Live Review: DJ Cobra’s First Shows in Atlanta at Wild Bills and Gold Room, August 18 and 19

By Garrett Webster.

After attending one of DJ Cobra’s parties, you quickly understand why he’s hired to spin at Hollywood’s most exclusive events. Playing close to 300 gigs annually, his client list includes Madonna, Tyra Banks, Sarah Jessica Parker and brands such as Victoria’s Secret, Warner Bros. and Paramount Pictures. This past weekend he found some time in his schedule to rock Atlanta for two shows courtesy of who celebrated their three-year anniversary.

Wild Bills was the scene of the first performance where he dazzled the crowd with everything from electro club anthems to hip-hop bangers. Hit after hit brought more energy and electricity to the crowd. Party patrons young and old enjoyed his signature style, which includes unique cuts and blends, as they danced non-stop for the better part of the night. Moving seamlessly through the records, Cobra put on a full exhibition of his talents and treated the audience to an amazing time.

The next night was more of the same. Gold Room was almost a zoo. The club seemed to erupt throughout the night as he played mashups with great technique and once again brought the house down. Impressed with his ability to read the crowd, the night ended with an ovation from fans, bartenders and the wait staff.

What he’s able to do on the fly comes from being a veteran and having a deep library, which he started collecting in junior high school. I got a chance to link up with DJ Cobra after the event and he took the time to go through some samples on his custom Mac laptop that has his moniker embossed on it. Cancun, he revealed, was one of his favorite places to DJ, with the thousands of people that party there throughout the year. As we viewed the footage on his website, I could tell that his spring break event with Lil’ Jon was quite an experience.

You can find more videos on His newest project, Illionaire, is also available for download there and will give you a taste of some of the flavor he brings to his sets. Be sure to also check out the schedule to see when DJ Cobra will be rocking a venue near you.
