Rave to the global sound of Carl Cox
Beginning his career as a teenager in the late 1970s, Carl Cox started out as a mobile DJ playing disco at a variety of events. His formative years coincided with the launch of Chicago house music in the UK, which saw original hits produced by Chicago-based artists explode onto the British club scene. A pioneer of this sound, Carl Cox became heavily involved in the British rave scene and played such venues as Shoom, Zap Club and the Sunrise rave. It was at this event that he first established his skills in three-deck mixing, a rare move that marked him out as a unique and inspiring DJ. Although initially somewhat underground, techno became his signature sound when he began to make music himself and he has continued in this genre since the 1990s, contributing to its ever-growing popularity. Famous UK clubs such as The Hacienda, Velvet Underground and Heaven have all been privy to a Carl Cox set, while he has also played at some of the genre's most famous festivals, including Tomorrowland, Amsterdam Dance Event and Ultra Europe. Although he has decreased the number of his appearances he makes in recent years, you can still get tickets to experience Carl Cox playing to raving crowds across the world.
Marvel at the skill behind a Carl Cox set
Although a stalwart of the British DJ scene, Carl Cox is notable for his international reach and circle of like-minded DJs. The wildly popular 'Carl Cox and Friends' stage, held for the first time at Ultra Music Festival in 2004, was repeated at other events such as Awakenings and saw the DJ provide a unique techno experience for festival-goers alongside international artists like Laurent Garnier, Loco Dice and Maceo Plex. Carl Cox's Ibiza connection was also incredibly long-running: he played an annual residency at Space Club from 2001 until 2016 and hosted a marathon ten-hour closing set for his final show in the venue. Such an impressive performance is typical of Carl Cox events, which are energetic, vibrant and demonstrative of his undying passion for the techno genre.
