Dirty But Sophisticated IV
Czar Vodka Bar In Ybor City, Tampa, 33604


In setting the 2008 event apart from the previous incarnations of DBS, the event producers decided to step up our game and bring in national talent. With our finger planted firmly on the pulse of underground art, fashion and music in the mecca for all three, New York City, we decided bringing in one of the city's hottest DJs and promoters was the obvious choice. Dirty But Sophisticated IV will feature NYC's Oxy Cottontail with guest DJ Si Young of Plastic Little. Oxy will host our event, and throw down after the fashion show for a big city set like Tampa's never seen.Supporting DJ talent includes DIRT DJS Maynard and Ryan (Sarasota), Mike Blenda, Mega and the Crate Bros.

About Oxy Cottontail:"Roxy Cottontail is the woman that every girl rocking Nikes and huge earrings longs to be. Roxy, who also goes by Oxy (get it?), is a streetwear fashionista, full-time hustler, and arguably one of New York's best-known promoters. She got into the business by spreading the B'more club sound and making stars out of acts such as Spank Rock and Hollertronix. She also DJs and recently got into producing music for herself. Roxy raps over beats that are a little punk, a little funk, sample-heavy, and undeniably dance-party worthy. Imagine a mix of Peaches, the Rapture, and Gravy Train and you're almost ready for Roxy's set." - flavorpill.net

Over the past three years, Oxy Cottontail has distinguished herself as a restless and relentless promoter, DJ and rapper in NYC nightlife. Fresh out of Philadelphia by way of Baltimore, she helped establish her close friends and favorite party, Hollertronix (Diplo & Low Budget) as two of the most in-demand DJs in New York City, and now worldwide. Oxy's parties have filled large downtown venues such as The Tribeca Grand Hotel, Luke & Leroy, Sway, Stereo, Knitting Factory, Joes Pub, BLVD and the Bowery Bar; her smash events have featured performances by well-known artists and underground legends such as Spankrock, Ghostface Killah, Slick Rick, Devin the Dude, Andre Nickatina, DJ A-Trak, Stretch Armstrong and countless others. In addition to her weekly Monday party at Sway in West Soho, Roxy recently started Bell Hop, a brand new 1990s hip hop party every Wednesday at Room Service on 21st and Park. Though Roxy retired as nightly late night event coordinator and booker for Joe's Pub she has not stopped booking or making live music. Her parties range in style from hip hop, reggae, electro, rock, as well as karaoke to various artist showcases. Oxy Cottontail events are regularly featured in magazines such as i-D, The New Yorker, The Village Voice, BPM Magazine, New York Press, and more. Future collaborations with Justine D of Motherfucker fame, Good Peoples & Missbehave are keeping eyes wide open for 2008.

In Closing, This is an Event in Tampa that I am very proud and excited to attend. The Hiphop scene in Tampa is very very Loyal. It is however small, buy very loyal. We have alot of extreme Talent that needs to be heard. The Following is lacking. I know for a fact there are so many more people out there that would love what they see and hear if only they would just actually make it to the events. The Deep House Scene in Tampa is huge.. The DJ's are Above PAr, and the Fans actually come out every event and pack whatever Venue or house part is being rocked. My hopes are that 2008 will be the year that the hiphop events become as packed. We have the greatest promoters on the globe (Tastemakers, aestheticized presents and so many more that are making Tampa A Non stop cultural party) If you are reading this and in the Tampabay Area, Please come out for the evening, 2 step, Sway, lean with it, rock wit it, do the kid N Play kick flip or river dance. but this evening will be one to remember. I want to give a special shout to all of the hard working promoters, the venues that let us get lifted in the back rooms (haha) and all of the artists that display they're craft and most of all the people who come out to the events....
Tampa, FL we love you!
