You can't deny that Carl Cox is a national treasure. That's precisely why there's a petition to get him an MBE.
He's dedicated himself to dance music for over two decades, notably Ibiza where he finishes his Space residency this year after 15 years at the club. With his Music Is Revolution party drawing the curtains at the end of the summer, London festival South West Four is pushing for him to get the Queen's recognition.
SW4, where Cox plays on August 28, says: "Carl Cox is a national treasure. A global icon. A living legend for fans of electronic music from across the world. Today we reach out to all music lovers and ask them to please sign this petition for Carl to be nominated as an MBE in the 2017 New Year’s Honours list.”
