Carl Cox is a techno DJ from the County of Lancashire in Northwest England, who rose to prominence as a particularly talented DJ on England's hardcore/rave scene of the mid-1980s. Since then, Cox has become a regular fixture at some of the United Kingdom's hottest clubs, in addition to setting up and running two distinct record labels. Carl Cox's reputation as a world-class DJ was set in stone in 1997 when DJ Magazine, for the first time, named him the number one DJ in the world.
After relocating from his native Puerto Rico to Chicago in the early 1980s, Carlos Sosa discovered house music and immediately found himself hooked. Absorbing all the house culture the city had to offer, Sosa frequented club nights and dug through the records of house pioneers, eventually donning the name DJ Sneak and beginning to produce his own breed of house music. The result has been a funk-infused style of hard-hitting disco house, which DJ Sneak has continued to create after almost three decades of performing. Calling himself the "house gangster," DJ Sneak now owns his own record label and can still be found DJing at many international festivals.
Combining the four-on-the-floor pulse of house music with the analog synths and vintage sound of Detroit techno, Joris Voorn is a widely-known DJ in his native country of Amsterdam. He began DJing in 1997, captivated by the electronic genres he'd been exposed to for the first time just a couple years prior. His original tracks in the early 2000s caught the attention of some prominent DJs such as Carl Craig and Laurent Garnier thanks to their slick production and bouncy mix of techno and house. Voorn released Future History, his debut album, in 2004 and has since continued to perform throughout Europe and beyond.
