For one Night only, One of the most respected DJ's on the planet... The King of Clubs///////////// ♣ CARL COX ♣
♣ CARL COX ♣
\\\\\\ Support from //////
A musical ambassador since he was in short trousers, a professional DJ since his early teens, a veteran of acid house and a champion of techno – you name it, Carl's been there and done it, never losing sight of his passions – playing music, breaking tunes, spreading love and celebrating life.
2012 has another phenomenally busy year for Carl. Having another successful Ibiza season and touring and hosting zones at the major EDM festivals around the world.
He re-launched Intec Digital in 2010, the digital return of his seminal Intec Records, with exclusive releases from some of the biggest names in techno. It’s been a triumphant return, thanks to exclusives from Yousef, Carlo Lio, Jim Rivers, Jon Rundell and Umek: “The label couldn’t be going better,” says Carl. “It’s great to be back at the helm discovering underground DJs.”
It was at the tender age of 15, that Carl was given a set of turntables and began working as a mobile DJ. Disco was the first music that captivated him but by the early 80s Cox had moved on to playing the same music as other young London DJs – rare groove, New York hip-hop and electro. He was perfectly placed to hear Chicago house music in its earliest forms, and when the epic 'Acid Trax' by Phuture (a.k.a. DJ Pierre) came out in early '87. “It was then that I thought, 'This is it,’ says Carl. “I would do my parties, and I'd play old rare groove and hip hop and soul and I would say 'Right you've got to hear this Phuture track’ and people would just stop. It's funny because all the people who thought I had freaked out then are the people who are making the music now."
As a founder of the sound, Carl rode the exploding British rave scene. He played the opening night of Danny Rampling's legendary Shoom, co-promoted The Project with Paul Oakenfold, held a residency at the Zap Club in Brighton and at the Sunrise rave in 1988, hooked up a third turntable for his dawn-breaking set, got 15,000 kids back on their feet, and established a personal rep for three-deck wizardry.
Intec Digital is also be the home of Carl’s artist album, ‘All Roads Lead to the Dancefloor,’ released in 2011. “It’s the most forward-thinking album I’ve ever made,” promises Carl. “I’ve missed making music and I’m really looking forward to finally getting it out there, especially as it’s coming out on Intec.” On top of this, there are plans to follow the already successful Intec live shows, with a full Intec world tour, featuring Carl and his label’s artists, details to be announced.
Summer 2012 has will marked a landmark anniversary of Carl’s now legendary Ibiza residency, as Carl Cox and Safehouse Management celebrate an astounding 12th consecutive year at Space. Marking a change in direction from traditional Ibiza parties, Carl and his Space revolution has always been acclaimed for its adventurous and forward-thinking line-ups, musical direction and state of the art production. This, along with Carl’s highly involved and passionate role as promoter, programmer and host, is why each year has seen a growth and progression from the last, both in terms of quality and size, with 2012 continuing being one of their most successful seasons yet. “We had a successful night because we just batten down the hatches and stick to what we do best, which is give value for money,” explains Carl. “People came back to us, as they’re big believers in our brand. Also Space is a great club, they’ve spent a lot of money on it, and it’s just getting better and better. We had a phenomenal year and I promise 2013 is going to be even better.”
All this and still Carl’s ‘Global’ radio show is breaking records, now reaching over 12-million listeners worldwide and syndicated across 60 terrestrial FM, Satellite and DAB stations throughout 35 countries, making him one of the most important broadcasters on the planet.
Carl shows no signs of slowing down. “After the Ibiza seasons, after the festivals I’ve done, after my own events, albums and remixing,” says Carl, “the story still continues in a massive way – there’s so much more still to come.”
