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

LAURA JONES – CIRCUS 31.01.15

Amidst an endless army of DJs, Laura Jones’ light shines bright through the underground. On first glance perhaps its her trademark orange sunglasses and presence that can beam a smile from behind a turntable to the other side of a festival. Or the fact that her first forays into production steam rollered her into the spotlight. The house and techno starlet strode into our lives in 2011 with Love In Me, a summer anthem that filled her diary for the year almost overnight. But Laura’s story didn’t just begin with a big track and an eye condition that requires her to wear the glasses that protect her vision. It began at an early age spending every penny collecting music. Buying vinyl like her life depended on it after discovering underground music on an Ibizan dancefloor. Bucking the trend of one hit wonder producers lacking the DJing skills to maintain their success on the world stage, she´s earning a reputation as a DJ´s DJ.

She was quickly taken under the wing of first Circoloco and then Fabric, the two clubs she´s become best known for plying her trade at and her intensive schedule has featured Detroit´s Electronic Movement Festival, the UK´s Warehouse Project, Amsterdams Mysterylands, Richie Hawtin´s Enter night in Ibiza and a residency at house music institution Back To Basics in Leeds to name a few.
