When the British DJ and producer Yousef first conceived the idea of Circus over a decade ago, he wanted to promote a party in his then hometown of Liverpool for somewhere he could play quality electronic music and have fun. And from its first bass-reverberating session, Circus has evolved into one of the best house and techno parties on the planet.
To mark 10 years of exemplary events in Liverpool and beyond, Yousef asked his friends to make him a new track exclusively for Circus Recordings to recognize the relationship between the club and its djs and artists. Green Velvet, Guti, Carl Cox, Nick Curly, Derrick Carter, Dj Sneak, Tim Green, David Squillace and Nic Fanciulli all have contributed a new unreleased track each for the compilation, mixed by the man himself, Yousef, which completes the collection of 10 tracks with his own production Italo Sleeze.
Circus X Compilation
Circus has enhanced Liverpool’s reputation as an epicentre for electronic music culture. Its revered status is augmented by the quality of its bookings and the loyalty of its crowd, crowned by the 10th anniversary celebrations in September 2012, and the series of X Parties through the rest of the year. It’s a club whose founding ethos remains the same to this day: serious music and fun times.
