DJ, producer and Circus event/label-head, Yousef announces his fourth studio album ‘9 Moor Drive’ along with an open stream of album track ‘Riches To Rags’. Opening the door to his turbulent and often uncertain childhood, the album will explore contrasting themes of extreme difficulties, laughter and freedom. Named after the address of his Liverpool family home, Yousef will take listeners on a journey through a difficult ten-year period from the age of four to fourteen years old, living at 9 Moor Drive.
“9 Moor Drive is autobiographical, but it isn’t a bleeding-heart story about hard times or anguish. It’s about dealing with life’s difficulties, exploring creativity and reminiscing about my life’s defining moments. It is the final piece in a long cathartic process about those times” – Yousef
Yousef’s time at 9 Moor Drive has shaped the person he is today, instilling in him the passion and drive to do what he loves. Through the album he reflects on the hard times he faced, whilst also celebrating the resilience and boundless creativity he now bestows.
Setting the tone of what’s to come, album track ‘Riches To Rags’ points directly to the financial decline of Yousef’s family life at 9 Moor Drive.
The album will be released August 16th and can be pre-ordered here.
