DJ, radio show host, producer and in-demand resident DJ, CJ Cooper has been DJing across the UK and Ibiza for nearly 20 years.
He’s best known for his long-standing nine-year residency at The Eagle in London, the legendary LGBT+ venue. And let’s face it, you know you’re doing something very very right when the other residents include Horse Meat Disco.
Residencies have played a big part in CJ Cooper’s success to date. Alongside his regular slots at The Eagle, he’s also a resident DJ for the Brighter Days crew, playing at their sold-out parties for five years across Cambridge, Ibiza and London.
Musically, CJ Cooper spans the best of disco, house and soulful house – from upfront edits and releases to crate-digging for long-lost classics. And they’re all present and correct on his weekly prime-time Friday night slot on Mi House Radio where he’s built an international fanbase over the past three years thanks to his seamless mixing and choice selections.
Away from his weekly and monthly gigs, CJ Cooper is increasingly in demand across the rest of the UK.
He’s a firm favourite at the long-running Brixton Disco Festival having been booked for the last two years while he’s also recently played for We Out Here Festival and Cambridge Pride.
Equally at home playing main-stage festival slots as well as intimate club gigs, other high-profile gigs including playing for Hed Kandi, the House and Classics Festival, plus several Ibiza gigs at Es Paradis, Ibiza Rocks Hotel and the Wiki Woo sunset bar.
And memorably, it was while playing at Up on the Roof at the Prince of Wales in Brixton that The Shapeshifters called his warm-up ‘one of the best they’d ever heard.’
Not just a DJ and radio show host, CJ Cooper is a producer with a growing reputation having released four tracks on OPOM, Plastik People, Friday Fox Recordings and Electric Friends.
With the world opening up once more and with disco at the forefront of the party, expect to hear a lot more from CJ Cooper in the near future.
