The simple truth about Carl Cox is that, according to many DJs who know him or who have played alongside him, he simply loves what he does. He loves a good party, he loves to dance, and he has absolutely no ego.

This is his simple recipe for success that is oddly hard to find in an industry fraught with clout chasers and egoists. 

If more people followed the ideologies of this man, the world would be a better place.
