  • Tickets available at the door! The final Circus London of the year rounds off a frenetic 2012 for the clubnight’s forages into the capital. Yousef has had quite the 2012. A brilliantly received second album has been combined with a slew of killer singles and a hotly lusted after record label in Circus Recordings, further establishing the aural snapshot of the club into the releases realm. He was recently asked once again to provide an Essential Mix off the back of Circus' decade of dance, the result met with widespread acclaim by the dance music community. It was easy to see why; it was emblematic of the floor wrecking which has been his template since the mid nineties, DJ sets traversing house and techno that ooze with funk and charisma. It's a template which is quickly making Yousef's Circus sets in London as feted as they are in Liverpool, establishing his and Circus' musical vision beyond his hometown. Proceedings are bolstered by a turn from Lee Foss. He's been behind, alongside Jamie Jones, the hottest label of recent times Hot Creations, blazing an emphatic trail on the current electronic music landscape. His true house music heritage (Foss is a born and raised Chicago native) has combined with the Hot Creations and his own personal signature, injecting warmth and emotion back into house music - adding humanity back into the machines. Like Yousef he has also mixed a recent Essential Mix to universal approval and has tasted recent chart success with Hot Natured's ‘Benediction' nestling into the UK top 30, a rare achievement for a record to untie the record buying public and the world's dancefloors. Minus' moody techno doyen Matador also joins the soiree, the creator of some of the most evocative and heartfelt electronica in recent times fresh off a year touring across the world's biggest clubs and festivals. The Irish producer has delivered a stunning update to Bryan Zentz' classic ‘D-Clash' as well as creating the ‘Kingswing' EP, five slabs of stadium shattering sonics that saw widespread love from the likes of Loco Dice, Seth Troxler, Sven Vath and Steve Lawler. Further announcements on the line-up are due imminently.
