Carl Cox has shared a recent live performance from Medway in San Francisco.
By all accounts the place was packed and sweaty with smiling clubbers, and Coxy played until well into the morning. His recording bumps with the energy that only Carl can produce, full of swelling techno and buoyant Coxy catch-phrases — oh yes!
The set was recorded in March as part of the annual Burning Man fundraiser for the Playground sound camp, of which Carl is a co-founder. Playground will return to Black Rock City in 2019, mainly due to the contributions raised from the fundraiser.
“It can’t be done without them and Carl is eternally thankful, as are all the camp creatives, for the support given by so many,” the camp states.
Joseph Capriati, Brennen Grey, Paul Skinback, Pleasurekraft, Igor Marijuan, Mark London, Ben Seagren, and Syd Gris also played that night. No word yet on whether or not we’ll hear those sets, but we’ll be the first to inform you if anything drops.
Speaking of impressive, Carl will be playing Arcadia's new 50-metre high stage at Glastonbury with plenty of other techno talent. And he’ll play two very special shows at Ibiza’s DC-10 this summer. Anyone who’s seen those knows just how special they are.
Listen to Carl’s set below.
