Yousef’s Circus comes to London
There’s a Circus in The Egg…
Whether going solo or doing parties with Planet E, Cocoon or BBC Radio One for the historic 500th Essential Mix, they’ve always got the mixture of established and the soon to be huge perfectly balanced. Sven Vath, Carl Cox, Ritchie Hawtin, Loco Dice, Luciano, Ricardo Vilalobos, Carl Craig and Adam Beyer are among those representing the former, whilst they can lay claim to being among the very first to champion the likes of Seth Troxler, Maya Jane Coles and Resident Advisor’s No 1 DJ Jamie Jones.
Yousef’s Circus will be arriving in London and shaking things up at The Egg, demonstrating why this club night has been going strong in Yousef’s home city of Liverpool for almost 10 years. As Yousef said it himself, “The concept of Circus is simple: serious house music and fun times – booking DJs and acts that have, and will, inspire me”. And that’s exactly what is being upheld for this London event with some very inspiring DJs joining Yousef for this momentous night.
Yousef himself, is a man firmly in control of his imminent destiny. He’s an artist that continues to evolve and develop with consummate ease. As a producer he continues to smash preconceptions about not only his style but the wider spectrum of House and Techno as well. Recently he’s gifted his beats to an ever expanding cluster of the most revered and respected imprints in the business, be them Carl Cox’s Intec, Nick Curly’s Cecille and of course Sven Vath’s timeless label Cocoon.
Dinky is a powerhouse. Dinky – Alejandra has grown her stature the old-fashioned way, with killer DJ skills and a catalog filled with classic, game-changing tracks. Caught up in the musical revolution started by the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Dandy Jack and Atom Heart in the early ’90s, she taught herself to mix records and was soon appearing at desert raves.
Matthew Styles migrated to London around the turn of the millennium in order to further exhibit his already multiple years of turntable training. The move proved to be a pivotal moment in all that was to come. A pair of seemingly casual events – purchasing an Akai MPC and meeting the London Records’ A&R man Damian Lazarus through mutual friend Rob Mello – would in many ways shape much of his proceeding decade and in 2003 he was asked to take up a management role at Crosstown Rebels.
