A new 3 track ep from the boss at Circus Recordings.

1. Believe in Love feat Roy Davis Jr
2. Just a Beat
3. What is Revolution (Acid Mondays remix)

A seemingly relentless flow of creative activity continues for Yousef in 2013.

An endless global touring schedule, showing the world his authentic, and live 3 deck Djing dexterity, a man at ease in front on 10000 people, as he is 100. Ibiza to Indonesia, Argentina to America, South Africa to South Korea, few corners have been untouched this in 2013.

As well as new music on forthcoming Loco Dice's impressive Desolat imprint, this year Yousef has released music on Crosstown Rebels, Get Physical, Defected, remixing Carl Cox, and gravitating his own Circus Recordings to a remarkable level by releasing this years biggest underground track, Green Velvets "Bigger Than Prince".

Yousef’s collaboration with The Angel, the anthemic "Float Away" released on FFRR/Warners/Big Beat Records was this summers Ibiza hidden treasure and is still simmering

3 Yousef singles for Defected appeared in the last year, “Think Twice”, "I See" (ADE week Buzz Chart #1) and of course “Beg” which sat at the top of the Beatport charts for 10 weeks.

His record label Circus Recordings continues to spread its message of the best in underground house and techno at an alarming rate, signing heroes like Reboot, Carl Cox, Green Velvet and re surfacing the super talented Harry Romero, as well as developing fresh names like Acid Mondays, David Glass and Horatio, building a strong platform for Yousef’s own music.

Here Yousef’s is back on the dance floor with 3 cuts that have been turning heads all summer long.

'Believe in Love' features the legendary vocal of Roy Davis Jr who once again, asks the world a poignant question. A rolling, infectious and gnarly groove develops and unfolds into a long and harmonic breakdown, and then of course a blistering crescendo. Designed to be for the heads but still enough action for the people that follow Yousef’s more musically trickier offerings.

'Just a Beat' in exactly that. Yousef busts out a stripped back boogie bass over tight drums and oddball acid. No messing around, heads down, hands up.

'What is Revolution' is taken within an inch of its life by Circus label mates Acid Mondays. Remixing one of the stand out cuts from Yousef’s recent “a product of your environment’ artist album, the Mondays show how to bring authentic house music into the 21st century.
