Cosmic Kids

October 15, 2011

Cosmic Kids Ron Poznansky and Dan Terndrup didn’t meet in outer space as their DJ moniker may indicate, but the story is still equally as good. The two met in a high school classroom meant for kids who had trouble paying attention. They bonded over their love of classic rock. Right out of high school they both volunteered to work at the Los Angeles radio station KCRW. Known for its eclectic programming, the friends were exposed to all different kinds of music, and began collecting and consuming records, feeding their ever-expanding appetite for music.

Frequenting warehouse after parties where band members would DJ, they were inspired by the idea of sharing good music and seeing people really responding to a certain song or beat. As they grew their record collection, Poznansky and Terndrup felt they had something to contribute, and DJ’d their first party in 2006 with Rapture and DJ AM. Since that inaugural gig, they’ve DJ’d alongside LCD Soundsystem, Holy Ghost!, Juan Maclean, Dâm Funk, Crystal Castles, Digitalism, The Rapture, Harvey, Little Boots, Classixx, and Steve Aoki.”

I haven’t heard much from these guys besides a few remixes and their Reginald’s Groove EP, but I interviewed Poolside on WVUM a few days ago and Jeff mentioned they’re movin’ and shakin’ out in LA. Hopefully they’ll come out with something new soon before the Nu Disco trend blows over.

    This is very hip and so chill. Love the repetitive echo in the back.
