Circus London – Yousef’s ‘A Product of Your Environment’ Album Launch Party
Launching Yousef’s new album…
Circus is back in London for another instalment of meticulous melodies and gorgeous grooves. It marks the first show of their eleventh year after September saw them celebrate a decade at the pinnacle of UK clubland. This party is emblematic of why exactly the club manages to retain such a definitive allure, featuring a selection of some of the defining figures of the underground alongside Yousef for celebration of the release of his second artist album “A Product of Your Environment”.
Yousef’s 2012 is coming to an end in scintillating style. His sophomore album has been met with universal acclaim by both his peers and the media, with continued DJ support from the likes of Loco Dice, Magda, Carl Cox, Guti, Uner and Nic Fanciuilli. It’s a showcase of the journey Yousef has made both as an artist and as a man during the twenty years he has been involved in dance music, and whilst a movement away from the usual beat led formula of DJ albums it still remains firmly rooted in the dancefloor – evolution rather than revolution of his individual and unique style.
Luca Bachetti will be joining him, the sometime Ovum and Wagon Repair recording artist famous for his defining role in the swing led sound of the Italian house scene. His musical style has gained an exotic momentum since his relocation to Barcelona in recent years, and an old school influenced jack gives his music a cunning edge that makes them all the more fiercely relevant in the modern field, and for his Circus debut is richly anticipated.
The remaining support cast is a strong smattering of some of the leading lights in modern electronica, not least Israeli beat technician Guy J who drops by. His trippy sonics have been stapled effervescently to warm textures to create a sonic palette that is both driving and elegant, an extremely rare proposition. Intec recordings artist Jon Rundell also drops by with his explosive ensemble of bass heavy house and techno, with Circus resident Lewis Boardman wrapping things up.

Cocoon hits England for a double date weekend….
This weekend is surely going to be a storm for everyone involved in Cocoon’s visit to England, as well as for Liverpool’s Nation and London’s Fabric.
Cocoon will be making a double date tour this weekend, kicking on Friday at Nation, Circus presents the Cocoon night with a line-up of some of the industry’s most established DJs; Booka Shade, Guy Gerber, Raresh and Onur Ozer. Not to mention Circus top man Yousef and Cocoon legend Sven Väth.
With Circus’ involvement in hosting a Cocoon night with such a line-up, Liverpool’s Nation is going to be electric.
Moving on to Saturday night and Cocoon will be landing at Fabric and how are we pleased to see the legendary Sven Väth gracing Fabric once again. Here Sven will be joined in Room 1 by Turkish DJ Onur Özer, known to music lovers for his offering on the Green and Blue mix series last year, as well as London’s very own Matt Tolfrey, who are surely going to be shaking things up.
Room 2 will be just as momentous with Chile’s Dinky being joined by Italy’s Ilario Alicante and Marcus Fix, who has acclaimed releases on Cécille, Oslo and Cocoon.
And last but by no means least, the intimate Room 3 will be given a run through its paces with Craig Richards and Jozif rocking through the night.
If after this weekend of madness you still feel like you could do with some more, make sure you get yourself down to Cable, London Bridge, for Jaded’s 6th Birthday where you are sure to experience possibly the greatest after party in the Capital. Running Sunday morning from 5am till 2pm the renowned Raymundo Rodriguez will be joined by Bass Culture boss D’Julz, Circo Loco legend’s System of Survival, Rythmatic’s Stathis Lazarides and Wesley Razzy. As well as Tommi & Colette Delalez. A morning not to be missed!
You can guarantee that Guerilla Sounds will be at Fabric for Cocoon and we might even pop in to Jaded for a bit of after hours shenanigans!
