With its 3/4 time signature, silky-smooth melodies and beautiful vocals from mysterious L.A collective Nevve, Flux Pavilion's “Lion's Cage” displays a confident progression for the Flux Pavilion sound. An exciting evolution, building on the dubstep smashers we had come to expect from the bass legend and a glimpse into an exciting musical direction, with the announcement of a new project underway.
Out now on Circus Records
That was 2019, and in 2020 we are excited to bring you two new perspectives on the track, with remixes from North Carolina bass producer, Heyz, and the self-proclaimed parents of EDM, the DJ/producer duo – Mom N Dad. With each providing a fun but hard edged spin on the tune, reimagining Flux's lush production with gritty bass and chopped vocals, we are excited for you to hear these fresh remixes of one of our fave tracks of last year.
Hot off the heels of his collab with bass juggernaut, Jauz, there’s no stopping Franky Nuts in 2020 as he continues his onslaught with another banger, “Time Is Running Out”, out now on Circus Records.
The new track picks up from where “Give It Up”, his much-loved collab with Doctor P, left off and builds on his previous efforts. Once again showing that he is the most revered artist in the melodic dubstep scene, “Time Is Running Out” features catchy vocal top lines, and his signature, instantly recognizable lead bass sound. His last release on Circus Records was his brilliant take on the Flux Pavilion hit, “Somebody Else” which is racking up the streams daily. 2020 is looking to be one hell of a year for Franky, with upcoming performances at iconic festivals and venues like Bootshaus Cologne and Rampage Belgium where he plays b2b with dubstep virtuosos, Oliverse & Chime, as well as more monster releases in the pipelines. We won’t be taking our eyes off him, and neither should you.
The Don Doctor P is back to drop pure fire with “Smoke & Flames,” featuring Manchester bass legends, Virus Syndicate.
P has come back strong after a huge 2019, including channeling his inner-Picto with drum and bass single “Voices,” big collabs with Franky Nuts and CRaymakand being the focus of many a remix, proving how highly regarded he is as a bass artist. Notorious for their fusion of UK hip hop and bass music,Virus Syndicate lend their vocals on this bass driven juggernaut of a track. With live dates across Europe, U.S. and Australia, and a string of releases with bass labels including “Disciple” and “Never Say Die,” the bass outfit are constantly pushing boundaries.
In 2012, Animal Mineral Vegetable Pt.1 was unleashed onto the world giving fans four tracks which helped change the landscape of bass music. Now 8 years on, we are excited to announce Part 2, featuring the colossal singles released over the course of 2019, plus previously unreleased heaters. Keep it locked for “Smoke & Flame,” out now, and Animal Vegetable Mineral Pt. 2 album in March 2020.
Conrank kicks off 2020 with new single “NO!,” joining forces with the Denver bass producer Mersiv. The track, a huge fan favorite, fuses both producers’ expertly crafted bass designs and has caused many throwdowns on the dance floor over the summer.
Conrank had a huge 2019, releasing track “Forget Today” on the UKF10 album celebrating 10 years of the massively influential bass channel, a remix from legendary drum and bass producer TC for “Drum In Time” and debut album “What’s a FKNG Conrank”. Not to mention a US and Canada tour of his own, even making time to join label mate Funtcase on his DPMO tour!
Mersiv has been making waves in the bass world for some years now with his Mersiv Sound Project, bringing his ‘pretty-dark-loud’ style of bass music to the masses. His latest single, “Beautiful & Filthy”, was released on renowned bass label Wakaan. He also embarked on a North American tour and released his EP “Digital Eden”. Be ready for January 17th 2020 when these two influential artists team up for “NO!”
A new face on Circus Records, Dallas’ Ace Aura makes his entrance with “Coma.” A friend and label mate of Circus’ very own Chime, who helped propel Ace Aura’s sound to the masses via his own label imprint Rushdown Records.
The Texan has spent the summer playing shows around the U.S, including supporting Pixel Terror in his hometown of Dallas, as well as playing his headline debut at Seattle's Trinity Nightclub. Ace Aura was also personally asked to support SVDDENDEATH at his two-night takeover at the Ogden Theater in Denver. He has released on key bass labels including Niney9lives and Disciple, and we are excited to now bring you this dubstep delight on Circus.
Bright chords that are underlined with an infectious sub bass and highlighted with distorted vocals, the track takes you on a journey you won’t want to miss. Welcome to the awakening.

Doctor P returns to his drum & bass roots with new track “Voices,” picking up where his alias DJ Picto left off. With the sort of huge day-glo riff and rock solid sonics we’ve come to expect from the Doctor, this track is sure to fill the dancefloors and resonate with dnb fans worldwide.
The track follows hot on the heels of “Give It Up,” Doctor P’s collaboration with Franky Nuts which featured on Spotify’s Friday Cratediggers, and gained support from 12th Planet, Krewella, Excision, Pegboard Nerds and more.”Voices” rounds off an exciting summer for Doctor P, who has been wowing crowds across the globe, including Lost Lands Festival in U.S where he played a legendary b2b2b with Circus Records brethren Cookie Monsta and FuntCase.
Ork¿d is summoning all of his sonic superpowers to animate the mesmerising 'Carrerilla', out now on Circus Records. Following “T_I_M_E_Y_” which came out earlier this summer, as well as his considerable body of previous work, he’s quickly amassing a succession of cultured fans swooning for his uniquely crafted music.
An artist in every sense of the world, it’s not just listeners who adore his palette of sounds, artists such as Circus Records own Flux Pavilion and DISKORD have been quick to jump on the hype, commissioning remixes from the Frenchman.

FuntCase is firing on all cylinders as he releases his first EP since 2013's Don’t Piss Me Off. Fans have been waiting, and here it is... the Next Chapter is out now on the legendary Circus Records.
Stream on Soundcloud HERE
“Without” feat. Dani Poppitt lulls listeners in with beautiful piano and vocal, but stay tuned and FuntCase treats us to his classic slashing bass and stabbing sonics. The aptly named “Devastation” closes proceedings in dramatic fashion, wrapping up a 2019 magnum opus of distorted filth.
Next Chapter also features the fearsome “Death Stomp,” a brutal bayonet of a tune co-produced with Versa which got blasted from the mainstay of Electric Zoo as inimitable Borgore went b2b with the colossal DJ Diesel. Also slotting in is the riotous “Get Em” alongside Flakzz, released as a single earlier this year and already getting love from 12th Planet and Zomboy, he had to bring it back for his new 4 track.
If bass had its own Mount Rushmore, the frightening face of FuntCase would be looming overhead alongside the very best sub merchants, and soon embarking on a North American tour bearing the name of his infamous DPMO series (so inspired by his initial EP), FuntCase is spreading his reign even further. Come down and witness the gruesome details of the Next Chapter in person.

DnB legend TC is taking on Conrank’s cult hit and festival firelighter “Drum In Time,” out now on Circus Records. Originally appearing on Conrank’s What’s A FKNG Conrank LP, the album was dubbed by UKF a “cross-section of everything that’s exciting about 140 music; gutter rifle drops, ravey breaks, neck-snap grime and all things in between.”
The Bristolian transforms the original into a rave ready melter. A veteran of the game, TC has already released several albums, each met with both commercial success and underground credibility. Performing all over the world to his extensive fan base, I’m sure they’ll be screaming out for this charged remix.
A special treat for loyal listeners, we’ve included one of our incredible competition winners on the B-side of this single. DYS of South Carolina can attest to having bassin their blood, being a brotherly duo, and the two of them combine in excellent fashion tearing apart Conrank’s “Hyper Sound” and smashing it back together to unbelievable effect.
Leaving listeners with little time to recover from his last seismic single, Flux Pavilion is back on it with “Surrender” featuring Next To Neon and A:M out now on Circus Records. His last two singles “Somebody Else” feat. GLNNA and his Marshmello joint “Room To Fall” feat. Elohim saw him feature amongst Spotify's biggest playlists such as 'New Music Friday Global', and 'mint', after only two weeks of release, they've already gone over 4 million streams.
Adding to this stellar single is Next To Neon, a Scandipop nominee for Best New Artist and Debut Single of The Year for his incredible 'Looking At You'. Fusing a sonic palette of 80s synths and modern pop vocals, he's turning heads everywhere he goes. Featuring on tracks for ALIUS, Wahlstedt, iamsimon, WATEVA, and Asher, his rise thus far has been astonishing. Exuding emotion and delivering hard lyrical punches, the glowing vocals of A:M adds the final level of sheen to this pristine single.
It’s been quite a 2019 for Pelikann, smashing his way on to the Circus Records roster and releasing a string of massive tunes, and he’s not even done yet. Our boy Pelikann just dropped his first EP for the label - Reboot. From his free release “Freak” with Purple Velvet Curtains to his early May banger “OMFG” his sound has attracted love from 12th Planet, Excision, DJ BL3ND, Figure, Reid Speed, Willy Joy and more.
Releasing with the likes of Saucy, UKF, Bingo Bass, In:Flux, and Holy Goof’s Globes, Pelikann has always always had a passion for heavy bass. Previously citing Flux Pavilion and FuntCase among his dream collaborators, a first EP on Circus seems fitting.
Circus Records is known for everything from pristine melodies to full-on bass mayhem, and few can straddle that boundary as confidently as Conrank. The international man of mystery would have a star on the Circus walk of fame for his slew of supreme bangers, and he’s adding one more to the pile with “Bubble & Run” feat. Patwan.
Last appearing for us on Conrank & Drezza collab “Decapitate,” Cardiff MC Patwan has since been on the grind, laying down bars forStagga, Killa Kela and Quartz among others. Following Conrank’s cover of Planet Perfecto’s “Bullet In The Gun” with vocalist Charmae, word has slipped a debut LP is on the horizon for the promising producer. Fans of his who have been treated to tracks with Dirty Monkey, Space Jesus, and Bassnectar in recent months, can celebrate in person catching him on any of several dates in the US this coming summer.
Kicking off our first new signing of the year, Circus Records is pleased to welcome the California-based Pierce to the label. With his debut EP dropping via Spinnin Records in 2016, along with a number of releases since, Pierce has an arsenal filled with hybrid bass, hard-hitting trap, and innovative sound design that has received support from big names such as Dillon Francis, Martin Garrix, Afrojack, Doctor P, and many more.
For his first release through Circus, Pierce offers the sub-slaying “Solar Eclipse,” which features vocals from up-and-coming Nottingham-based rapper Snowy, alongside an up-to-date flip of the classic Doctor P track “Big Boss.” With both tracks demonstrating the young producer’s unique take on bass music that is bound to rattle headphones and club systems alike, it’s very evident that Pierce is shaping up to be an unstoppable force in the scene throughout 2018.
After the success of his This Is Not Club Music EP on Circus Records at the end of last year, DISKORD reached out to Orkid to bring his signature future bass production style to their original work "Want U." French Producer Orkid, describes his sound as “‘Intergalactic Robot Orchestra' an atmospheric, future sound which ties in to his passion for 20th century science fiction.” His bright trap remix of DISKORD’s “Want U” is truly a top notch take of the track.
