Electric Circus Celebrates Ten Years

On Saturday 29 April 2017 Electric Circus celebrates a decade of high voltage events with a fittingly momentous celebration at Truth in Midrand. The 10-year celebration will offer party-goers a line-up featuring over 30 acts including special imports Ardalan, John Monkman and Juliet Fox.

Not stopping there, the event promises to double the Electric Circus experience by running from day into night for the very first time.  By day Truth’s expansive carpark will be transformed into the ultimate fun-fair complete with Big Top Main Stage held inside a mammoth circus tent. Expect circus performers, games, candyfloss, popcorn and a food market. By night the action will move into the club where DJs will play on 5 floors – electronic music lovers can look forward to the world class production they’ve come to expect.

HEADLINER PROFILES

Ardalan
Based in: San Francisco, US
Label: Dirtybird

Range, appeal, and a massive dose of nasty, gritty bass are the three chief weapons every Dirtybird artist has in his or her quiver, but Ardalan seems to be the peak culmination of all those assets in one wieldy point. This young archer has had the incomprehensible luck to fall into crew with his idols, be reared by their best and given some of their most guarded musical secrets, then hoisted to a platform to blare his prodigious beats from places where most creators can only dream of being.

The greatest strength in Ardalan’s music is his ability to whip out hits that work equally well from the dankest basements to the most opulent dance-floors; sounds that satisfy those with diverse tastes who can unite under his single agenda of having a good time.

John Monkman
Based in: London, UK
Releases on: Beesemyer Music, Kompakt, Crosstown Rebels & Get Physical

John Monkman has been part of the international electronic dance community for over a decade.

His superb track record boasts releases on an eye-watering list of the world’s biggest and most cutting edge labels. His releases frequently claim Beatport’s number one spot and become staple weapons amongst the world’s top house and techno DJ’s including the likes of Pete Tong, Seth Troxler, Laurent Garnier, WildKats, Martin Roth and many more.

Monkman’s output is repeatedly featured on high profile radio shows like the Essential Mix and on prestigious compilations.  His tracks are bold and unpretentious with plenty of lush texture and detail for DJs whose priority is to create electric atmosphere and energy in a club.

Juliet Fox
Based in: Berlin, Germany
Releases on: Toolroom, Cajual and Suara

Juliet Fox has brought to life what one can only describe as infinite grandeur. Uplifting the best from the tones of techno, deep and tech house, it’s with no qualms that this dramatic profile in DJ, producer and radio presenter pirouettes around her pursuit from Miami to Ibiza. Originally from South Australia, the belle of the booth has stolen hearts of dance floor fanatics globally touring her flawless music package from the north to the south, and now currently residing in Berlin.

Although Juliet is recognized as highly accomplished DJ, it is on the production front where her creativity really shines. Showcasing her innate musicality, Juliet uses her own vocals in a unique style to create deep, dark techno and tech house with an addictive edge. Her undeniable flare has resulted in collaborations with the likes of Green Velvet, Coyu and Sonny Fodera not to mention accolades such as an overall No.1 on Traxsource.
