Shooting with Carl Cox on the White Isle

Heading to Ibiza to spend the day with the nicest man in dance music has to be up there with one of the most enjoyable shoots of 2017.

We were lucky enough to get up close and personal with Carl while he talked us through his DJ setup and the impressive Model 1 mixer.

The team at Hangar 8289 Studios were very accommodating, and we enjoyed taking this shoot away from the usual club environment to this unique gallery location. This gave us the space we needed to set up multiple cameras around Carl as he worked his magic on the decks, including the A7sii on a super boom for the important birds-eye view of Carl’s hands on the mixer.

Carl knows Ibiza like the back of his hand so we were happy to take his recommendation for the crew catering, and enjoyed some of the best sushi this side of Tokyo. If only every shoot could be like this!

Here’s a link to the film we produced in partnership with creative director and long-time Clockwise collaborator Ed Williams.
