Carl Cox Announces Return To Ibiza

Carl Cox's final season at Space was one of the biggest stories of last year, but after that final marathon session, Coxys future on the White Isle was looking uncertain. Fears have been allayed, as Carl Cox announced he'll return for two dates at San Antonio's Privilege. Announcing the dates on Friday, Carl said; "I’m really looking forward to getting back to Ibiza and kicking off these special events with my awesome team from Space: Dave Browning, Eóin Smyth and the Game Over crew. And boy, have we got some parties lined up for you this year. Starting with two parties at Privilege, I will be bringing my PURE festival vibes from Australia to the Main Room with a full techno and house line-up. I cannot wait to rock this club. See you on the dancefloor.

Flying Lotus was quick to defend his work stating on Twitter that "only like 20 people of 400 who walked out". The film, called Kuso, is about a series of events after a devastating earthquake hots LA and features funk legend George Clinton.
