He hasn’t gone away you know, and is still very much a force to be reckoned with on the white Isle and globally. One door close’s in Space and many others open with offers for his indisputable service to dance music culture, with him now finding space at the worlds biggest club, ‘Privilege’ for a couple of nights over the Balearic summer.
So what can people expect from Carl’s ‘Pure’ nights at Privilege?
”You’re going to get a great soundsystem, music played by great DJs and all you’re going to get is a minimalistic ideal of what we used to do back in the day when we used to do warehouse parties. This is what I really, really want to get people to understand at the end of the day: that you don’t pull your phone out because there’s fireworks going off. You don’t pull your phone out because there are three DJs standing on top of the turntables or the CDJs or even their laptop and telling people to jump, jump, jump. We’re not doing any of that stuff. We’re stripping it down and getting people to hear raw unadulterated techno and house music. If you’re not into it, I would just say “don’t come down, don’t bother, because when you walk through the door and you’re gonna hear a bassline. You’re gonna hear DJs really playing from the heart and soul, they have to. It’s a big room, there’s no messing around at Privilege. You’ve got to give it to them. Go hard or go home. It’s no fancy night out.”
After playing at Space for 20 years Carl knows he cannot be complacent and said ” I have no clue what’s going to happen at this club! All I know is I have great DJs playing great music at this club and I’m supporting that”
