Should I sleep in or start my day early? Most of the time, I find myself waking up in a hotel room on the opposite side of the world after a performance the night before. I am still performing frequently. Sometimes, I have to postpone my Sundays for two days until Tuesday.
What is currently playing on the stereo? I am tuned in to Smooth FM. The last thing I want to do on my day off is listen to techno music. I have had enough of it by then.
Sundays in my childhood were filled with meeting friends at the park and simply spending time together. Even though I am away traveling often now, when I do return home, I still enjoy spending my Sundays reconnecting with loved ones.
What are you preparing? I enjoy a roast, whether it’s at a restaurant or made at home. I am skilled in cooking chicken, but on occasions when I am feeling extra lazy, I have been known to use Uber to order a Sunday roast from my nearby pub.
On a perfect Sunday, my greatest passion in life, aside from music, is participating in drag racing. I am the owner of Carl Cox Motorsport. When I am not working and there happens to be a race, I quickly put on my helmet, lower my head, and reach speeds of up to 250mph in a matter of five or six seconds, before the parachutes deploy. This experience is even more exhilarating than DJ-ing at a large event. During a gig, the most frightening thing that can happen is when a fan tries to place their drink on the turntables. However, during a race at Santa Pod [raceway], the G-force can reach anywhere from 4 to 5 Gs. I am not sure how healthy it is for me, but the rush is incredibly intense.
What do you do to relax? It may take some time. I have found that putting on my slippers and watching an old episode of Only Fools and Horses is the most effective method. I am a big fan of that show.
