Biography

Cox attended Glastonbury High Boys secondary modern school on Glastonbury Road in Morden. Cox began his career as a hardcore and acid house DJ in the mid-1980s and made a name for himself as the "Three Deck Wizard" in 1988. During that year's Second Summer of Love, he began to play on three turntables at once. He has played at clubs such as The Eclipse, Edge, Shelly's, Sterns Nightclub, Heaven, Sir Henry's in Cork,Ireland and Angels and The Haçienda, as well as raves for Fantazia, Dreamscape and Amnesia House. He now spearheads two record labels, Intec Records and 23rd Century Records.

On 3 November 2007 during a gig in Venezuela a shooting spree broke out. Four people were killed and five were injured. A video from the club, showing Cox's reaction to the gunfire and the aftermath of the shooting, was posted on the Internet. Cox later made a statement on his website:

I am deeply shocked and still stunned by the events of Saturday [3rd November]. My condolences go out to victims that were caught up in the horrific act that took place at this gig. I am informed that it was gang-related, and feel so sad that anybody would act in such a manner when the event was full of 7000 people having fun. I find it such a sad moment in electronic music as this was probably one of the best set up shows I had played in South America – a sign of real progress…yet utterly hijacked by this mindless act. Again, my heart goes out to those that have died or been injured. This is NOT what the dance scene is about and is a million miles away from what I want to do, or promote.
 
— Carl Cox

Carl Cox is the first person to be named number one DJ in the world on DJ Magazine's Top 100 DJ poll when he won in 1997.[1] This poll is widely considered the authority on ranking DJs, although not the only poll.
