Circus's Easter Party with Carl Cox Review

Circus brought a veritable DJ fest to the Masque on Easter Sunday, with different genres of dance music coming from every available room, if dance music is your thing then this was the place to be. In the main auditorium warming up for Carl Cox was Liverpool's very own Yousef, who brought an initially laid back set rising towards a crescendo of beats and bass with a smattering of the sounds of Ibiza thrown in for good measure, which the crowd were loving and gave them a chance to get their dancing muscles warmed up in preparation for the legendary return of the daddy of dance music, Carl Cox.

It's been six years since Carl Cox has played Circus and from the first track to hit the deck, you could see he meant business. With the relentless rhythmic beat exuding from the speakers and his legendary "oh yes, oh yes,oh yes" shout out, he had the crowd bouncing for all their worth, carrying the transition from one track to another with a seamless fluidity throughout the set. Just when you thought he had taken the crowd to the peak, he upped the anti again and was joining in and quite possibly exuded more energy than the crowd. I have never seen a DJ who looks so happy to be doing this, every inch of this man seems to live for Djing and loves to see the crowd having just as much fun as he is.

You can see why he has become a legend in his own right and afterR over 20 years in the business he still has an amazing zest for it. Although I personally will never be converted fully to the dance side, there is no denying the fact that Carl Cox is an amazing DJ and definitely knows how to work that crowd and keep them wanting more and more.
