Egg London Friday 24th May 2013
As a fixture on the capital’s clubbing scene since 2003, Egg London clocks up a heady decade of activity with a full month of shows all set to showcase the stunning variety of the club’s musical output. Lasting twelve months in the modern clubbing landscape is an accolade worthy of renown, so making ten of those timeframes, in the most hyper competitive city on the planet, is one certainly worth doffing your cap towards – May 2013 will be a month that rightfully basks in that achievement.
With the venue undergoing refurbishment, Egg London will be transforming the cavernous and intimate surroundings with extended dancefloors, re-jigged smoking areas and world class soundsystems building on the venue’s endearing qualities. Circus themselves hit the same figure last year, and consequently has pulled together a monumental bill to celebrate – Laurent Garnier joining Yousef all night long.
Arguably the most loved of all the guests to play at Circus in its litany of residencies over the years, Garnier rightfully remains revered across the full spectrum of dance music. He retired his LBS project last year at both Circus Liverpool and London, and his history of extended sets for Circus stretches as far back as 2004 and numbers several epoch defining moments. Special occasions call for special measures, and few can match Laurent’s ability to bring poignancy and emotion to the forefront via his extended journeys through sound.
In fact only one man has been capable of doing that at Circus consistently – Yousef. Like Laurent he too has commanded the attention of the Circus dancefloor for the entire evening on numerous occasions, joyous excursions through every facet of house and techno for a fully panoramic insight into not only his musical personality, but that of the club itself.
