The eminent DJ Carl Cox will perform
a short string of dates next month before the mix album he recorded live
at a recent Chicago show is released July 25.
Mixed Live, the first installment of a new series by Moonshine
Records, was recorded using several microphones strategically placed in
the Crobar nightclub.
"I've put many CDs out there with great DJs, but you can't create the
atmosphere in a club," Cox said recently. "So we [recorded] it totally
live with the crowd behind it."
Mixed Live features 22 house anthems, including
COLOR="#003163">Timo Maas COLOR="#003163">Smith & Selway COLOR="#003163">Mark Williams
COLOR="#003163">Timo Maas' "Notrance,"

COLOR="#003163">Mark Williams' "Altered States."
