Electric Forest Curated Event SoundCloud Playlist: Carl Cox and Friends
Alright house music freaks, Carl Cox and Friends is the Curated Event dedicated to you. This one has a lineup spanning from classic house to deep psychedelic house. The event will begin on Thursday June 25th 6: 30 to 2 am on the Tripolee Stage, so attendees will be greeted with the continuous heartbeat of house, or for the more sentimental, the heartbeat of the home that is known as Electric Forest.
For those that are unaware, Carl Cox is an innovator of acid house and has been in the scene since its earliest forms resonating out of Chicago. He took this style all over the world, caught big breaks and rose to fame, and eventually made his own label, Intec Records, in 1999, which eventually faded and came back as Intec Digital in 2010. The new label has garnered much more support and he is bringing that momentum straight to Tripolee on Thursday.
As for his SoundCloud efforts, Carl Cox hasn’t touched it in a few years. It seems that most of his energy is being concentrated on his new label, which has its own SoundCloud that is loaded with progressive house.
John Digweed and Pete Tong seem to be pushing a lot of their live recordings. The recordings featured here are from Miami and Southbeach, both of which are within the last six months, so it is to be expected that a throwdown at Ultra Music Festival would retain the same energy, if not more, as an Electric Forest set.
Saeed Younan and Matrixxman are the up and coming house DJs in the group, as their SoundCloud followers are significantly less than the rest of the group. However their music doesn’t imply that the same holds true for their talent. Be sure to check out their collaborations and live sets. Plus when an artist has a track called “Forest Nymphs” how couldn’t Matrixxman be a part of this production?
