FROM LIVERPOOL TO MEXICO: YOUSEF CAPTURES THE HEART AND SOUL OF EDC MEXICO 2020 WITH HIS ‘LIVE AT NEON GARDEN’ MIX COMPILATION
Are you missing those festival vibes as much as I am? Well now, you can relive those vibes by listening to this live from EDC Mexico set! Yousef today shares his ‘Live At Neon Garden’ Mix Compilation in collaboration with Insomniac Records. Together they present 120 minutes of cutting edge house and techno. For example, this includes a wealth of exclusive and unheard material designed especially for this set.
The set was recorded live in front of 26,000 people on the Neon Garden Stage of EDC Mexico 2020. This was Yousef’s final set before the world changed indefinitely and one of his finest to date. The set stands out as a very special moment in time for the EDC audience and Yousef. Together they celebrated the real value of togetherness & community, whilst creating a moment that can only be shared on the dancefloor. The mix also sees promoters Insomniac deliver their first-ever live recorded compilation. How awesome in that?
Yousef has labeled this set as ‘career-defining moment’. For instance, it brought together all the elements that gave him the feeling of complete and utter control & mastery in Mexico. He has 4 studio albums. In addition, Yousef has countless releases on high-profile labels and a successful events and label branch of his Liverpool based Circus brand. Yousef has driven all of his experience into this set in Mexico. Over recent years, Yousef has developed a very special connection with the Mexican audience through his residency at EDC Mexico. This debut ‘Live At Neon Garden’ Mix Compilation captures the essence of Yousef’s DJ sets. They are raw, spontaneous moments mixed with mesmerizing song selection.
“This was the best gig I’ve ever done in 20 years of touring, the excitement and electricity and connection with the audience was like nothing I’ve ever felt. It happened to be the very last set I played before the world changed. I feel honoured that I got the opportunity to share this moment with so many people, which was likely their final dance too. I’m so happy that we got to record this set with the audience featured so the world can hear what a special crowd and atmosphere it is there. I gave absolutely everything to this set, and as always, the Mexican fans gave it right back to me.
I can’t wait for people to hear this” – Yousef
