On the second bank holiday weekend in May, Circus will be celebrating once again with a line up that brings together more of the hottest electronic music artists of today, something the Liverpool based brand is consistent at ensuring. Taking place at East Village Arts Clubs, Circus will as usual be featuring resident DJ and curator of the event Yousef, who will be joined by a plethora of talent looking to pull together various styles of the best quality house and techno.
Headlining proceedings will be none other than electronic music legend Sasha. Having been DJing for over 30 years, Sasha is someone who knows the ins and out of getting a dance floor moving. With a host of impressive releases from his first emFire EP’s like ‘Coma’ and ‘Who Killed Sparky?’ to his more recent ‘Involver’ compilations, Sasha has been releasing top quality house music for a long while. Looking at Sasha’s DJ career, he has played at a high percentage of the world’s most renowned nightclubs, a multitude of festivals and his own curated club nights which include his ‘Last Night On Earth’ show that took place at The Brixton Academy in London on New Years Eve.
Joining Sasha at Circus on the 25th of May will be frontline Desolat member Guti, who will be bringing his ever-impressive live show. Having just released his brand new LP ‘Rompecorazones’, Guti has an abundance of fresh music that we will be treated to this may bank holiday. Pulling inspiration from jazz musicians and being a skilled pianist himself, his music consists of infectious melodies, which build through energetic grooves and drums that will make East Village Arts Club feel like it’s in somewhere deep in South America.
Continuing the list of exciting performers will be British duo Gorgon City, who’s bass led house and garage offerings are an energetic blend of the duo’s individual tastes (formerly producing separately as Foamo and RackNRuin), which over the past few years has been the pinnacle sound at getting hips shaking and fists pumping.
Huxley is the final guest who will be bringing the heat to Circus May 25th, and having been throwing out many dance floor favourites on labels such as Leftroom, Cécille and Fear Of Flying, he is a name most will be familiar with. Having produced some of the most popular club tracks from past years including ‘Shower Scene’ and ‘Box Clever’, Huxley is no stranger to heating up dance floors, and makes a great final addition to Circus’ second bank holiday party in May.
As always, Circus Residents Lewis Boardman and Scott Lewis will be joining Yousef and the guests, rounding off what is a very juicy bill indeed. Judging from the huge line up and special vibe that Circus never fails to bring, this is going to be another exceptional night indeed.
