Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy: Balearic Breakfast

Sunday, 23/06/24
DJ in the Dunes

We are thrilled to welcome Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy to our Dawn programme.

Community is still central to everything world renowned DJ Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy does today, Balearic Breakfast being the prime example. The show began on Worldwide FM during the first lockdown of 2020 when she filled in for Gilles Peterson on one of his morning slots.


A true music obsessive, Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy’s standing in the global dance music community has arguably never been higher. Whether she’s presenting, remixing, hosting or DJing, her belief in music’s redemptive properties shines through. And rather than downplay her eclecticism she wears her versatility as a badge of honour, ensuring she is constantly fulfilled creatively.


“I’m a music lover, a music curator and a music educator,” she concludes. “It’s about trying to transcend everyday life through music. When people say Balearic Breakfast got them through the pandemic, I think that’s because music has a healing quality. When people are on the dancefloor, I want them to forget about their everyday life.”
