Celebrating 10 years of refining its highly personal vision of underground electronic dance music, Paris’ Circus Company presents Snuggle & Slap, a two-CD compilation balancing contemporary house music with more idiosyncratic submissions. It’s more than just a label sampler: many of the artists included here appear two or even three times, having been afforded the opportunity to think beyond the dancefloor and experiment with new sounds, unusual styles, and secret passions. Hushed funk, feathery beats and spongy textures characterize Snuggle, while Slap snaps to attention with more insistent grooves straight to the heart of the label’s sweet spot: sumptuously detailed, swoonworthily deep house. Whether you’ve been following Circus Company for the whole decade or are only just now turning on, this collection of new, exclusive material is an essential portrait of one of the most dynamic labels around. Who’s on board? There are veterans from the label’s very earliest days, including Ark, Nôze, Dave Aju and Sety. There are folks that have joined in recent years, enlarging the label’s sound along with its roster: dOP, MyMy, Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts, Audio Werner, Antislash, Oleg Poliakov, Le K. And finally there are the most recent freaks to join the Circus: Berlin resident Ryan Crosson, New York’s Wolf+Lamb-affiliated Nicolas Jaar, and the German jazz/soul band Homewreckers. There are also a few familiar faces hidden behind names that might be new to you: Ezechiel Pailhes, who contributes a touching sketch for piano and voice, is one half of Nôze; Destination Danger is the pairing of Oleg Poliakov and Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts, and together they come up with one of the album’s most driving and hypnotic tracks. Circus Company’s Mathias Duchemin (aka Sety) sums up the project: “The concept of this compilation with to present our artists’ hidden sides. On the Slap side you’ll get their usual, dancefloor-oriented style. On the Snuggle side you’ll have the chance

Trevor Jackson: “I must say how wonderful the circus company compilation is! Almost too much good music in one package, the noze track boredom is astoundingly good perhaps as good if not better than kitchen, (which is saying something) the album is bursting with diverse ideas and personality, seriously deep in points but never losing a sense of playfulness of intelligent with musical without being pretentious, sonically adventurous and a downright thoroughly enjoyable listen i will highly recommend it to anyone who has the slightest interest in contemporary dance music and even more to those who have may of lost faith in the modern dance-floor. Will play it all to death”
Willie Graff: “Great compilation! Superb home listening and tripping cd.I like at first listen the songs from Nôze, Guillaume, Homewreckers, Nicolas Jaar... Look forward to part 2! Happy 10 years!!!”
