“The dance music titan delivers a rare live set.
Since the early ’90s, Carl Cox has been the biggest DJ in dance music, an artist whose success and longevity remains unrivalled. He’s a brand, a logo, a catchphrase, helming perennial world tours and record-breaking Ibiza residencies. But underpinning this great machine is something much more simple: a man with an undying passion for playing records. Most house and techno fans have at some point gazed up at Cox’s gap-toothed grin from the dance floor. Or chuckled along to his silly patter on the mic. For more than three decades, he has embodied the joy of raving.
So what does the king of the rave do in a pandemic? Since his US tour was interrupted last spring, Cox has been at home on his farm in Melbourne, broadcasting weekly streams from his studio, El Rancho, and finally tending to some long-neglected projects. One of these was putting together a live show, which he has done only once before, back in the early ’90s. Framed by a wall of vinyl and surrounded by hardware, Cox recorded RA.768 at El Rancho earlier this month. ”
