Following the release of his first solo music in two years, a techno track called ‘PURE (El Rancho Mix)’, Carl Cox has returned with a remix for Kenneth Bager and Jez Phunk on Armin van Buuren’s Armada music.
On the remix, Coxy transforms ‘Farmacia (Homage to Frankfurt)’ from tech house to a driving, club-focused techno roller, with deep bass and thunderous drums.
Speaking about the remix, Coxy said: “‘Farmacia (Homage to Frankfurt)’ was already a work of art when it came to me. All I could do was paint a picture that I believed would complement the original track. I added in strings and built on the drums and emotion of the track to bring out the best of what was already there. I wanted to turn it into something classic and Techno-ish, but I also wanted it to be the most beautiful thing I could construct out of something that was already beautiful.”

The techno DJ recently spoke in an interview with Sky News about the resurgance of illegal raves and parties in the UK, blaming it on the government and the lack of a clear timeline on clubs and festivals reopening.
Cox told Sky News social distancing means nightlife just cannot operate as normal. “These illegal parties are basically done out of frustration,” he said. “Just done out of showing it’s our right to do what we want to do. It’s not the answer to this.”
