Summary

From warm-up DJ at the birth of acid house to global main stage headline artist today, Carl Cox continues to inspire and influence audiences and artists. Carl has been everything from a recording artist and producer to label owner, radio DJ and broadcaster. He is still all these things and much more with his star shining brighter than ever. Oh Yes, Oh Yes! tells the story, in his own words, of the man known as 'The Three Deck Wizard' on the rave scene before evolving into 'The People's Choice' and the King of Ibiza, a DJ and artist who remains at the very top of his game and continues to innovate and thrill music lovers on the world's biggest stages.

Starting off as a shelf-stacker, grass-cutter and scaffolder in the south London suburbs, Carl's phenomenal talents as a DJ grew out of a love of music nurtured in his parents' front room. In Oh Yes, Oh Yes!, he takes us to the heart of the party, from the UK rave scene to Burning Man and from Ibiza to Melbourne, with a career that, in many ways, is the story of club culture and an inspiration to all those who choose to follow their dreams while turning him into a living legend along the way. Oh Yes, Oh Yes! is a remarkably candid and intimate portrait of an artist who has never lost touch with the people who share the dance floor with him.

Critic reviews

"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." (Gilles Peterson)

"Carl Cox wrote the script of what it means to be a DJ." (David Guetta) 

"People use the term legend far too easily for my liking, but Carl is legend personified." (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." (Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim)

Great insight to the worlds biggest DJ

This book is one of the best I have listened to. It goes right back from when Carl started off his career and how he continues to grow to this day, From the content to the narrator it’s an easy listen that goes into great depths. It gets 5 out of 5 from me.

Oh dear, oh dear.

I love Carl Cox, he’s still the embodiment of a living legend in dance music circles. I was really looking forward to the release of this book, but ultimately it comes as a disappointment. Maybe if Carl had recorded the audiobook himself it might have been slightly less of a painful listen. As it stands, it’s just hours and hours of the same irritating voice retelling 30 years of dance music events that almost always finish with “I absolutely smashed it.”

The book is essentially just a detailed run down of music events Carl has been involved with. He occasionally opens up to give an insight into his personal and emotional world, but it’s mostly “…and then I absolutely smashed it.” It gets tiresome and repetitive very quickly in terms of an entertaining listen.

I really wanted to love this book, but there have been several autobiographies written by DJs and players in the dance music scene that have been so much more insightful and entertaining.

So so disappointed...

I had been looking forward to this book for a very long time. Carl is an absolute legend in the house music era phenomenon. But what a disappointment. If you want to hear constant name dropping throughout and over an hour of top lists of his favourite tracks/bands/cars and motorbikes and other irrelevant name dropping stuff then this is the book for you. If not, I wouldn't bother. This book gets very boring, very quickly. Oh no, Oh no.

lightweight storytelling, lack of insight

When authors don't read their own story, it immediately feels fake. Sorry, it just does. Especially when things, such as famous DJ names, are not pronounced correctly.

Respect to Carl, he is an amazing DJ but this book is, for the most part, just a collection of name drops and tour dates.

The journey but not the Man.

If you want to know his journey then this is the book for you. If you want to know the man, other than his absolute love and dedication to music, then there are relatively few sentences which give insight in to Carl Cox the man rather than Carl Cox the DJ. That said an interesting book and for people like me, who remember seeing him live 25 years ago, it's a good way to bring back some happy memories. Long may he reign.

Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes!!!

Oh wow thanks for sharing the journey Carl. Was mega disappointed to not hear Carl with his iconic voice, but the recording author did an amazing job and really spoke with Carl’s passion.

Anyone who was there or is currently wanting to know the real history of what went down will enjoy this book.

Gutted to not have been featured with my two meetings with Carl, when I thought this guy is the nicest DJ I’ve ever met until you realise he is the real deal to all his millions of fans and followers worldwide. Your genuineness is true all over.

A big thank you for what you created, touched my life in so many ways.

Long may it continue. See you at the playa.

nothing to see here but smashed it!

Carl is a beaut of a man but there is not much story to hear here. Nothing intriguing for anyone who doesn't want more than to remember things from the past that they may have experienced or came across. No major stories and general stories largely run of the mill for a superstar DJ. The narrator is perfect and if he wasn't I would not have stuck through the book. Shame as Carl is smashing life and smashing nights out. I snuck to a club to see him when I was 17, if you don't like dance music, don't bother listening to this (if you do, you aint missing much). Sorry Carl, love ya!
