More Than Enough – The Elite Camp Holiday Party
More Than Enough is a classic NYC dance party that returns to the essence of what that really means, good music. From classic hip hop, house, and soul that resonates through the crowd to make them all sing, to bangers and remixes that make the party knock. No top 40 nonsense, strictly quality music spun by Djs who are true masters of their trade. Lead by The Elite Camp’s Unkle Chip, Dj SickRoc, and Kev Love, as well as a host of guest Djs from all over the country.
Hosted by Nemalesis and Elroy Jenkins. No dress code, no pretentious doormen. One of the last true dance parties in NYC.

Cosmo Baker is widely considered as one of the top party-rocking DJs on the planet. A master of everything from hip-hop to disco & funk to electronic music, his unique style and spinning prowess is able to bring it all together in a cohesive, and funky manner. This Philadelphia native cut his chops alongside contemporaries such as ?uestlove and Rich Medina, and when he relocated to Brooklyn in the early ’00s he helped found the internationally known DJ / remix collective The Rub. Now as a solo performer Cosmo is bringing his show to larger audiences around the globe. His knowledge of music is only matched with his uncanny ability to move the crowd. Cosmo is a rare breed of DJ that bridges the gap between the legendary DJs of yesterday and the superstar DJs of today.
Kamui (Hot Peas & Butta)
DJ Kamui Sumida has been spinning and collecting records for well over a decade. Kamui has shared the stage and opened for significant artists, including Talib Kweli, DJ Craze and DJ Krush. Originally hailing from Osaka, Japan, Kamui spent much of his musically-formative years in Seattle Washington, where he hooked up the Seattle record label/art crew known as Fourthcity. Collaborating with friends and fellow DJs Bumble Bee, Hideki Yamamoto, AbsoluteMadman, Introcut & Rei, a legendary weekly Tuesday night called Stop Biting was created – a collective party that has continued strong since its 2004 birth, still going down at the LoFi Performance Gallery in Seattle every Tuesday.
Kamui recently moved to Brooklyn, NY and has been avidly building up his prized collection of rare 45s and funk/soul records. Upon his relocation, he quickly linked up with likeminded collectors and DJs in New York and has rocked parties with pioneers Rich Medina and Q Tip at Santo’s Party House. When Sumida is spinning 45s from his treasured collection, his technical skill is obvious as he nimbly mixes and juggles rare gems and priceless records, never failing to engage any crowd. Kamui continues to steadily rock a variety of esteemed NYC parties, recently sharing the spotlight with the originator of the legendary Hot Peas & Butta party, Skeme Richards. Kamui continues to consistently deliver and receive the heart- and-soul of musical vivacity and quench the thirst to get down no matter the time and stage – and always with a distinguishable dynamism no doubt inspired by the universal groove.
