DJ CARL COX TO RELEASE SECOND SIGN ON APRIL 4, 2006
KOCH Records has announced the release of Second Sign, the new DJ-mixed artist album by DJ Carl Cox, on April 4th, 2006. Second Sign contains 15 original Carl Cox tracks produced in conjunction with heavyweight electronic producers like Fatboy Slim aka Norman Cook, Josh Wink, Roni Size, Mistress Barbara and others. Cox has mixed up styles one would never think of putting together - house, soul, punk, techno and drum and bass.
Known as one of the best DJs in the world, Carl Cox has been part of Britain's dance scene from the heady days of disco through to the global clubland of the '90s, with temporary pit-stops covering hip hop, the rare-groove movement and the immense rave revolution of the late '80s.
