DJ legend Carl Cox finally reveals details of this brand-new artist album, ‘Electronic Generations’ his first record in over 10 years.

With the announcement also comes another new track release, ‘How It Makes You Feel’ with Nicole Moudaber, out now. This techno juggernaut is the second ‘pre-mix’ release from the album, following the first single, ‘Speed Trials on Acid’ earlier this year – a collaboration with his friend and fellow DJ Fatboy Slim.

With its relentless synth chops and pounding melodies, ‘How It Makes You Feel’ levitates into a ruthless percussion delirium, before a high octane breakdown tops off the hardcore house techno hybrid sound. It’s another bold statement from the King of techno and another exciting taste of his forthcoming new album ‘Electronic Generations.’

‘How It Makes You Feel’ is the second time Carl and Nicole have collaborated, following their acclaimed 2014 release ‘See You Next Tuesday.’ Nicole first came to the attention of Carl when she signed to his label Intec Records back in 2009. Since then the pair have become firm friends. Carl invited Nicole to remix his own track ‘Chemistry’ in 2011 and Nicole Moudaber has played alongside Carl Cox at countless festivals and clubs including his Carl Cox & Friends festival stages and Carl’s historic Space Ibiza residency. When the opportunity arose to collaborate again, neither hesitated.

“In today’s darkness of techno I wanted to create something more jovial. So the original is quite an easy track to enjoy, it’s very bubbly and bouncy. But with this new version Nicole has made a very dark twisted re-imagining. It’s now very much epic techno – which you have to play from beginning to end to get the full experience. It takes you on a journey, and it just gets stronger and stronger with its twists and turns.

Nicole is a genius. She’s able to take my original concept which might not be totally the kind of record she would make, but she likes a challenge and she set the bar high and ran with it. I think she’s done a wonderful job with this one.” – Carl Cox

“When Carl asked me to collaborate again, this time on one of his new album cuts, I knew this track had to deliver that high-powered energy and rhythm that we always bring when we perform. ‘HOW IT MAKES YOU FEEL’ has been absolutely smashing dance floors worldwide, so I am excited to finally unleash this monster tune!” – Nicole Moudaber

Ignited by an internal combustion engine fueled by raw emotion, Nicole Moudaber is one of the techno world’s most iconic and hardworking contemporary artists. The global reach of her MOOD empire has led to Nicole curating In The Mood festival stages at the world’s biggest events: Electric Daisy Carnival (New York, Las Vegas & Orlando), California’s Escape, and BPM Festival (Mexico & Portugal) and she’s played every clubbing institution possible including DC-10 in Ibiza, London superclub fabric, New York’s Output, and a long list of clubs across multiple continents including North America, South America, Europe and Asia.

From the birth of dance music culture to the global force that electronic music is today, Carl has been an innovator at the forefront every step of the way, ‘Electronic Generations’ is the next stage in this journey and the beginning of an exciting new chapter as an album recording artist with BMG.

Showcasing a fusion of Carl’s unique live electronic sound, the epic 17-track ‘Electronic Generations’ is the result of Carl’s mind blowing hybrid-live sets which he’s been successfully showcasing over the last few years. Anyone that’s been to one of these shows will have witnessed Carl in his element, remixing, producing and creating music while he plays. With the first lockdown Carl finally had time to focus on putting this sound on record, and spent months in his Melbourne studio creating music and experimenting as a live electronic artist. The result is Carl Cox at his best, a tour de force which you can feel he has given everything to. It’s an insight into the heart and soul of a hugely established and much-loved artist who 30 years into his career, is still keen to take bold risks and create something entirely new.

“I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to share this album. As a live artist and a DJ I get to play all over the world and to see people enjoying the shared experience of being together and dancing. I’ve pulled together all the elements that I’ve learned from watching those crowds, added my sound and tried to bring you a true electronic music experience.” – Carl Cox

Carl Cox has always been at the top of his game. A veteran of acid house and a pioneer of British rave culture embedded deep within the fabric of electronic music history, his ever evolving sound and relentless energy means that he remains one of the most in demand DJs on the planet. A musical ambassador, a dance music pioneer, label owner, three deck wizard, King of Ibiza – you name it, Carl’s been there and done it, never losing sight of his passions – playing music, breaking tunes and celebrating life. 2021 saw Carl release his first ever autobiography Oh Yes Oh Yes which topped charts and won press acclaim everywhere.

‘Electronic Generations’ is out September 16th via BMG. The digital version of the album also comes with a second volume of pre-remixes, including the new track ‘How It Makes You Feel’ with Nicole Moudaber, ‘Deep Space X’ with Juan Atkins and ‘Speed Trials on Acid’ with Fatboy Slim.

    • Armin van Buuren and HI-LO collab on ‘Now Love Will Begin’ armin-van-buuren-hilo-feature-oz-edm

      Trance icon Armin van Buuren and techno virtuoso HI-LO join forces on one of 2024’s most exciting collaborationss. Introducing ‘Now Love Will Begin,’ the genre-bending collaboration between trance icon Armin van Buuren and techno virtuoso HI-LO. Premiered on “A State of Trance” and a standout track included in Armin van Buuren and HI-LO’s much-talked-about B2B set at A State of Trance Rotterdam,  ’Now Love Will Begin’ is a groundbreaking fusion of techno’s pulsating rhythms and trance’s euphoric melodies. The song takes listeners on an exhilarating journey through the realms of both genres, igniting dance floors and hearts alike. “HI-LO (Oliver Heldens) and I just click so well. It was apparent during our back-to-back live set at A State of Trance in Rotterdam, and many others were able to see it as well when we connected on stage again in Miami during the Ultra Music Festival. I’m so happy that this natural flow between us extends to our studio work as well. We’re both so passionate about dance music, and I’m having such a great time being producer-nerdy in the studio with him. ‘Now Love Will Begin’ is what came out of it, and I’m so excited for the world to hear what we cooked up together!,” Van Buuren says. “In the last half a year, it’s been awesome working with Armin on several collabs and preparing for our b2b sets. Probably the highlight so far was when all of that came together during our b2b at A State of Trance Rotterdam, and even though the b2b set at A State of Trance Miami didn’t happen in the end due to severe weather conditions, we still had a lot of fun preparing for that set, and in general, it’s been lovely to connect on a deeper level. Our first collab, ‘Now Love Will Begin,’ definitely captures that spirit; I think it’s a meaningful banger of a tune that crosses boundaries, uniting the worlds of techno, uplifting trance, and psy-trance. Enjoy! :),” HI-LO adds. Get ready to experience the ultimate union of techno and trance, where love and music intertwine to create pure sonic ecstasy.

    • ARTBAT Release ‘Take Off’ Debut Collab With Armin van Buuren armin-artbat

      Electronic Powerhouse ARTBAT Enlist Trance Pioneer Armin van Buuren for Debut Collaboration ‘Take Off.’ Sparked by a chat backstage at Armin van Buuren’s flagship trance festival, A State of Trance, back in 2023, electronic music powerhouse duo ARTBAT have teamed up with the trance pioneer for a trance-meets-techno collaboration: ‘Take Off,’ released today on Armada Music. Merging the pulsating bassline and rolling rhythm, characteristic of an ARTBAT production, with Armin van Buuren’s signature trance builds, melodic chords, and driving bass, ‘Take Off’ skillfully infuses the Ukrainian pair’s distinctive output with the Dutchman’s expertise, resulting in a fresh and dynamic cross-genre debut linkup. “Collaborating with Armin van Buuren, who is such a legend in the dance game, has been really special,” ARTBAT says. “We can’t believe this collaboration hasn’t happened before now, and we’re very happy that Armin asked us to do a collaboration, which has brought something so special to our sound. It’s been enjoyable to explore and push the boundaries of both our sounds. It’s an honor to have worked alongside such a groundbreaker in his lane.” “ARTBAT’s exceptional performance at last year’s ‘A State of Trance’ festival sparked immense inspiration in me,” Armin van Buuren adds. “Even though I was deep into album mode and immersed in a sound that is quite different from ‘Take Off,’ their music prompted a lot of ideas. I thought of the ‘Space Case’ concept and how its theme, spoken word, and trancey stabs would chime in with the unique ARTBAT sound. This collaboration feels like it’s been a long time coming, and I’m thrilled it’s now seeing the light of day.”  ‘Take Off’ is available now via Armada Music.
