After his departure from a legendary residency at Space in Ibiza, you have to ask; where is Carl Cox now? Among many of the world’s Dance floors, the Techno tastemaker has taken his talents to Australia. Though he is fond of playing there, he is rather frank about the shelf life of underground music down under. He had this to say in an interview with inthemix:
In the bigger clubs here, it’s difficult to try and have pure underground music. If the managers can see that there aren’t enough people buying drinks, you’ll have a shelf life of about two to six months maximum. Then you’ll be out on the street, they’ll get an EDM DJ in there, and he’ll bring friends, the venue will sell drinks, and everything else like that.
Despite this culture in place, Cox is still intent on playing shows in Australia and will do so as the headliner for his one Pure festival in April.
