CIRCUS – TEN 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 

Joesph Capriati presents Autoritratto

Filmed on location in Joseph Capriati’s hometown of Caserta, Napoli during February 2013, ‘Autoritratto’ (translated from Italian as ‘Self Portrait’) tells the story of Capriati’s rise to prominence and provides a unique insight into his personal life, all set against the backdrop of his now legendary 12-hour marathon set at Metropolis.

Exploring the background and influences of the Italian Techno maestro with the help of his family, close friends and the music industry personalities that have been instrumental in shaping Capriati’s career to date, the film charts Joseph’s history from his first DJ gigs through to becoming a principle player within the Techno scene.

Containing interviews with the artists and promoters closest to Capriati, plus exclusive footage from his unforgettable performance at Metropolis, ‘Autoritratto’ features a soundtrack made up of many of Joseph’s most memorable productions alongside music from his ‘Self Portrait’ for Drumcode.

KYDUS – Free Spirit

The video for Kydus’ latest release on Yousef’s Circus Recordings is debuting exclusively here at Mixmag now.

Titled ‘Free Spirit’, the track is a heartfelt tribute to the well-loved and vibrant Carla Clarkson, a close friend of Kydus and Yousef and promising DJ who tragically took her own life after suffering prolonged domestic violence and social abuse.

Kydus and Yousef worked with the family of Clarkson, who was affectionately nicknamed Bert, to create an apt tribute video that depicts Bert’s distinctive and spirited personality with an array of colourful balloons in many of her favourite spots in Liverpool.

A percentage of the income from the track will be donated to Papyrus, a charity chosen by Bert’s family that focuses on preventing suicide in young people.
