Carl Cox

The Sound of Ultimate BASE


Finally, a mix that doesn’t skimp on the essentials! This mix from the big man belts out a hefty dosage of muscular hardhouse from beginning right on through to the end of the 18 track set.

The track listing is varied, consisting of artists from both sides of the pond. Cox’s own “The Player” segues into “Destination Unknown” by Green Velvet, a favorite of Florida audiences. Other than those cuts, many of the titles will be unfamiliar. Cox’s choice of programming is on the money.

The recording may seem somewhat impersonal but the mix is meant to be heard on the world’s burliest sound systems, i.e. The End or Velvet Underground. Even though it’s more fun to listen for the mixes and see where they begin and end, residents of the Southeast (which according to industry number-crunchers is considered the lowest maintenance stateside market) will want more than they can get on this disk. Fear not, Cox is set to headline the Moonshine Over America.Tour®, which is set to hit the states in mid-October. Until then this should get all you househeads into the proper frame of mind.
