Prepare to be awestruck, titillated and entertained as Circus, Jodie Harsh's infamous club, night rolls into Matter at the o2 for one night only, on 4th July 2009.
This year, Circus is officially teaming up with Pride London to present a host of spectacles much bigger, better and more outrageous than you’ve ever witnessed on a dance floor. With a melee of special guest DJs and entertainers across two huge rooms of pandemonium and colour, this big top couldn’t be further removed from the carnival you visited as a child.
In it's three years of delighting clubbers, who travel far and wide to join the Circus, the night has always boasted big name DJ's. Tonight is no exception. In fact, it's the biggest line-up Circus has ever seen and undoubtedly Matter's most diverse and colourful:
Siouxsie Sioux (DJ): Siouxsie (DJ Set): To call this lady “legendary” is surely an understatement: Siouxsie’s singing career has spanned a breathtaking three decades since taking to the stage in late 1976. Siouxsie’s debut single with the Banshees, “Hong Kong Garden”, was a massive hit in 1978 and kick started a torrent of 20-plus top twenty singles, 15 critically acclaimed albums and a musical journey that is second to none. In 2006 Siouxsie recorded her first solo album - the resulting “Mantaray” was heralded as possibly her best ever and contained the storming “Into A Swan” and “Here Comes That Day” singles. Siouxsie is one of the most groundbreaking and iconic females in popular culture and has proved an inspiration for an army of followers and admirers. Now, armed with her own personal record collection, Siouxsie Sioux has chosen Circus as the setting to begin her DJ career with an exclusive set at Matter.
Frankmusic (DJ): It goes without saying that 2009 is Frankmusik's year. The electro singer, producer, disc jockey and remixer is near to completing his debut album co-produced by Stuart Price - who has previously weaved his magic on albums by The Killers and Madonna - while what little time he has left over has been given to remixing the likes of CSS and Mika. An established DJ, Frankmusik has toured the world spinning platters that matter and we're excited to welcome him to the Circus.
Kissy sell Out (Live): He may have remixed the likes of Mark Ronson, Sugababes, Gwen Stefani, Groove Armada and Calvin Harris, and DJ’d the world over with his Kissy Klub, but tonight the Sell Out himself is performing tracks from his debut album Youth live with his band.
Secret PA (Live): This super hot female soloist is one of the girls of the moment and we’ll be releasing her name nearer the time. Sorry, we like to tease.
Jodie Harsh (DJ): Dubbed the 'real Queen of England', Harsh has taken drag to pop cultural levels not seen since the eighties and is an established DJ across the UK, and indeed the world. Jodie is currently in the studio working on remixes for various music outfits and has recently worked closely with both Larry Tee and William Orbit. Jodie is resident DJ at Manumission and is about to embark on a world tour with them. As the promoter of Circus, Jodie Harsh is your ringleader this evening, and promises many exciting surprises.
Dan Gillespe Sells (DJ): As the lead singer of The Feeling, Dan can claim to be in one of the UK's most successful indie pop bands of the last decade. They have toured the word, swept up at award shows and had ten singles hit the charts in the UK. Dan is also an accomplished DJ with an arsenal of music.
Kris di Angelis (DJ): Resident DJ at Circus, remixer for Ladyhawke, Roisin Murphy and Lily Allen, and this summer’s new resident at Space in Ibiza, this Defected-signed artist is the new name to drop on the electro circuit. Learn it, because you’ll be hearing it often.
Tom Stephan (DJ): Tom is one of the hardest working DJs in the industry flying all over the world to wow crowds with his unique electronic beeps and pieces. He juggles his DJ commitments with production and remix work for Missy Elliot, Goldfrapp, Pet Shop Boys and Kylie, as well as Eric Morillo, Roger Sanchez and Danny Tenaglia, while heading up his label ChumboMundo.
