When Yousef first conceived the idea of Circus over a decade ago, he wanted to promote a party in his then hometown of Liverpool for somewhere he could play quality electronic music and have fun. And from its first bass-reverberating session, Circus has evolved into one of the best house and techno parties on the planet.
Circus has come a long way. What started off as a simple ‘house party’ in one small room has become a globally recognised club night of immense stature, reaching a decade of brilliant parties which inspire its audience and DJs alike. Circus has hosted pretty much every iconic figure of dance music; Sven Vath, Carl Cox, Loco Dice, Luciano, Ricardo Villalobos, Carl Craig, Laurent Garnier (DJ sets & live), Marco Carola, Jamie Jones, Adam Beyer, Derrick Carter, DJ Sneak, Butch, Sasha, Seth Troxler, John Digweed, Aeroplane, Heidi, Dennis Ferrer, Magda, Heidi, Maya Jane Coles, Nick Curly, Tim Green, Raresh, Guy Gerber and many, many more have all contributed to the club’s illustrious history, whilst helping to set its future course.
Circus has enhanced Liverpool’s reputation as an epicentre for electronic music culture. Its revered status is augmented by the quality of its bookings and the loyalty of its crowd, crowned by the 10th anniversary celebrations in September 2012, and the series of X parties through the rest of the year. It’s a club whose founding ethos remains the same to this day: ‘serious music and fun times’. It’s also a club whom for each show gives a debut, introducing new talent to the city; Circus was the first to bring the likes of Loco Dice and Davide Squillace to the UK and among the first to champion now global stars like Seth Troxler and Jamie Jones, when they were unknown years ago.
The recognition has come quick and fast, winning UK Club Of The Year from the BBC and recently praised as Mixmag’s ‘number one’ night. The dance music press continues to universally respect and admire the club’s achievements, praising each new chapter. When BBC Radio 1 wanted to celebrate their epochal 500th Essential Mix DJ, Circus was their obvious choice to host the historical occasion. The event saw Ritchie Hawtin pitted side by side with Sasha, with Pete Tong holding court as Aeroplane made history, with Yousef of course taking centre stage.
As we gear up for our 15th birthday celebrations we’ve got one more club show to fit in at the Arts Club. In this next installment of shows at our spiritual home we welcome Chibuku debutants Amine Edge & Dance. Made famous for their great tracks and remixes, the duet was able to inject a stream of cool in the middle of the house music by creating their own style. An explosive style that combines the big bass of Funk and inspirations of Hip-House in the late ’80s, their Manchester show at the Albert Hall was an amazing show by all accounts and we’re very excited to see what they can do over in Liverpool. Joining them in the Loft will be UK chart topper Wilkinson of “Afterglow” fame and rising DnB star Dimension. Super early bird tickets are on sale now!

Amine Edge Biography:
Amine Edge is known in France and in the rest of the world as one of the symbolic figures of the brand new “G House” movement. Basically called “Gangsta House”, the name of this movement comes from the special atmosphere this music just kicks away: here comes another vision of the House music, a stunning combination between Funk’s deep basses and inspired by the latest 80s Hip House movement.
Born in 1983 in South of France, Amine Edge discovers House music on his very early: at 13 he buys his first one vinyl and begins to play in clubs from the age of 16. His first single is released in 2007, from that day several EPs and mixes are following, which worth him numerous worldwide famous Dj’s support such as Solomun, Laurent Garnier or Carl Cox.
The Club Ofiveone building started out life as the Beer Keller and then became what we now know her as today. The club was one of the first ever rave clubs and was instrumental in creating what was to be the most important clubbing era in the history of clubbing. In the 90’s It quickly established itself as a leading club brand here in Liverpool at first by hosting big name American legend house DJS like Todd Terry, Tony Humphries to UK house masters Sasha, Dave Seaman and even the likes of Laurent Garnier who injected their own twist on what was to become such an iconic club with bands like Big Audio Dynamite and the Prodigy gracing that famous stage. Then, about 1993/4 Si Edwards, Dave Graham and Rusty stepped in to put their unmistakable mark on the club, and with Dave Graham sitting firmly in the promotors chair there began a new dawning of big monthly events at the club where big nights like Hells Party became the norm and clubbers travelled from far and wide to grab a piece of the amazing Scouse 051 action.
