The book is described as “a remarkably candid and intimate portrait of an artist who has never lost touch with the people who share the dancefloor with him”, telling “his story, and the story of how British club culture took over the world”.

A number of peers in dance music have shared commendations of Carl Cox.

“People use the term legend far too easily for my liking but Carl is legend personified,” said Grooverider.

“Carl has always been my favourite. He is the complete DJ, also the DJs’ DJ. Records come to life when he plays them, rooms come to life when he rocks them. His enthusiasm is infectious, his commitment complete.” said Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim.

“Carl is one of the few true pioneers of UK club culture internationally. He has opened the door to so many DJs and inspired so many, including me,” said Gilles Peterson.

Oh Yes, Oh Yes! comes out on August 19 this year, and is being published by White Rabbit. Pricings are: hardback: £20; eBook: £10.99; and audio £21.99.

Speaking on the book, Carl Cox said: "I was looking for a publishing partner who would understand how important it is for me to share my story and insights to a global audience but who could also understand and respect how I connect with people on an individual level. White Rabbit gets it. They not only have the clout and backing of a big player, but the personal touch that I need in order to fully share my life on and off the dancefloor."
