Music producer and world famous Carl Cox has a few surprises up his sleeve for his newest album, All Roads Lead To The Dance Floor. The album was released through his own independent label Intec Digital this past August. It includes a various range of styles across its 20+ tracks ranging from Vocal House, Bass Latin, Drum, Dubstep, and aside from Techno.
But if your planning on ordering the album and expecting a normal CD….Don’t. The entire USB package is released in three phases so you can look forward to a whole new set of tracks and features every month! The whole concept of how Cox did this album is incredible. Cox describes it best himself, “The USB will not only give you the album, but it’ll also be your key to everything I do in the next 12 months or so,” the popular British DJ says.
Phase 1, which has been available since August 1st contained the first single release, ‘Family Guy’ which is a 10-minute set of classic techno. Also on August 1st, fans enjoyed the first taster of the album, with 12 brand new tracks becoming available.
On September 26th, for Phase 2, those who purchased the USB will receive the second single. It will be a vocal dub step mix of a track called ‘Nexus’ with remixes and video. This will follow the final and complete album on October 17th. October 31st the third single, ‘Chemistry’ (plus remixes) will be released, along with another video.
Lastly one of the most exciting parts of the album is Phase 3. Throughout the end of this year on through to next, the USB will be updated with ongoing LIVE footage of Carl & his band touring. You will be able to follow Carl at rehearsals, on the road and on stage as he showcases the rest of the album off live to thousands across 5 cities in Australia – the first ever live Carl Cox tour.
Another great feature is you don’t have to be connected to the web all the time to hear it. You can use it while on a train, in a car, in a remote area or even on a plane.When you plug in the USB, you’re automatically connected to the CMS location. Here you can stream and download Carl’s album and remixes and update the USB yourself. You will also have access to his global radio shows, exclusive videos, news and all other things Carl Cox.
Sounds like quite the bundle to me. I’m sure if you were there for his exciting set in the Sunday School tent at Electric Zoo 2011 a few weeks ago, your going to want to get on your hands on this!
