Cox grew up in Oldham, Lancashire, before attending Glastonbury High Boys secondary modern school on Glastonbury Road in Morden. Cox began his career as a hardcore and Rave DJ in the mid-1980s. He was named the “Three Deck Wizard” after playing on 3 turntables simultaneously at the Second Summer of Love in 1988.
He has performed at clubs such as The Eclipse, Edge, Shelly’s, Sterns Nightclub, Heaven, Sir Henry’s in Cork, Ireland and Angels and The Haçienda, as well as raves for Fantazia, Dreamscape and Amnesia House. He now spearheads two record labels, Intec Records and 23rd Century Records.

Of his many DJ highlights, he also managed to cram in the Millenium NY twice by flying and cheating the timezones. He has had shows on Kiss FM and was a monthly live, global resident for Radio One’s Essential Mix in 1998-99, as well as over a decades worth of Ibiza live mixes broadcast from Club Space.
