C IS FOR CARL COX (PT2)

Carl Cox is a legendary UK artist and DJ. He was there 20 years ago at the start of the UK house explosion and is still here today.

 

His DJ bio says:

 

The last several years have been absolutely mind blowing. In between jet-setting between gigs as far afield as South Africa, Israel, Tasmania and Asia I kick-started my acting career in the classic UK clubbing film ‘Human Traffic’ and somewhere along the way I found time to start new labels Ultimatum Breaks and Intec to focus on providing quality purist house and techno. I have regularly contributed Essential mixes for Radio One and I followed up the success of FACT (1&2) with several more mix albums including ‘Phuture 2000’.
 

 

My career has been marked by a number of awards – I was awarded IDA ‘DJ Of The Year’ 2 years in a row, Muzik named me as the Best British DJ and I’ve had more honours from NME, Dancestar and countless other organisations all over the world.

 

 
Out of so many highs it is difficult to pin-point the peak for me – it is a close call between The Love Parade and the dawn of the millennium. Playing for a crowd of 1,500,00 up-for-it clubbers in Berlin was the ultimate DJing experience in terms of seeing how wide reaching music can be but then being lucky enough to see in the millennium not once but twice – first on Bondi pavilion, then hopping on a jet over the timeline to Honolulu, Hawaii, was also pretty special. More recently I have given up my residency at Base in order to concentrate on spreading myself even further afield.
