Carl Cox has won the Highest Techno award in this year’s DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll. The British icon landed the No.53 spot overall.
A titan of the worldwide electronic music scene, Cox a global ambassador whose effervescence and joie de vivre behind the decks is absolutely infectious.
Junction 2 festival’s organisers have announced that it will return in 2019 for its fourth edition, expanding to become a two day event in June.
Set to take place on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th June next year, the award winning festival will return to London’s Boston Manor Park for what promises to be yet another exceptional party.
While the festival Saturday will remain focussed on hard-edged house and techno sets, the newly introduced Friday bill will focus on a more diverse and eclectic range of sounds from a wide and versatile range of DJs and producers.
Carl Cox has shared his b2b set with Joseph Capriati from Burning Man.
It's the first time ever Neapolitan techno don Capriati has hit the festival, which takes place at Black Rock City, in the midst of the Nevada Desert.
Both men are known for their lengthy spells in the booth— Capriati once span for 25 hours straight in Miami, and Cox's 2016 closing of Space in Ibiza is a ten hour thing of legend. This may not reach those epic proportions but nevertheless the pair, who are no strangers to teaming up, go at it for almost three hours.

"It’s dreams come true stuff,” says Eats Everything, aka ever-jovial Bristolian Dan Pearce, when we talk to him about his debut release on Intec. A long-standing fan of the label started by Carl Cox and now run with Jon Rundell, his two-tracker (out now) — featuring ‘Bettah’ backed by ‘No Seatin Available’ — not only marks his own confidence in finally making techno, a process he puts down to a less-is-more approach in the studio, but also kicks off a series of back to back gigs between Dan and Carl.
