British techno/house godfather Carl Cox is playing a few select North American dates this autumn, and Orlando will be hosting one of them.

Cox is set to play Miami, Washington, D.C., and Orlando in early October, thanks to promoters Factory 93. The Orlando appearance will be at downtown's Vanguard club on Friday, Oct. 1 — the kickoff show for the triumvirate of appearances, no less.

Since the 1980s, Cox has been a trailblazing producer and in-demand DJ worldwide playing clubs and festivals all over the globe, with forays into disco, techno, hip-hop, acid house and rave.

He started making his own music in 1991, and his 1995 F.A.C.T. mix became a classic of the genre (with sales figures to match). He was a resident DJ at Space in party haven Ibiza for nearly 15 years — which in all likelihood means that he got approximately two hours of sleep the entire run.

Tickets to this October engagement are on sale through Factory 93 now.
