Cox began his career as a hardcore/rave DJ in the mid-1980s. He has performed at clubs such as The Eclipse, Edge, Shelly's, Sterns Nightclub, Heaven, Sir Henry's in Cork, Ireland and Angels and The Haçienda, as well as raves for Fantazia, Dreamscape, NASA and Amnesia House. He now spearheads two record labels, Intec Records and 23rd Century Records. He also has his own stage every year at Ultra Music Festival, Tomorrowland, Global Gathering and Electric Daisy Carnival called Carl Cox & Friends. In the film, "Can U Feel It?", a documentary about Ultra as a music festival, Carl explains that the concept of Carl Cox & Friends came about as a result of not only wanting to play longer sets at festivals, but to also give festival goers an experience within the festival, as Carl has far more creative control over his own stage. The stage is wildly popular with festival goers, and for the 2014 edition of Ultra, Carl Cox & Friends celebrated their ten-year anniversary for being a stage at Ultra. During the two days, Carl was joined by the likes of Pete Tong, Dubfire, Marco Bailey, UMEK, Luciano, and Loco Dice.
He ran Ultimate Base at the now defunct Velvet Underground club on Charing Cross Road in the mid- to late 1990s. Cox also played the Millennium (1999 to 2000) New Year's Eve twice by performing in Sydney and again in Hawaii after flying back over the International Date Line. He has had shows on Kiss FM and was a monthly live, global resident for BBC Radio One's Essential Mix in 1998–99, as well as over a decade's worth of Ibiza live mixes broadcast from Club Space in Miami. Cox's performances in Ibiza in Residence and Club Space included Kryoman.
