Carl Cox and Richie Hawtin honored through vintage DJ trading cards
The vastness of the internet can occasionally turn up gems, especially when those seeking hidden treasures are tech-savvy with a soft spot for 90s nostalgia. All these conditions came together serendipitously earlier this year, when Pulse Radio uncovered a series of fourteen DJ “trading cards” that were released in 1996 as an accompaniment to Mr. C’s mix CD, X-Mix: The Electronic Storm. Mr. C, along with other legends of dance music like Carl Craig, Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox, and Paul van Dyk, are among the subjects of the original cards. The series include fun facts about the artists such as their longest-ever set, number of 12” releases, and BPM preference (which stays close to 130, across the board).
