CIRCUS – TWELVE YEARS AND COUNTING

When 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.
Circus has come a long way. What started off as a simple ‘house party’ in one small room has become a globally recognised club night of immense stature, reaching a decade of brilliant parties which inspire its audience and DJs alike. Circus has hosted pretty much every iconic figure of dance music; Sven Vath, Carl Cox, Loco Dice, Luciano, Ricardo Villalobos, Carl Craig, Laurent Garnier (DJ sets & live), Marco Carola, Jamie Jones, Adam Beyer, Derrick Carter, DJ Sneak, Butch, Sasha, Seth Troxler, John Digweed, Aeroplane, Heidi, Dennis Ferrer, Magda, Heidi, Maya Jane Coles, Nick Curly, Tim Green, Raresh, Guy Gerber and many, many more have all contributed to the club’s illustrious history, whilst helping to set its future course.
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’. It’s also a club whom for each show gives a debut, introducing new talent to the city; Circus was the first to bring the likes of Loco Dice and Davide Squillace to the UK and among the first to champion now global stars like Seth Troxler and Jamie Jones, when they were unknown years ago.  CLICK TO READ ON 

Butch – CIRCUS 05.04.15

“I like to make people dance and have fun. I’m the captain of the spaceship and I’m driving it. People who come to the show get in the ship – and I take them on a trip. To get into the spaceship, they leave their physical body at the door. You must switch off the real world and switch off the mind. I will do the rest.”

MATADOR // CIRCUS Easter Sunday

Underneath the Enter banner, Gavin has been a regular resident performing extensively in Ibiza over the past three seasons and at Enter events all over the world from Brixton to Amsterdam and farther afield in Los Angeles and Miami. Performing at Enter has also given Matador the chance to perfect his live performance and his successes here were reflected by fact that he was anointed Best Live Performer Ibiza 2014 at this year’s DJ Awards, recognition of his dedicated efforts in a live setting.

The past two years have seen Matador continue his studio prowess with a string of releases including a remix for techno legends Dubfire and Oliver Huntemann and a new EP for Minus in Zoles which was a 5 track salvo for his label of choice. 2014 saw the producer indulge his love of remixing with a remix for Depeche Mode a particular highlight. 2014 also saw Matador’s Versions EP come to light, inspired by the many sounds that influenced him as a young DJ, the EP gave new life to a number seminal dance tracks including most interestingly The Chemical Brothers – It Began In Africa. Many of these tracks were included in his recent Essential Mix.

Kolsch – CIRCUS Easter Sunday

Well known for his productions Rune Reilly Kolsch has sold millions of records all over the world under his many different monikers and production work includes some of the biggest artist in the world. But something has always been missing.

Being a true techno head, paying homage to his underground roots is very important to him. So he started the slightly mysterious Tattoorecs with his brother Johannes Torpe, and together they are enjoying great success with their blend of romantic techno with strong influences from the heydays of Detroit and Chicago.

With the label’s unique release concept of no titles, only tattoos, the label quickly gathered support from the biggest minimal DJs across the globe; Sven Väth, Richie Hawtin, Magda, Tiefschwarz and Ricardo Villalobos all support thes..

DJ Tennis // CIRCUS Easter Sunday

‘DJ Tennis bases himself in Berlin where he also shares the label experience and a studio with the innovative deep electronic duo Tale of Us, whilst he working hard to create a crew of young and inspired musicians like Clockwork and Esperanza, amongst others. On top of all of this he still maintains his main job is still being a Promoter and a Booking agent in 2012. He may go by the name Tennis but he continues to be a hugely talented all-rounder.’

We are delighted to have DJ Tennis making his CIRCUS debut at our Easter Sunday show on 05.04.15, alongside Yousef B2B Eats Everything, Kolsch, Butch, Matador, Lewis Boardman, Scott Lewis plus many more..

Andrea Oliva // EXCLUSIVE mix for Thump Magazine

The journey of Andrea Oliva from first hearing music to becoming a fast rising DJ Talent is an organic one, from hearing music as a 13 year old to a 16 year old learning to DJ and working in a record store. As he began to build a collection of the most upfront promos and white labels from Europe and beyond, he soon secured bookings at Switzerlands top clubs leading to residencies at Terminus, Pravda and Pacha Zurich and soon led him to the front door of Luciano’s Cadenza Records.

Both Andrea’s 2012 releases, ‘Click Off’ EP (Cadenza) and ‘Scene’ (Be As One), saw him break into the Beatport Top 10 downloads chart which led to Andrea being the most charted artist on Resident Advisor in February and March last year, where some of the biggest DJ’s in the business are playing and charting his music.

2013 was Andrea’s most successful year to date as he launched his summer residency at the place that changed Ibiza, as we know it today, ‘Ushuaïa Ibiza’. He played out to the masses at the venues hottest new underground party ‘ANTS’. He also topped the Beatport charts with his remix of Luciano’s ‘Rise Of Angels’ which was known as the ANTS summer anthem and spread like wildfire across the whole island of Ibiza as well as being one of Cadenza’s biggest selling records to date.

We are expecting even bigger things from this fast rising star as he returns to his ANTS residency whilst continuing his monthly residency at Nordstern and will be warming up this winter with a residency at Italy’s infamos Cocorico. To add to the extremely busy schedule, there are also releases expected to drop on Be As One, Saved, Nordstern Music, Defected, Objektivity and Mobilee records in 2014 and he certainly won’t be stopping there.

House lessons – Sidney Charles

Entitled House Lessons, that’s just what the mix is, a 360 degree view of modern house music, from the bumpy, vibe setting opener to the bouncy, shuffling garage inflections of ‘Drama’ via the jacking Darius Syrossian remix of ‘Housin Tha Rave.’
