The rest of 2011 is set to be huge for Yousef, arguably his strongest yet in the production field. After spending much of 2010 recording remixes and productions for other leading labels Yousef has come back strong on his own seminal Circus recordings, dropping the Circus Reworks EP as a precursor to his experimental and far reaching sophomore album scheduled to blow up later in 2011.
The EP is centered on a very simple premise; taking eight pieces of music and recreating them with Yousef’s indiscernibly brilliant club night in mind. A resolutely dance floor-focused collection, they combine to create a unique aural tapestry representative of the Circus and Yousef’s own musical evolution. Each is an intricate and heartfelt paean of love to Circus and the huge impact it has had on both clubland and Yousef’s career for the last almost nine years, with the club’s birthday approaching this September.
