Carl Cox New Album

EMMS Publicity’s 10th birthday bonanza.

Now, we’re nothing if not generous souls here.

EMMS Publicity reaches the grand old age of 10 in early October and, to kick off our celebrations, we’re giving away a very special one-off remix of Francis Neve’s classic first single ‘Brian’s Drying Up’ – by rising (self-proclaimed) “goodstep” star Bangatang.

Yes you’ll be able to download the remix ABSOLUTELY FREE from our Soundcloud for 24 hours on Monday October 3. But first, have a sneak preview here:

After Tuesday October 4, the remix will only again be available (for dollar) as part of Francis Neve’s forthcoming Dance Around The Fires EP (released late November). So grab it while you can!

Oh, and because it’s our 10th birthday, indulge us, if you will, as we unveil 10 fascinating facts about EMMS… *deep breath*

1. The company was established in 2001 by the then 26 year old Stephen Emms. First clients? Dance icons-du-jour Paul Oakenfold, Dave Pearce and Timo Maas.
2. We launched debut releases by Lethal Bizzle, David Guetta, Jay Sean, Eric Prydz – and, in 2006, a rather lovely 19 year old called Florence Welch.
3. Other international stars we’ve worked with include Sia, Kosheen, Jill Scott, Chrissie Hynde, Fergie, Hall & Oates, Pete Tong and Carl Cox.
4. Not to mention dozens of labels and brands, including One Little Indian, BMG, Sony, Ministry Of Sound, Three Six Zero Group, Southern Fried and Rob Da Bank’s Sunday Best.
5. In 2007 EMMS Publicity was the sole UK PR company selected to feature in the best-selling DIY manual “The Guerilla Guide to the Music Business”…
6. …and in 2011 we launched our artist management division, imaginitively titled EMMS Artist Management
7. We like food too. And therefore work with the odd restaurant or two.
8. We like a tipple – in moderation, of course – and have launched or worked with lots of boozy venues like KOKO, Barrio, Guanabara, Charlotte Street Blues.
9. In addition to his PR responsibilities, Stephen also writes about the travel & the arts in The Guardian and elsewhere.
10. In addition to his PR responsibilities, account director Steve Rose is a dab hand at the banjo – and, as you can see above, draws a pretty impressive birthday cake.

So there we have it. Sorry if we went on a bit. Enjoy the track. We’ll tweet again on October 3 to remind you to download it.

And watch this space as we’ll be premiering Francis Neve’s new single here next week. Over and out.

Family Guy – The new Carl Cox single – Out now!

And it begins…. The first part of Carl’s new album campaign kicked off this week, with the release of his first new single in over 6 years.

Family Guy, out yesterday, is the first track taken from the upcoming All Roads Lead to the Dancefloor (now available to pre-order) It’s classic Carl territory – a mammoth (10-minute) slice of icy-cool techno, already a fan favourite after Carl added an early version to his website last year.

“It was inspired by certain key changes in the Family Guy show’s theme tune,” explains Carl. “Ever since I put it online, I’ve had so much feedback and so many requests for it to be released. It had to be the first single.”

And here it is. Listen here and download here

Included with the original Deep House Rerub Mix, comes the ‘Back To Acid Mix’, two mixes from Layo & Bushwacka! and a mix from Jon Rundell.

The album ‘All Roads Lead to the Dancefloor’ is out on August 1. To pre-order visit

Oh my…it’s the brand new mixer App from Carl Cox, and it’s FREE

More free stuff today, this time courtesy of lovely Carl Cox, the world’s nicest DJ. If you’ve ever dreamed of the big fella spinning at your party, well, dream no longer – kind of – as today he launches his brand new mixer App – ‘Carl Cox Is Playing In My House,’ bringing his DJ skills to any party, anywhere in the world, anytime. And it’s completely FREE!

And Carl’s generosity doesn’t end there. Oh no. The Carl Cox Mixer app – available for iPhone, iPad and iPad Touch – comes out alongside his first new track in six years – “Family Guy,” straight from Carl‘s upcoming album “All Roads Lead To The Dancefloor.”

The exclusive ‘Family Guy’ download is classic Carl territory – a slice of icy-cool techno and deep house, already a fan favourite after Carl added an early version to his website last year. “It was inspired by certain key changes in the Family Guy show’s theme tune,” explains Carl. “Ever since I put it online, I’ve had so much feedback and so many requests for it to be released. It had to be the first single, and what better way to launch the app!”

The mixer app is a collaboration between Carl Cox and Musicsoft Arts, creators of DJ Mixer, the top selling music mixing application on the iPhone and on the iPad. Launched TODAY, June 30th, this new party app is packed with music hand-picked by Carl Cox and played back in an automated DJ set from Carl himself (well, his digital clone).

How It Works:

Users can take over and mix the tracks themselves with two CDJ decks and an all-powerful mixing station at their fingertips. Carl’s DJ booth comes complete with two CDJ decks, music mixer, an array of mix effects and features, and direct access to the Intec Digital catalogue. More DJ features include looping, sound effects, real-time time stretching for tempo change without affecting song’s pitch, low-latency headphone monitoring, pitch change – everything a DJ could need. Users can also record their DJ sets simply by touching a Record button.

Another feature, Music Video Party, turns the app into a visual party – videos to the music on app can be viewed on the device or on a big screen connected to the device.

The App is offered as a free download on Apple’s App Store that comes with 3 new tracks from Intec Digital, including two exclusive new tracks – “Family Guy” and “Twisted Machine”, an unreleased collaboration from Carl Cox and Jon Rundell.

Additional tracks from Intec Digital can be purchased and downloaded directly onto the App for a complete Carl Cox interactive DJ set. Tracks include dance floor bangers from Robert Babicz, Jon Rundell, Nicole Moudaber, Yousef, and more.

Here’s a couple of videos of the App in action:

CARL COX confirms exclusive USB Format for new album

It’s proving to be a busy old year for our favourite superstar DJ. We’ve already told you about his landmark anniversary at Space this summer (The Revolution – 10 Years at Space kicks off July 5th) but now, on top of that, he’s confirmed he’ll be releasing a brand new artist album – All Roads Lead to the Dancefloor, over three different phases, starting on August 1.

Recorded over the last year in Carl’s Melbourne studio the new album showcases a range of styles including Vocal House, Dubstep, Drum & Bass, Latin and of course Techno. “This album is aimed purely at the dancefloor,” says Carl. “Every track should be a winner too as I’ve been road-testing and remixing them to make sure they really do work.”

Unbelievably it’s been nearly 6 years since his last album, so this is a pretty big deal, especially as Carl’s chosen to present it on never-before-seen USB technology – offering far more than a conventional album. “You pay the one price for the one product,” explains Carl. “And 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.”

Confused? Intrigued? Here’s how it works:

The USB interface is essentially a website home page but most features will not require it to be connected to the web, making it usable on the train, in flight, in remote locations etc. Buyers will be able to stream, as well as download the album & remixes, plus they’ll have access to the entire Intec Digital catalogue, access to Carl’s latest four Global radio shows, exclusive videos & Carl Cox news and more – and all for just £20.

With this new USB interface new content can be added to the USB sticks, even after they have been purchased – a user simply plugs in, the USB will connect automatically to its CMS location and update within seconds. So, being able to add content at any stage down the USB’s life makes it an album that essentially lives on – its life is extended through new exciting content that people will want to plug in again for. These content additions are set to include a vast range of continually added features including access to additional album remixes, exclusive sets recorded from Space Ibiza, video interviews & behind the scenes video footage from Carl on tour, and what really stands out – access to LIVE (Realtime) video streams from Carl’s gigs. Intec have also worked along side Pioneer on this project, giving the budding DJ an insight into the future of DJing with USB sticks – videos on the stick will include tutorial, tips & tricks with Carl, behind the scenes at a sound check, Pioneer Rekordbox tutorial, plus more.

As Carl explains: “I’m asking people to buy the USB, and I’m promising that with the singles, the videos, the actual album, plus all the extras – they won’t be disappointed. I didn’t want to just put it online and let that be that. I’ve spent too long on it, and it’s too important to me to be degraded that way. I wanted to do something special with this release, something really forward thinking, and I think we’ve achieved it.”

The campaign will see the music behind ‘All Roads lead to the Dancefloor’ released along side its many extras over three separate phases:

Phase 1

The USB will be available from August 1st following the first single release, ‘Family Guy,’ downloadable from July 4th – a 10-minute slice of classic techno. Family Guy comes with massive remixes from Layo & Bushwacka! & Jon Rundell, which will be available on the USB.

On August 1st, fans can enjoy the first taster of the album, with 12 brand new tracks becoming available. This includes cuts that will be on the final album, along with B-sides and exclusives.

Phase 2

On September 26th owners of the USB will receive the second single, a vocal dub step mix of a track called ‘Nexus’ complete with remixes and video followed by the final and complete album on October 17th.

October 31st the third single, ‘Chemistry’ (plus remixes) will be released, along with another video.

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. Buyers will be able to follow Carl at rehearsals, on the road and on stage as the album gets performed live to thousands across 5 cities in Australia – the first ever live Carl Cox tour. “We’ve already trialled it a couple of times here in Melbourne and I’m pleased to say it worked,” says Carl. “These shows will be a mix of both DJing and performing, which will be a challenge. But I’ve never taken the easy option. I take pride in that.”

The first single, Family Guy is out July 4, with the USB and album taster following on August 1.
