Thomas Godel alias Cosmo started his career in the early 80s, when he became a popular resident DJ in famous Clubs of Southern Germany. In 1992 he started producing his own music. His first record "Graceland - My Best is Rock n’ Roll" was released in eight European countries and made it in Spain to the ultimate summer hit. That was just the beginning and Cosmo released one hit after another at different record labels (Sony Music, Sodom Music, Blue Flame, Deep Blue, Time Unlimited, Unsubmissive, Humanoid, Proton, Reef etc.). Some of the well known records of this time were "Cosmo - Nation of House, Hymn, Elements", "Frank Künne - L.O.V.E, Say yes say no" "CK - Boing".
In October 1998 he started his collaboration with Unsubmissive Records, and the European wide successful project "Mythos 'n DJ Cosmo" was born. The first single "The Heart of the Ocean" with the main melody of the blockbuster "Titanic" entered the European charts. It peaked number two in France and made it into the Top 20 in Germany. Golden records in France, Belgium and Denmark continue to reflect the success of this record.
