DJ Mag catches up with Carl Cox as he flies back from yet another summer in Ibiza, so we ask him if it is still the centre of the dance music world? "Yes, I would suggest that it is an incredibly important part of the dance calendar, and also all the promoters across the world go there on holiday so this makes it very important too.
I am not sure anywhere else has such a concentration of talent in one place for three months." As a firm fixture in the Top 100 poll Carl has an overview on the dance scene that not many others can claim to share, so does he think that dance music still has a cutting edge? "Loads, that is the beauty of dance, it always has a live and very active underground scene," he says.
With lots of new faces coming through this year, we cheekily ask if Carl can see the day where he might feel too old to DJ? "Lets see," he grins, "slow down maybe. Stop? I am not sure about that!"
