Carl Cox has announced the end to another era as he bids farewell to his Global Radio show this week. Consisting of 722 episodes over nearly the past 16 years, Global is one of the most renowned dance music shows in history. With a dedicated worldwide audience of over 200,000 on Mixcloud, the show became a staple in the world of house and techno. Starting off this final episode, Cox is in awe of the musical revolution that this show has created.
“I can’t believe I’m saying this for the final time ever: welcome to Global. Yes, as you all know by now, after almost 16 years it’s time to put down the radio mic. This episode I wanted to put together a very special mix of my own guilty pleasures of records that I wanted to share with you…which hopefully you will remember for years and years to come.”
Just last year Cox announced the end to his 15 year residency at Space Ibiza. With that news and now with the ending of Global, fans are wondering if he is slowly working his way into retirement. However, he is still touring for much of this year and hitting many major festivals this upcoming season. He’s not ready to leave the scene quite yet, but he made sure that this last episode of Global was one for the books. You can find some of Cox’s favorite original tracks as well as Skudge, Landlord, Snna, Omid 16B and more.
The two hour show is available on Mixcloud now – you can stream it below.
