Dance music maestro Camden Cox shares 10Trax which mean something to her, from Robyn to Ellie Goulding to Deadmau5.
Camden Cox has music in her veins. Growing up in the East Midlands, she absorbed the musical passions of both her parents, with her dad a drum player and her mum a club promoter. Pulled between club bangers and thudding rock, Cox chose the bangers, heading off to London to seek a career and linking up with Labrinth.
Labrinth quickly became a mentor to Cox, advising her away from a job singing on a cruise ship and steering her towards finding her own voice through the medium of songwriting, using poems she had already written alongside beats she had found online, her music becoming more and more sophisticated along the way.
Collaborating with some of the hottest names in dance music, Cox has created floor-fillers such as “Under the Water” and “Healing”, gaining notices from the likes of Mistajam, who called her “one of the most prolific songwriters in the dance music world”.
She has just dropped a bold new single, “Over”, a club anthem inspired by huge names like Robyn and Deadmau5. On the track, Cox has said: “I wrote this song about that transition phase when you’re going through a breakup but can’t quite let go of each other. You’ve had ‘the conversation’ and you know things are ending, but at the same time you maybe want to spend one last night together. You’re almost saying: ‘It’s not over ’till you’re gone.’ It’s a pretty messy situation, but I think we’ve all been there at least once in our lives.”
To celebrate her new drop, we asked Camden Cox to pick the 10Trax he had on repeat, ranging from Calvin Harris to Ellie Goulding to Rui da Silva.
