BRIDGETOWN, 01 March, – During the month of April, Illusions Entertainment will host two events for global House music icon Carl Cox, who returns to Barbados to showcase his talents as an international DJ.
Quoted by fans and leading international music magazines as “the best DJ in the world’ Carl Cox has been part of Britain’s dance scene from the days of disco right through to the global clubland of the new millennium.
Referred to as ‘musical ambassador’, Cox, who was born in the UK to Bajan parents, began his musical journey at the age of eight and became a professional DJ in his early teens. Since then he has excelled as a producer, artist, re-mixer, radio DJ and businessman. As anyone who has met him will attest, Carl Cox is the living embodiment of the perfect gentleman and progressive music pioneer.
Carl has numerous shows lined up at some of the best clubs and festivals around the world in 2012, including a headline performance at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, which attracts 150,000 fans. He has also celebrated an astounding ten-year residency at the club that was voted #1 Club in The World in 2011 ‘Space’ in Ibiza where he and his management group have built up his weekly residency into one of the island’s most popular nights. His Barbados show however, is one that is very close to his heart as he considers this his homecoming performance, especially in light of the fact that many of his family members will likely be in the audience, including his mum and dad who both reside in Barbados.
In addition to his live performances, Carl Cox also hosts a global radio show which continues to break records, with over 12-million listeners worldwide and syndicated across 60 terrestrial FM, Satellite and Digital Audio Broadcasting stations throughout 35 countries, making him one of the most important broadcasters on the planet!
With all of this Carl is quoted as saying “after the Ibiza seasons, after all the festivals I’ve done, after my own events, albums and remixing, the story still continues in a massive way – there’s so much more still to come”.
Hosts Illusions Entertainment, spearheaded by Managing Director Craig Corrie, are the recognised leaders of the dance music movement in Barbados, having recently presented The Music Factory, Barbados’ first Pop, Dance and House music festival, which has been receiving rave reviews in Barbados and beyond. Mr Corrie who is an avid dance music fan is thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the achievements of yet another Bajan, who is perhaps not as well known within the Caribbean.
Illusions Entertainment will be working closely with world-renowned DJ/producer Nicole Moudaber, who is well known among the world’s DJ elite and the driving force behind the ‘Homecoming’ event. After a youth spent in Africa and the Middle East, Nicole exploded onto the New York club scene and was quickly identified by Carl Cox as exactly the kind of fresh talent he wanted to have playing at his weekly nights at Space in Ibiza, where Nicole has now appeared regularly alongside Carl for three seasons.
Craig and Nicole’s efforts will be supported by the phenomenal design team at Barbados’ leading special event design house Events Unusual, whose Design Director Emma Corrie has previously created extraordinary settings for Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, Gloria Estefan and other musical icons and promises to deliver an impressive setting for the upcoming performance.
Fans of dance music can expect to be entertained by local House music DJs Paul DeCoteau and Abraham Norville before Carl Cox takes the stage.
Illusions Entertainment will also host a dinner reception at one of the island’s top restaurants Cin Cin for a limited number of guests, including representatives from the Barbados Government and the Barbados Tourism Authority. The BTA continues to support events which attract tourists to the island and reservations have already been received via Caribbean Events Hub from persons across the region who are planning to attend the Carl Cox weekend in Barbados.
