Other than powerful half-alliteration, Carl Cox’s Pure nights at Privilege promise a raw Techno experience in a new environment at the white isle of Ibiza. Cox took a much-deserved hiatus after his last time behind the decks of Space, now called Hï. He had this to say to Mixmag about his return:
“For me, my spiritual home of the island has gone and I have to find a new spiritual home to continue me being back on the island. It was never a question of me leaving the island, it was always about what do I do next based on what I did myself to create a home for Carl Cox and my music,” Cox said.
Through reading his thoughts on what plans he has for this series of nights, it’s clear that Cox is going full speed ahead with a “go hard or go home” mentality. Despite this, though, he maintains an open mind about the culture of the island as a whole. It would be very worth it to stop by his nights at the biggest club in the world to see another slice of history unfold; this time to say hello to a movement.
“I really, really want to get people to understand at the end of the day that you don’t pull your phone out because there’s fireworks going off. You don’t pull your phone out because there are three DJs standing on top of the turntables or the CDJs or even their laptop and telling people to jump. We’re not doing any of that stuff. We’re stripping it down and getting people to hear raw, unadulterated techno and house music. If you’re not into it, I would just say ‘don’t come down, don’t bother.’”
