Last year, long time Circus events and Circus Recordings fan Bontan reached out to Yousef to offer his remix services, the result was the explosive Bontan remix of Louis Prouds So Many Promises, now one of Circus Recordings most successful releases.
A new friendship was born and whispers of a collaboration where heard
Not long after, while working on his 3rd album, Yousefs in the process of eight, the label owner felt he needed a twist on a vocal track he was working on.
A short chat later and Yousef was on his way to visit Bontan in his home studio with the sultry vocals of the The Angel ready to be recreated.
The result is a meticulous, yet stripped back, mature sounding fiery vocal track. Nasty drums, relentless bass ride a poignant vocal that shimmers through the backdrop of authentic house.
The full release comes with 3 elegant and timely remixes from Timo Maas, Denney and ANNA.
Yousefs contribution to dance music is quite compelling, Owner of the world renowned Circus Events and Circus Recordings, a global touring DJ for 15 years, releases on Cocoon, Bpitch Contol, Desolat, Cecille/8bit, Objektivity, Defected, Intec, Saved, Harthouse, Terminal M and more 3 full artist albums, a radio show with over 250+ global FM stations, a mentor to new artists and an authentic decktition like few others
Bontan has emerged from the house music renaissance to become one of the most respected new school DJs on the circuit. Channeling 25 years of house history into a forward thinking mindset seems effortless and the results speak for themselves. Big tracks and remixes for Circus, MTA, Cajual, Toolroom, DFTD, MadTech and Ultra are just the start of what this charming young producer is capable of and with full support from gatekeepers Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Danny Howard on BBC Radio One hes able to amplify his successes so theres no limit to what he can achieve.
