Carl Cox‘s official biography, Oh Yes, Oh Yes, is available to pre-order now.
Speaking from his home in Melbourne last year during an episode of Dubfire’s DJs and Beers streaming series, Coxy revealed that alongside his tour manager Ian he’d written a book titled Oh Yes, Oh Yes.
Now, the biography has been given a release date of August 2021, and will be published by White Rabbit – who have also published books by XL Recordings head Richard Russell, and Chris Frantz from Talking Heads.
Coxy had previously said that the book was finished before the pandemic, but the impact of COVID-19 and more personal events in recent months had put a halt on his plans to release it. “We’d actually written the book before the pandemic,” Coxy said. “But we put a hold on it, because the book isn’t finished yet. There’s still so much story to tell. What happened afterwards with my family, where I am at, the [Electronic Music] scene itself, what’s going to happen in the future.”
The book’s blurb reads “This is the true insider story of the man known as ‘the three deck wizard’ and the King of Ibiza, a DJ who continues to innovate and thrill music-lovers on the world’s biggest stages.”
You can pre-order Oh Yes, Oh Yes, which will be available on the 19th August 2021, via Rough Trade.
As part of his weekly Cabin Fever: Sunday Vinyl Session series in July last year, Cox played an hour of soul, R&B, funk, reggae, soca and calypso music in tribute to his late father Henry Carlisle Cox.
In January this year, the UK electronic stalwart, who is typically known for his sets of rolling techno, delivered a brand new drum & bass mix for Eats Everything’s Edible Records radio show, Edible Beats.
