Concord Music Publishing signs global publishing deal with dance music pioneer Carl Cox21 June 2022 - Press release
Concord Music Publishing is delighted to announce the global signing of legendary DJ/Producer/Remixer and recording artist, the inimitable Carl Cox.
Effective immediately, the new deal covers his catalogue including his seminal 1991 hit "I Want You Forever," collaborations and co-writes with the likes of Nile Rogers, Nicole Moudaber, Fatboy Slim, Juan Atkins, Josh Wink, Franky Wah and Sofi Tukker, alongside all new material including his forthcoming new album, Electronic Generations, his first to be released in over a decade.
Harri Davies, Senior A&R Director at Concord Music Publishing comments, "There is no greater icon and personality in Dance music than the mighty Carl Cox. Concord is honoured and beyond proud to be representing his catalogue and forthcoming music into the next chapter of his illustrious career."
Kim Frankiewicz, EVP Worldwide A&R at Concord Music Publishing added, "Carl has been at the top of his game for the last 40 years and continues to be ever present at the centre of dance culture.
It really is a 'pinch me' moment to have Carl join us at Concord, not only with his fantastic catalogue, but his new music too which we cannot wait for the world to hear!"
Carl Cox comments, "I'm really proud of Electronic Generations and when I played it to Concord and saw them smile, I knew this would be a good home for me. They get it and they get what I'm all about – and that means they can help me spread my sound far and wide."
Alon Shulman, CEO of World Famous Group & Carl Cox's manager continues: "I was looking for someone who could see past the legendary Carl Cox and dive into the music. With nothing to prove as a DJ, Carl has made a big leap into both a studio based as well as main stage live electronic artist and we needed a publisher who could ride with that. Carl's music is already heard in movies, on tv, in games and on radio and with Concord we hope to share his love of music even further."
Carl Cox has been making the world dance for the last 40 years and is often cited as one of the greatest DJ/Producer/Remixers of all time. Through 80s Chicago house, the 90s rave scene and his legendary 15-year residency at the Space nightclub in Ibiza, Carl has been ever-present at the centre of dance culture. Amazingly his stature continues to grow as he keeps on pushing the global dance music industry forward. Simply put he is the don of dance music.
Currently ranked #27 on DJ Mag's Top 100 DJ's, Cox has been in the Top 100 since the list started in the early 90's. Cox has dedicated his whole life to the craft of mixing and collecting records.
His performance diary as always is packed. Cox will be co-headlining the Arcadia stage, back-to-back with fellow Concord songwriters, Chase & Status at Glastonbury later this month and starts his new Ibiza residency at DC10 this July alongside dates across Europe plus his Brighton Beach takeover. He plays Wembley Arena in September before a series of dates in the USA.
Earlier this year, Cox debuted his Hybrid Live show at Ultra Music Festival Miami, where he played to 165,000 people across 3 days. Ultra Music Festival have recently announced Cox will headline again in 2023, and play the entire weekend, from 5pm on Friday until closing on Sunday in Resistance's Carl Cox Megastructure.
