Rainbow would be the best noun to illustrate an artist that has been through it all, you name it odds are he’s probably already done it. Described as a Veteran DJ and Music ambassador since he was in short trousers. From a simple white canvas with a few amateur drawings to a colorful Master Piece.
As a Painter the master piece that put him on track was his live performance at Zap Club in Brighton in 1988. Where he decided to turn the heat up by spinning with 3 vinyl decks, making 15000 knocked up ravers get back up on their already swollen feet. From there on he’s been enjoying a wide variety of scenes, such as djing at SW4, WMC, The Arches, Matter, the Global Gathering which are nothing but baby steps when compared to his respectable record of djing in Ibiza for 8 years in a row. As if the festivals weren’t a colorful palette, Mr Carl Cox has been spotted djing alongside Fat Boy Slim, Francois Kevorkian, Laurent Garnier, Fedde Le Grand, Green Velvet, Pendulum, Plump Djs and many others.
Rainbow Man’s I Want You dropped in 1991 top 30 hits under the Perfecto Label. Not really feeling the sounds of trance and ‘fluffy’ house of the time, he turned back to the underground world where he met his true love, TECHNO. Ever Since he’s been spinning techno bangers as if they we’re nothing but doodles in a white canvas. I Want You track has been remixed by the mighty Deadmau5 and has remixed Moby’s Walk With Me from a sophisticated track into a certified techno banger. 2006 saw the celebration of Carl Cox's own label Intec Records drop it's 50th release Sebastien Leger's Bad Clock.
Carl Cox is a man of quality not quantity, his experience as a dj has given him an ear for selecting quality tunes. Thus I strongly recommend to keep and eye out for his top charts on beatport and his mixes on b@Tv.
