Cosmos People released their first album in September 2009. The album reached the Top 1 on the “Chia Chia Record Billboard (Taiwan)” in first week. The album also reached Top 4 on the “G-Music Billboard (Taiwan)”, and Top 5 on the “5- Music (Taiwan)”. Cosmos People said that, they aim to change Chinese music with their fusion Funk/Disco sound they introduced on their debut album Cosmos People 001, which contained three hit singles: “Space Cop”, “Flowers”, and “Go Kaoxiong”.
Their second studio album “Earth Walk” was released in October 2012, with the singles “Run Together”, “I Wanna Make You a Movie”, “I Don’t Like You”, which was their first Album to reach number one on the “Books Record Billboard (Taiwan)”.

Their music contains Funk, Disco and Acid Jazz. They also added Human Beat-Box element to their music. They love the 70’s and 80’s funk music the most. And their favorite bands and singers are “Earth Wind and Fire”, “Jamiroquai”, “Average White Band”, “Stevie Wonder”, “Kool and the Gang”...

2004年的暑假,正值雅典奧運會期間,主唱小玉和一位熱愛街舞的好友前往日本參加一場街舞盛會,飯店裡的電視播放著奧運男子跨欄項目的決賽,有一位選手深深地吸引了他們。這位選手叫做Feliz Sanchez,多明尼加籍的選手,他在賽前熱身時點亮了手上炫麗的LED發光手環,並跳起自創舞步,完全沉浸在自己的宇宙裡,厲害的是,最後他還拿下了該項目的金牌榮耀。這個令人讚嘆的表現,讓他們蹦出了一個絕妙形容詞:「這個人好宇宙!」,並且開始模仿起了這位選手的奇特舞步。
幾個月後,主唱小玉和高中好友吉他手阿奎組了一個以舞蹈曲風為主的樂團,開始創作歌曲,並積極參加各式各樣的表演,因為報名演出需要團名,他們說:「那就叫宇宙人好了」,從此,宇宙人誕生。

宇宙人喜歡彈奏Funk, Disco, Jazz...等音樂,並且不斷嘗試融入不同的音樂元素。因為喜歡舞蹈,宇宙人創作的每一首歌曲都像是進入一個節奏的黑洞,讓人不知不覺地順著音樂的擺動身體。
總而言之,
堅持宇宙式的幽默,宇宙人要痞痞地記錄大時代裡小人物的心情點滴,拒絕向大人們的社會妥協。看似偏執實則滿腔理想,看似戲謔實則笑中帶淚,宇宙人要用音樂傳達一個世代的歡愉與失落。
