5 quick minutes with the big guy in preview of 2009
Carl Cox said:they’ve moved the bars back and the old DJ box, you know where the light and sound guy has been for years, well that is gone. Instead the lighting guy is by the Red Box, so now he overlooks the whole room. They’ve definitely spent money on it, so when people walk in it’ll be a nicer room to be in, the bar areas will be less crowded with people struggling to get past each other.
I saw Cox about a month or so ago. He was absolutely fantastic... really got the atmosphere going in a pretty intimate club. the music was more banging than I have heard him play over the last few years. He seemed to be playing less electro guff and more techno. It went down a treat in the club!
as my interview say, coxy at his best was 6 hour specials on the old terrace from 2 or 3 in the afternoon playing rockin latin infused house and techno.
best ever parties ever.
Lol, what sort of club did you see him in? I saw him at the Stiff Kitten in Belfast which is pretty much techno, tech/deep house aside from a few curve balls. In fact I don't think I've heard electro there at all.
Not surprising if he tailors his set for the surroundings.
It was at the Arches Glasgow on easter sunday.
He started off with electro but went into some tech house stuff later- i wouldn't exactly class it as banging techno - definitely not as hard as he was playing at Space in '06.
What's up with the party calendar for Coxy? It has some dates with his name twice in the discoteca and some with him twice in the sunset terrace- does that mean 2 sets or is it just a typo?
well he typically plays both rooms...i would guess that's still the case and just an error that lists him in the one room or the other twice instead of 1x in each room.
I saw him in Cardiff few weeks back I thought his set was quite housey like proper house in a good way!
he's a very nice guy as I harrassed him to shake my hand about 50 times and have pictures with me (on my facebook lol) and not once did he ignore he shook my hand every time! Seeing the state of me he could have just brushed me off but he has time for everyone even the stalkers!(me lol)
