Carl Cox dives into three different genres with ‘This Is Our Time’ [Stream]
Carl is king.
For over 30 years Carl Cox has defined what it means to be a club DJ. His unmatched versatility and animated antics behind the decks have made him a living legend. One set will be raw techno. The next tinged with drum ‘n’ bass. It’s impossible to predict what he is going to deliver, and his latest release is a testament to this fact.
The ‘This Is Our Time’ EP, landing via Filth on Acid, consists of three distinct versions of the title track, each with its own unique identity. By working with Christopher Coe and Reinier Zonneveld, Cox was able to flesh out the differences between each, all while keeping them focused around the central theme: “This is our moment. This is our time.”
This first of the three is the filth mix, which evokes a dark, warehouse techno feel. The second cut is the pure mix, which introduces varied percussion patterns that fans of Cox will find so familiar. To close is the awesome mix which revives the mid-range and provides a sweeping, melodic feel. Listen to all three versions below:
