Yousef and his Circus Recordings label have publically voiced that they encourage demos from everyone, not just from label mates Carl Cox, Green Velvet or Reboot et al, but from all comers, to be sent to the Circus Recordings Facebook message inbox .
This track from the demo sending newcomer Louis Proud opens 2015 for Circus in positive way, not only for the artist that took the time to reach out, but ironically as the title of the lead track shows Yousef his true to his word to the demo sending hopefuls.
In its original version Louis cultivates a hybrid of house, techno, garage and even r&b textures in a truly original sounding way. As moving as it is quirky, another musical maneuver for Circus.
Opening proceedings Toronto legend Nathan Borato delivers an explosive remix, sharp drum, heavy toms, hooky yet nasty, and featured on Carl Cox’s recent live essential mix.
Next Art Departments label protégé Maher Daniel strips back his version No.19 style, filling his composition with melancholic moments and a pondering sentiment.
Last but far from least is one of 2014’s success stories, Bontan. With his firing tech house take on the original he shows once again why he deserved multiple beatport number one’s in the last 12 months.
