Carl Cox, techno DJ legend revealed details of his brand-new album, ‘Electronic Generations’ his first record in over 10 years – out September 16th via BMG.
With the announcement also comes another new track release, ‘How It Makes You Feel’ with Nicole Moudaber, out now. This techno piece is the second ‘pre-mix’ release from the album, following the first single, ‘Speed Trials on Acid’ earlier this year – a collaboration with his friend and fellow DJ Fatboy Slim.
In today’s darkness of techno I wanted to create something more jovial. So the original is quite an easy track to enjoy, it’s very bubbly and bouncy. But with this new version Nicole has made a very dark twisted re-imagining. It’s now very much epic techno – which you have to play from beginning to end to get the full experience. It takes you on a journey, and it just gets stronger and stronger with its twists and turns.Carl Cox
Showcasing a fusion of Carl’s unique live electronic sound, the 17-track ‘Electronic Generations’ is the result of Carl’s hybrid-live sets. Which he’s been successfully showcasing over the last few years. Anyone that’s been to one of these shows will have witnessed Carl in his element, remixing, producing and creating music while he plays. With the first lockdown Carl finally had time to focus on putting this sound on record. He spent months in his Melbourne studio creating music and experimenting as a live electronic artist. The result is Carl Cox at his best, a tour de force which you can feel he has given everything to. It’s an insight into the heart and soul of a hugely established and much-loved artist. Carl Cox, who after 30 years into his career, is still keen to take risks and create something entirely new.
I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to share this album. As a live artist and a DJ I get to play all over the world and to see people enjoying the shared experience of being together and dancing. I’ve pulled together all the elements that I’ve learned from watching those crowds, added my sound and tried to bring you a true electronic music experienceCarl Cox
