Currently, Cox is stateside in support of his debut major-label mix CD, Carl Cox Global. The disc, released on FFRR/Strictly Rhythm, features only a couple of well-known dance artists -- Angel Moraes ("Turn It Up") and DJ Disciple ("Treble & Bass") -- in order to focus on quality cuts from Oxia (the retro "Nation"), Bryan Zentz (the brooding "Watch the Sun") and Simulation (the bouncy "Simulation"). While staying true to his four-on-the-floor philosophy, Cox lays down a tribal-house style that avoids the pots-and-pans grind of many tribal DJs. With richly produced drum beds and just a sprinkling of vocal samples, Cox's sound is warm and organic in comparison with that of peers like Armand Van Helden or Victor Calderone. While Cox is always a crowd-pleaser in a live setting, his tense style can take some getting used to for the uninitiated. Once you get comfortable in his world, however, Global is a dance-floor treat.
