The Eclectic Circus

From 10-12pm GMT on the first Thursday of the month, DJs Paul Hughes and Adrian Luvdup will present our (un)usual mix of inane jibber jabber and excellent eclectic musical selections.

The Eclectic Circus is the non de plume of “semi-retired” Acid Housers Adrian Luvdup (of 90s “Luvdup Twins” fame) and Paul Hughes (of the much-loved post-Electric Chair “Last Rights” parties), eclectic and eccentric DJs of many a year’s experience and presenters of the much loved Eclectic Circus Wireless Show on Cowbell Radio, described by the lads as “acid house for grown-ups, balearic bounders, rankin’ rapscallions, clued-up lovelies, soul-boy scoundrels, terrace dandys and their molls...”

The show, which was launched five years ago, is notorious for its mix of eclectic but excellent dance music, interspersed with the bizarre musings of its two Northern presenters. With an ever increasing and loyal following, The Eclectic Circus Wireless Show is possibly one of the best kept secrets in radio land for those who have yet to discover it’s surreal charms.

When the boys are coaxed out of the studio to DJ, you are guaranteed a “proper” party indeed – always ones to practice what they preach, their legendary boat parties and “basement balls” are nights not easily forgotten, an intoxicating blend of messy, unbridled brilliance (both musically and atmospherically) which both the DJs and unsuspecting party-goers can take days to recuperate from!

Here’s what a few well-known dance bods have had to say about the Eclectic Circus…

"What I really like about it is that whilst on the one hand the show’s got a great knockabout feel to it, it's presenters really know their shit and play some top tunes, so you’ve got that balance between entertaining and informing, which is a compelling combination."
- Greg Wilson

"Fucking hilarious.

Viva Bastardo!

What to expect:

Whether you're getting ready to go out or you're staying in we'll provide the soundtrack to your Saturday night. Very much in the same vein as a dj set we'll start off with some more laid back sounds and then gradually work you up into a cowbell frenzy and have you dancing around your living room.

With no particular emphasis on genre just good music, expect to hear tracks from right across the spectrum encompassing everything from hip-hop, funk and house to techno and even a little bit of Krautrock.

Your Hosts: JT & Hunty...having met on the dance floor at Cream over a decade ago we've been great friends and dj'ing together ever since.
