Carl Cox

Media Title

Get out those rave pants and glowsticks! Of course, one doesn’t have to be a seasoned club kid to appreciate the majesty of England’s own Carl Cox, but his DJ sets have been known to attract the hardcore rave crew. He’s really only got four proper LPs to his credit, but his latest, 2011’s appropriately titled All Roads Lead to the Dancefloor, is a super-modern take on dance-oriented rave-like sets—long songs, guest vocalists, buildups and releases, a pulsating and constant beat and so on. Dude brings decades of experience to the Electric Factory tonight, though; from BBC DJ slots to massive, undulating festival crowds. Cox isn’t necessarily world famous for his original records, but he’s got a super-long list of compilations and remixes under his belt that’ll no doubt add some muscle to his teeming arsenal tonight.

The two places that come to mind when you think about the legendary Brit’s sweat-saturated sets are Ibiza, where his Space residency’s reigned since 2001 and—though Miami’s the fest’s primary home—the roving Ultra Music Festival. Thank goodness Cox has never been bitten by the vile #EDM bug. While he does make electronic dance music, that even has a faint, distant squeak and skronk, this musical chef’s flavors are way more chill. His spin sessions are sure to bring out the full-on tribal give-them-space rave master and the blissful head-bobber in equal proportion. // BILL CHENEVERT
