Audio leader HARMAN hosts talk about Cox’s passion for American muscle cars, the sound of a V8, and the importance of in-car audio
Online PR News – 15-October-2020 – Karlsbad, Germany – One of the world’s best-known and best-loved DJs, Carl Cox is in the hot seat for the latest edition of Audio Talks, a podcast by audio leader HARMAN, available to listen now on Podigee and all major podcast platforms.
A pioneer and champion of techno, dance and acid house music, ‘Coxy’ discusses his current music projects and delves into his other passions – cars, motorbikes and racing. The producer’s interest has led him to owning a motorbike restoration business, running his own race team – Carl Cox Motorsport, and competing himself in races and hill climbs behind the wheel of his historic Shelby Mustang GT350.
In this episode of Audio Talks, find out more about Cox’s 235mph run at Sydney Dragway, his love for the ‘symphonic sound’ of a V8 engine, how simulator racing has kept him busy during lockdown, and why his 1966 Ford Cortina Lotus Mk1 is one of the most prized cars in his collection. As official associate for the 2021 London Motor Show, he also hints at what visitors can expect at the redesigned event next summer.
The podcast, hosted by professional music journalist, presenter and broadcaster Oisin Lunny, dives into all of these topics and also discusses the evolution of in-car audio, the importance of music during car journeys, and why Curtis Mayfield’s ‘Move on up’, played on an 8-track, is so important to Cox.
Audio Talks is produced by audio leader HARMAN, which has leading in-car audio brands Harman Kardon, JBL, AKG, Infinity, Lexicon, Mark Levinson and Revel, as well as Bang & Olufsen and Bowers & Wilkins. More than 50 million vehicles on the road today are equipped with HARMAN audio and connected car systems.
