Cousin Cole's tracks are played regularly by some of the top DJs in the world: Diplo, Optimo, Sinden, Todd Terje, Pilooski, Cosmo Baker, Scottie B, A-Trak, Steve Aoki, and DJ AM. His indie/folk mix CD "Tambourine Dream" featured songs from the likes of Joanna Newsome, Bruce Springsteen, Devendra Banhart, and Neil Young -- all exclusively remixed by Cole or his former partner Pocketknife. "Tambourine Dream" made fans from across the musical spectrum, including Spank Rock, Todd Terje, Pilooski, and Prins Thomas. Cousin Cole's "Soulja Boy" remix has gotten primetime airplay by Hot 97 in NYC and Power 106 in LA and was played before Toronto Raptors basketball games. Cousin Cole has DJed all across the US and Europe, and has played with the likes of The Rub, Low Budget, Tim Sweeney, Prince Language, Jacques Renault, Tomboy, Shir Khan, Eli Escobar, DJ Benzi, Nadastrom, King Tutt, DJ Tameil, and many more. After five records and one CD on Flagrant Fowl, Cousin Cole is now starting a new label, Cousins, with releases planned from Youth, Tom of Finland, and Cousin Cole himself. Cole is currently working on the follow up to Tambourine Dream, doing tons of remixes, and DJing around the world -- he just finished his fourth European tour and a second Australian tour is in the works for early 2011. "I like ["Tamborine Dream"] because i can play it around other people, without boring them, making them want to cry, or ruining my reputation as the most gangster of gangster rappers. And what makes these edits truly outstanding is that it doesn't chop up the vocals or drop Lavender diamond in the middle of a rave, but just gives each song an extra push to have a nice uplifting easy listening mix to two step to, or pre-game with." - Spank Rock "[Tougher Than Featherz] is great! Absolutely love the jamc / suicide / ram jam and arthur russell reworks. I think I'll be playing them all tonight." - Twitch (Optimo) "THAT SHIT IS OUT OF HAND!" - Scottie B (Unruly Records) on Bam a Lam "The Springsteen edit has 'Future Balearic Classic' written all over it" -Piccadilly Records "Probably the mix of the year" -Turntable Lab on Tambourine Dream
