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 

Lewis Boardman – Rambunctious EP

As one of the resident DJs at CIRCUS in his native home town Liverpool, Lewis Boardman has steadily carved out his own style and sound, both behind the turntables, as well as in the studio. With notable releases on labels like Play It Down, NRK and Souvenir, and remixes on Rekids and Renaissance, Lewis lands on Cadenza Lab with the “Rambunctious” EP.

Three tracks then from Lewis, all very dancefloor orientated, grabbing at the essential raw elements of house music and working them to maximum effect. Opening track “Werk It” does what it says on the tin; finger snapping beats with shuffling hats, rising FX and incessant vocal hits, body music for the late night jackers!

“Home” is a hypnotizing slab of deep tribalism, the dense and brooding drums get lifted with tense strings, looping melody and distant vocal chops, whilst “Rubber Johnny”, with its rave-like stabs and concrete solid beats, works it like a proper Dub mix does, its swing reminiscent of those beloved Mood II Swing dubs of yesteryear.

Most definitely a trio of very useful cuts here for the more discerning house lovers!

Ten Walls – Walking with Elephants

Ten Walls arrived onto the musical landscape in Spring 2013 with a hint of mystery and one groundbreaking E.P. on Berlin’s flawless ‘Innervisions’ label. The track, ‘Gotham’ went on to conquer main rooms and festival stages worldwide, and during the summer of 2013 achieved anthem status. His next big track, ‘Walking with Elephants’ is indeed epic in its own way, and has all the requirements to make any house-loving crowd go crazy, as several DJ’s have already been proving in their sets. The buildup is perfectly balanced, and the break in the middle gives you exactly enough time to catch your breath, enjoy the crowd and regenerate just in time for a second run. This producer knows his timing, and Walking with Elephants proves once more why the hype around him is justified.
