Oh yes, oh yes!

From warm up DJ at the birth of Acid House to global main stage headline artist today, Carl Cox continues to inspire and influence audiences and artists.
Carl has been everything from a recording artist and producer to label owner, radio DJ and broadcaster. He is still all these things and much more with his star shining brighter than ever. Oh yes, oh yes! tells the story, in his own words, of the man known as ‘The Three Deck Wizard’ on the rave scene before evolving into ‘The People’s Choice’ and the King of Ibiza; a DJ and artist who remains at the very top of his game and continues to innovate and thrill music-lovers on the world’s biggest stages. Starting off as a shelf-stacker, grass cutter and scaffolder in the south London suburbs, Carl’s phenomenal talents as a DJ grew out of a love of music nurtured in his parents’ front room. In Oh yes, oh yes! he takes us to the heart of the party, from the UK rave scene to Burning Man and from Ibiza to Melbourne, and a career that in many ways is the story of club culture and an inspiration to all those who choose to follow their dreams turning him into a living legend along the way. Oh yes, oh yes! is a remarkably candid and intimate portrait of an artist who has never lost touch with the people who share the dancefloor with him. ‘Carl is one of the few true pioneers of UK club culture internationally. He has opened the door to so many DJs and inspired so many, including me.’ Gilles Peterson ‘Carl Cox wrote the script of what it means to be a DJ.’ David Guetta ‘People use the term legend far too easily for my liking but Carl is legend personified.’ Grooverider ‘Carl has always been my favourite. He is the complete DJ, also the DJs DJ. Records come to life when he plays them, rooms come to life when he rocks them. His enthusiasm is infectious, his commitment complete.’ Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim
