Carl Cox announces first album in a decade 'Electronic Generations', shares new track

"In today's darkness of techno I wanted to create something more jovial..."

Techno legend Carl Cox has unveiled details of his new album ‘Electronic Generations’, his first record in over 10 years, out September 16.

The forthcoming 17-track project marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the DJ and offers an insight into the heart and soul of an artist who 30 years into his career, is still keen to take risks and create something entirely new.

“I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to share this album,” says Carl about the record: “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.”

With the album announcement also comes a brand new single ‘How It Makes You Feel’, featuring fellow artist and long-time friend Nicole Moudaber.

Speaking about the track, Carl states: “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,” he adds.
