The Wizard” Brian Coxx rocks the decks Friday night as the dance groove spirits of Soulgasm New York City and Soulgasm Hawaii collide for a family affair in celebration of five years of snazzy moves and rock steady tunes produced the Soulgasm Hawaii way.

Coxx is part of the funk-soul fabric of evolutionary Soulgasm NYC and is often regarded as a second generation torch-bearer–an East Coast pioneer in training, if you will–who specializes in the soulfully rich and sassy old school brand of underground house, blended to perfection.

The Wizard’s dynamic sound is on full display Wednesday nights at his Soulgasm NYC parties.

Yes, Coxx’s audible aesthetics are of the throwback variety. His presence serves as a bridge that connects the Paradise Garage and Sound Factory epic days of old with the expansive, outside-the-box house genre that is so incredibly popular today.

For Coxx, who is still very much a dance-crazed b-boy at heart, any time spent behind the decks is like church. Lucky for you, church service will be held twice this weekend. Time to get blessed.
