If Tycho’s blissful set wasn’t enough for you, dive into veteran DJ and producer Carl Cox’s absolute masterclass of a mix taken at this year’s Burning Man.
Having been involved with Burning Man for well over a decade, Cox know’s what to deliver with his hour and a half set taken from the Playground stage filled with fresh and old cuts of house including a play of seminal groover “The Bomb” by The Bucketheads that’d certainly keep any feet moving across the playa.
Speaking with Carl Cox last year he touched on his fondness of Burning Man telling Stoney Roads about his first experience and why he keeps going back year on year;
In 2008 I had some friends at Burning Man so I decided to pack a backpack, jump on a plane and head to the Playa and see what happens. As soon as I arrived on the Friday morning about 2 am it was pitch black, but all I could see were the lights and people moving about on bikes, it was incredible.
What is amazing is that everything that you see, touch and feel is someone’s expression. Keeping in mind there isn’t any electricity, or water it is amazing to think that people build the experience and then they leave without a trace. I just find that so refreshing.
I mean, I’m not there for the money or to further my career in anyway, in-fact it costs me money to get there and set up! I’m not worried about that, our camp members all raise money and contribute to the running of our setup on the Playa.
I just love that for one week – no watch, no phone, no internet – anything that happens in that week is what you make of it, and that’s the beauty of Burning Man.
