A new documentary from DJSounds looks at the impact of touring and DJing on the mental health and lives of those lucky enough to do it. ‘Why We DJ – Slaves to the Rhythm’ is a 38-min insight into the world of travelling, performing, partying and producing and how the fast-paced world of dance music can take its toll. Luciano, Seth Troxler, B Traits, Carl Cox, and Ben Pearce – whose mental health issues have been widely publicised – all discuss their own views and experiences on the road.
Carl Cox has been revealed as the winner of the Highest Techno category in this year’s DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll. The British icon came in at No. 62 overall.
Unofficially known as the Nicest Man In Dance Music, Carl has taken a bit of time out to do other things besides DJing this year.
“I’ve been running the Carl Cox Motorsport team,” he told DJ Mag after scooping the Highest Techno gong again. And one look at the group’s Facebook page suggests they’ve had some great successes of late.
Carl Cox's set from Burning Man is now online and available to stream.
Coxy is next in a long line of DJs (Skrillex, Diplo, et al.) to release their sets from the famous desert-based festival, that kicks off each year in the Black Rock Desert of northwest Nevada.

The Social Festival is back for a fifth round in 2017, with the much-loved Maidstone-based event set to kick off at the close of this month (September).
Running 29th and 30th September at the Kent County Showground, the festival is owned by UK DJ/producer Nic Fanciulli and this year includes sets from Cassy, The Martinez Brothers, Apollonia, Monika Kruse and Guy Gerber, alongside Nic's close friend and mentor Carl Cox.
David Morales took ravers back to the early nineties during a recent interview. While reminiscing about his first summers on the White Isle, the New York-house legend made it a point to call out the island’s shifting priorities: “Ibiza in the ‘90s was all about the music and not about catering for VIPs”.
According to Morales, 25 years ago, it was club brands that ultimately drove crowds, not the VIPs nor the artists themselves: “It was more about the brand back in those days. Cream, Manumission, Renaissance, Money Penny's and Ministry of Sound.”
Ultra Worldwide’s RESISTANCE concept continues to expand at a rapid pace. The house and techno series is set to curate events on four continents this fall.
