For DJ, producer and Circus label-head, Yousef, music has underpinned his entire life; throughout a turbulent and often uncertain childhood, music became a life defining outlet. Consolidating a difficult ten-year period from four to fourteen years of age, growing up in his Liverpool family home, 9 Moor Drive, Yousef explores contrasting themes of extreme difficulties, laughter and freedom.
“9 Moor Drive isn’t a bleeding-heart story about my hard times or anguish. It’s about dealing with life’s difficulties, and reminiscing about my life defining moments and thinking about that shattered boy who got up, from nothing, to do what he loves, and made it into his life” – Yousef
Make no presumptions, Yousef’s fourth studio album 9 Moor Drive is not a bleeding story of hard times and anguish, but rather a celebration of resilience, hard work and creativity.
