Anyone will tell you that after experiencing a good old Circus rave up, you'll be left desperate for the next one to come around, so it'll come as massive news to accustomed ravers that there'll be two in the space of a week at Liverpool's Arts Club on two of the biggest party nights of the year - Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
It's a well known fact by now that Yousef doesn't do things by halves (read about that in our interview with him here), and he continues that trend on boxing day with a line up that features an arsenal of all star selectors that's kicked off by the man himself going back to back with Saved Records kingpin Nic Fanciulli (in the Boiler Room above), who will both be serving up an amalgamation of discerning house and techno.
George Fitzgerald digs from the deeper depths of house music for your listening pleasure on the night; Hotflush don Scuba spins an onslaught of sought after wax (as demonstrated below) before Darius Syrossian tears the place apart with some steelier slabs of tech house.
And that's not it with Premiesku engineering a slot on a bill without forgetting it's ever consistent Circus family; David Glass, Lewis Boardman and Scott Lewis. Get your tickets here.
It kicks off 2015 in similar fashion with another finely curated billing of dance floor commanders that starts off with none other than Kerri Chandler. If you're not yet accustomed with Chandler's New Jersey tinged house classics then you're in for a treat, which we're sure Yousef himself will attest to.
Elsewhere Hot Creations poster boy Richy Ahmed champions his distinct groove laden funky house that's seen him spearhead a new wave of house DJs in recent years.
The night is also bolstered by Coyu - the revered Barcelona producer has been paramount to Suara music's with tracks such as his remix of X Press-2's 'Muzik Express' (above) and Dutch duo Detroit Swindle give the night some added zest with their armada of dance floor bombs. Get your tickets here.
