Started by SW4, a petition has been launched to make veteran DJ Carl Cox an MBE.
For those not familiar wit the term, MBS stands for Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire and is one of the 5 classes of appointments to the Order of The British Empire (whose ultimate honor is Knighthood). In their reasoning for launch, SW4 describes Cox as,
“a national treasure. A global icon. A living legend for fans of electronic music from across the world. Today we reach out to all music lovers and ask them to please sign this petition for Carl to be nominated as an MBE in the 2017 New Year’s Honours list…Carl has never failed to inspire his fellow DJs, our staff and most importantly the thousands of people in front of him each and every time he has played our event. His energy knows no bounds and his passion for dance music is unparalleled.”
The Order recognizes those who have made achievements in public life or committed themselves to serving and helping Britain. With Carl Cox’ 4 decades in the game, alongside his seminal involvement in the advancement of house, dance, and DJ culture at large, surely his consideration is the least that can happen.
Sign the petition before 19 July HERE
