The second instalment of Circus’ capital frolics in 2013 sees them whip up another triple pronged line-up of exciting talent. As ever the focus is on the most vibrant and exciting names in modern house and techno, all headed up by the man that defines and heads up Circus, the indomitable Yousef. It marks the culmination of twelve months in the capital for the clubnight, part of Egg London’s continued spearhead as one of the most exciting venues in the UK.
Yousef’s 2013 has begun in much the same fashion that is 2012 ended, a relentless buzz of effervescent electronica. With his ‘Beg’ release entering the year as one of the biggest sellers across any genre on Beatport, Yousef has been rapidly consolidating his status as one of the most important figureheads with in the electronic scene. A tour of the states and Columbia ushered the year in whilst Circus Recordings announced exciting plans of a cluster of forward thinking music; further proof of Yousef’s role as a pivotal force in unearthing new talent in this day and age.
That role is illustrated in the shape of the guests for this party. Hot Since 82, the remixer which enabled ‘Beg’ to reach its lofty status, is next in line and a name that is quickly garnering widespread acclaim. Another product of Leeds’ unerring ability to create house music heroes, Hot Since 82’s sound is the perfect juxtaposition of deep house and the classic jack of yesteryear. He’s found the support of Pete Tong, Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, Jaymo & Andy George and Joris Voorn, as well as gigs at Ushuaia, Snowbombing and Watergate all coming his way... proof of a man rising to the very top of the game.
The final name comes in the shape of another producer who set the world alight last year, Pirupa. The Italian firebrand delivered arguably the standout track of the summer in 2012, ‘Party Non Stop’, a volatile slab of hip-house that never relented on its endearing energy. Cained to death by a astonishingly versatile selection of DJs that included Carl Cox, Marco Carola, Steve Lawler and even Paul van Dyk, it followed on from a whirlwind few years which has also seen ‘Sweet Devil’ and Get Funky’ fgervently supported.
His DJing ability is as energetic and funky as the productions which have seen his star rise; all ensuring his Egg London performance will be one of the early pace-setters in the capital’s nightlife this year. The second and third rooms will as ever be manned by a strong selection of Egg London’s friends and residents.
