After Circus’ head honcho Yousef takes June by the reins with an exclusive 5-hour set, the 26th of July will see a line-up of humungous proportion come to East Village Arts Club to peak the summer months.
The first of the four guests who will be appearing on July’s line up is Innervisions spearhead and RA’s Number One DJ, Dixon. With co-founders Âme, Dixon has run one of the most reputable dance music labels of the last decade, having released some of the biggest tracks from the past few years including Ten Walls’ huge hit ‘Gotham’ as well as plenty of other delicacies from the likes of Recondite, Agoria and Henrik Schwarz to name just a few. As a DJ, Dixon is revered for regularly delivering a perfect balance of experimental dance music, whilst still providing the materials for a peak time club performance. Expect mysterious synths, driving bass and vocals that will see a sea of closed eyes and raised hands.
Next up is another artist who is responsible for one of the biggest tracks of last year. Producer of the unequivocal club hit ‘Bigger Than Prince’ is Green Velvet. Also performing under the pseudonym Cajmere, Green Velvet has been a mainstay in house and techno since his first releases in the mid-90’s such as ‘Preacher Man’ and ‘Answering Machine’. These classic cuts are still hammered throughout club land today and still sound as fresh as when they were first mixed. Expect an eclectic mix of harder and soul infected beats from the Chicago hero.
Joining Dixon and Green Velvet will be Subb-an, one of the most exciting young British producers to have submerged onto the scene in the past few years. Bringing with him his superb live show, Ashique Subhan has had a prosperous year already with dates at Circo Loco at DC-10 and the infamous Berghain for Finest Friday amongst a plethora of other festivals and club dates all over the globe. His own releases on prosperous record labels such as One Records, Noir Music and 2020 Vision have been weapons on the underground scene for years and still have a deep impact when unleashed on the crowds of today.
The fourth and final guest who will be gracing the Circus July line up is Dutch producer and DJ Tom Trago. Like the other guests who are coming to East Village Arts Club on the 26th July, Tom has provided us with some of the most well loved underground anthems of recent times. ‘Use Me Again’ and ‘What You Do’ were highlights in the sets of many DJ’s last year such as Loco Dice and Carl Craig, destroying dance floors wherever they were heard. He is a sterling addition to the line up and rounds off what we think you’ll agree is a huge date for the summer.
As always Yousef will be joining the guests doing what he does best, alongside residents Lewis Boardman and Scott Lewis.
