Carl Cox Profile – Singers Review

By Jepan Mihai

Carl Cox is the first person to be named number one DJ in the world on DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJ poll when he won in 1997. He began his career as a hardcore and acid house DJ in the 1980s and made a name for himself as the “Three Deck Wizard” in 1988.

During that year’s Second Summer of Love, he began to play on three turntables at once. He has played at clubs such as The Eclipse, Edge, Shelly’s, Sterns Nightclub, Heaven, Sir Henry’s in Cork, Angels and The Haienda.

During a gig in Venezuela in 2007 a shooting spree broke out. Four people were killed and five were injured. There is a video from the club, showing Cox’s reaction to the gunfire and the aftermath of the shooting, was posted on the Internet. Cox later made a statement on his website: He says: “I am deeply shocked and still stunned by the events of Saturday [3rd November]. My condolences go out to victims that were caught up in the horrific act that took place at this gig.

I am informed that it was gang-related, and feel so sad that anybody would act in such a manner when the event was full of 7000 people having fun. I find it such a sad moment in electronic music as this was probably one of the best set up shows I had played in South America – a sign of real progress…yet utterly hijacked by this mindless act.

Again, my heart goes out to those that have died or been injured. This is NOT what the dance scene is about and is a million miles away from what I want to do, or promote.” Albums: In 1996 At The End Of The Cliche, (edel UK Records/Worldwide Ultimatum Records), in 1999 Phuture 2000′ (edel UK Records/Worldwide Ultimatum Records), and in 2005 Second Sign Carl’s ‘Global’ radio show has now reached over 4 million listeners and is broadcast across 24 countries worldwide, making him one of the most important broadcasters on the planet.

Look out soon for the forthcoming DVD, which is an insight into Coxy’s life, following him on his travels around the world, with interviews from friends, family and industry figures along the way. The DVD will feature a full set recorded live from his sell out gig at Matter in London and promises to be an absolute must for all dance music fans. Carl Cox is truly a musical ambassador, a professional DJ since his early teens, a veteran of acid house and a champion of techno.
