For 11 months of the year here in Ibiza, you can pretty much guarantee we have a steady stream of dance, electronic, chillout and ambient music coming out of our speakers. The festive season however, is the exception. Just like everywhere else in the world, we want to hear Christmas carols being crooned and jingle bells being rocked!
To our rescue this month is DJ Yousef, who has taken time out from the studio (and he’s been busy! Check out the new EP for Monique Musique, Yousef Circus reworks of Gary Beck ‘Yes’ on Bek Audio and Kaiserdisco ‘In no one’s shadow’ on MBF) to bring us this month’s podcast, a very special mix of Christmas songs to get you into the holiday spirit. ‘Some you’ll know and some you may not,’ he says of his cool yule selection. ‘I’ve thrown in some samples from my favourite Christmas films as well.’

That’s Christmas day sorted then… For those who want to experience more festivities with Yousef, there are still tickets available for his annual Circus Christmas Party on December 27 at The Masque, Seel St, Liverpool. On the line-up is the who’s who of Ibiza’s favourite DJs, including Yousef, Steve Lawler, Paul Kalkbrenner, Joris Voorn, Simian Mobile Disco, Greg Wilson and Lewis Boardman. But don’t expect to hear any Christmas carols – it’s strictly come dance floor for this event!
Have Yousef a very Merry Christmas!
