Carl Cox may have put his Space Ibiza days behind him, but the legendary DJ has not be resting on his laurels. He's set up his own festival in Australia, headlined numerous festivals across Europe and has just announced a new label.

ASW or Awesome Soundwave will be helmed by Carl and will focus on live electronic artists. The first release will be from label co-founder Christoper Coe, AKA Digital Primate. The release will be an album from Coe, called MNTNS of SLNC, takes inspiration from the Irishman's home of County Mayo - a misty and mountainous landscape.

The first track from MNTNS, "Headland" is out now and can be streamed above. Eagle-eared readers might even remember it from Carl's Essential Mix earlier this year.

Talking about the label, Carl said:


"The idea is to bring together a whole plethora of amazing producers and would-be live acts in the realms of electronic music and bring them to the forefront of where we are to take the music into the future. My idea was to create a label where artists who actually can make their music live, and perform their music live, have a stable where they can be themselves, be able to create the music without any boundaries and to feel free in the sense of releasing music without prejudice in any way, shape or form." - Carl Cox
