Popular music podcast, 'Trailblazers: Electronic Pioneers' struck an impressive note with fans of the genre when it was first aired back in 2018 and shot to the top of the iTunes music podcast charts. Scroll forward to 2022 and the new season has once again attracted some of the most respected innovators in the scene to chat about their journeys in music.

Created and hosted by two of the industry's most influential experts, Eddy Temple-Morris, radio and TV presenter (Virgin Radio, BBC Radio 1, MTV, XFM, Channel 4) and Nick Halkes, a record label/publishing executive and artist manager, who famously co-founded XL Recordings and signed The Prodigy, the podcast's guest list reads like a who's who of music industry legends.

World-renowned icons such as Paul Oakenfold, Paul van Dyk, Goldie, Danny Rampling, Fatboy Slim, DJ Fresh and synth pioneer Gary Numan have all appeared on the show, sharing never-before-heard tales and amusing anecdotes, delving deep into the stories behind the music and the tracks that have soundtracked their fascinating lives.

Proudly sponsored by Skiddle, the fourth season kicks off with a particularly special first instalment. Joining the show's founders to discuss everything from his childhood days, selecting 7-inch records to play at family parties, to providing the sound system for one of London's most celebrated club nights, Shoom, as well as his globe-trotting adventures, the man, the myth, the legend, Carl Cox goes behind the scenes on his unparalleled and glittering career. 

The first episode launches today (13th October) ahead of his performance at the OVO Wembley Arena this weekend. Listen to the interview with Carl Cox below...

Speaking of the new season of Trailblazers, Eddy Temple-Morris said:

“Nick and I have always seen our podcast as a rolling legacy project, to give people a free and easily accessible archive to capture and preserve the stories behind electronic music which has changed the lives of millions of people around the world.
"Our first three seasons generated a loyal following of fans and now Skiddle are invaluable collaborators to continue the journey, allowing us to merge the two paths and keep making more stops along this fascinating road.”
