean for myself. I don’t play with myself. Seriously. I don’t. I used to, when I was little, but, you know, that’s what little kids do. They play with themselves! What? I don’t do it anymore!! I DON’T!! Yeah, in the bathroom. Every guy does that in the bathroom. It’s the bathroom! It’s not in public. What? Whatever a**hole. SHUT UP AND DANCE!DJ CosiCosi gets down not just for the funk of it, but for the love of it. He spins music like no other DJ on the planet and that is why New York is proud to claim him as one of its own. He spins because nothing else is quite as satisfying. I play a mix of 70 & 80s R&B classics, funk, 80s pop, hip-hop, reggae, afro-beat and house music, Cosi explains. I have a knack for knowing what people want to hear from just reading the crowd. When I play it, they dance. Thats the best feeling. The feeling continues, even into his 15th year of spinning, as one of the few DJs who has truly mastered his art. He seamlessly blends several, if not all, of these genres throughout the evening, flawlessly moving the minds and bodies of those in the audience, making him one of the most sought-after DJs in New York City. If youve been to one of the myriad parties where Cosi has played, youd know this experience first hand. Quite simply, his talent touches your soul. Tastemakers at Nike, The Gap, Brooks Brothers, MOMA, Hugo Boss, Timberland, Vibe Magazine, Phat Farm, The Chris Rock Show, Pepsi, The Magic Johnson Foundation, Enyce, Yves Saint Laurent, The National Basketball Players Association, The Fader Magazine, the Hudson Hotel, the W Hotel and many others have experienced this first-hand. He has held weeklys at nightclubs such as Nells, Cheetah, Justins, APT, Lotus, NV, Float, Metronome, Discotheque, Joes Pub, Martinez Gallery, Mission, BLVD, and Caf Deville (just to mention a few). All have hired Cosi to set the mood and create the energy for the night. He has created the perfect vibe for parties in a number of cities throughout the U.S. (from New York to Las Vegas to Puerto Rico) and internationally (Mexico, Bahamas, Anguilla to name a few). Cosi has even spun for former President Bill Clinton in the Hamptons! Heres your chance to dance your way out of your constrictions.
