The house legend drops dnb mix at Eats Everything’s request
Years ago, I would’ve been super early to this mix. Back when running an EDM site was my day job, Eats Everything was someone I always checked for. Dude was quirky, made good tunes, and was kinda “alt” for folks who didn’t want big room beats but still needed to get their groove on. These days, following most of that is out of the window, but it’s always cool to see that his show, Edible Beats, is going strong, and doing dope shit like getting the legendary Carl Cox to drop a dnb mix for NYE.
Wait, Carl Cox spins dnb?
Um, yes. The 58-year-old Cox has been a staple in the dance music. He’s been rocking parties and producing anthems since the ’80s, and is one of those faces that seems to be at every major festival across the world—that’s probably why he called his radio show “Global”. Primarily known for his house and techno selections, Cox is no stranger to the dnb scene—he’s done full-on dnb sets on Global before, and even dropped a dnb remix of Russell Small’s “It Is What It Is” just last year. It’s what he ends this set with, which shouldn’t be a surprise.
The tracklist is solid; cuts like Commix’s “Be True” reside with newer bits like Enei’s “Sinking” VIP and remix work from Nu:Tone, Bou, Break, and Breakage, among others. It kinda is what it is: Carl Cox giving you a taste of where his dnb leanings are. Mad heads are shocked, which is weird; this is what DJs are supposed to do!
