Carl Cox will spin vinyl for the first time in 10 years for last residency party

"This music has been my life and I want to share it one last time at Space"

Carl Cox's final Music Is Revolution date at Space Ibiza is nearing. He brings his 15-year residency to an end on September 20 and to mark the occasion, he'll be taking vinyl back to the Playa d'en Bossa club.

Apparently 2006 was the last time he played wax there and the DJ wants to play records representing his time at the club, possibly introducing a whole load of old music that this generation's ravers may not have heard.

Speaking about the residency closing party, he said: "I wanted to take things back and pay homage to all those years at Space spinning records. I want to show respect to those older tunes, dig out some of my old vinyl and play them alongside new tunes. A lot of the crowd probably won't have even heard them before, so it's a way of showing the music is still relevant."

As if anyone was doubting his ability, he sees it as an opportunity to prove he's still got it when it comes to mixing wax.

"I thought it was a fitting way to say goodbye. I also want people to know I can still DJ with vinyl and make the house rock. This music has been my life and I want to share it one last time at Space."

With Space closing this year as Ushuaïa's owners take over, we compiled a scrapbook of Coxy's years at Space.

Coxy plays all night in Space's Discoteca for The Final Chapter of Music Is Revolution, with tINI, DJ Sneak, Nic Fanciulli and more also playing throughout the club on the night, and he's on the line-up for Space's closing on October 2.

Listen to the In Session he did for us earlier this year below.
