Happy Monday y’all!
As Thanksgiving is officially over, it’s time to crank up the Christmas carols and get your holiday shopping list rolling. Carl Cox is basically an EDM legend at this point. If you’ve been living under a rock, check out his iconic Boiler Room set in Ibiza circa 2013.
Now that you’re caught up, the legend is actually a major user of Richie Hawtin’s MODEL1 mixer! In the video below, Cox takes us through the steps of his set up, and explains the basics of how he mixes during his sets. Pretty rad. Watch below:
Throughout the video, Cox says:
“I always start my sets with [the CDJs]. People want to see something from me which is tangible, so if I’m playing a track, they want to see the action. If I do that (Carl backspins on a CDJ), you hear that. I’m able to do spinbacks, cuts, loops, and track marks [beat jump].”
