June sees Yousef once again curate his Circus event deep in the heart of London's vibrant underground house and techno scene at EGG. Joining him will be Parisian based Paul Ritch, who’s already forging a solid reputation by releasing tracks and remixes on labels such as Get Physical, Quartz records, The Great Wall, Sci+Tec, Drumcode and Cocoon, whilst DJing at some of the most influential clubs and events globally including Rex Club, Paris, Melkweg, Amsterdam, Pressure @ The Arches, Scotland, and Womb, Japan.
Alongside DJs such as Dave Clarke, Paco Osuna and Nic Fanciulli, Paul has engrained himself into the modern day techno echelons. Paul’s last appearance in London was at Fabric in October 2012. The line-up also includes Danish DJ, producer and label owner, Noir. Inspired by the Detroit three of Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May and Juan Atkins and the house, techno, acid and rave cultures coming from Chicago, and New York, Noir has been crafting his art and producing sub-heavy, down-tempo funk fuelled tech led tracks such as ‘Around’ since 1997. ‘Around’, released in 2011, was a collaboration with Malaysian producer Haze, which received support from Soul Clap, Deetron, Ame, Wolf and Lamb, and many others.
Locking it all together is head honcho, Yousef, back in the UK for a brief stint after his international gigs in South Africa, playing for the first time in Cape Town and Johannesburg as he gets set for his Circus residency at the new Bomba club in Ibiza. Circus at Bomba should open on Thursday 6th of June, and across the summer it will be featuring a selection of the world’s best electronic music DJs and artists, friends and family of Circus.
