Yousef Sizes Up 2011 – New Artist Album And Circus Evolves
aaamusic | On 05, Mar 2011
Yousef has really taken the last couple of years by storm – and 2011 looks set to eclipse everything he has achieved so far in his career. It’s testament to his incredibly focussed work ethic which has already seen an Ibiza residency, debut artist album and his own Liverpool-based club night, Circus, all flourish, combined with a prodigious studio output of releases, remixes and special projects.
2011 will see Yousef’s second artist album released, which will be his most forward-thinking and musically broad project to date. With such a wide range of influences and inspirations, it will build upon the success of A Collection of Scars and Situations, further consolidating Yousef’s standing and evolution in electronica.
Yousef says that, “I just want to keep working hard and staying at the centre of music. There’s so much important stuff happening right now. Circus continues to be right at the fore of house music and techno – we’re continually debuting new guests too, everyone from Space Dimension Controller to Aeroplane, and really stretching the boundaries of what the club stands for. It’s an amazing time for Circus in Liverpool. The summer’s starting to taker shape too already – I will be back in Ibiza again, and can’t wait for that!”
