More Nostalgia – Electric Circus on MuchMusic

When I was in elementry and Jr high, I used to look forward to Friday nights.  Friday nights at 9pm in particular.  That was because Electric Circus used to be on Much Music.  Electric Circus was the live dance show dedicated to Club, House, and Trance music.  As far as I can remember, it was Monica Deol, who I had the biggest crush on, hosted the show.  Later on, when she left Juliet Powell hosted the show.  I would say that after Juliet left, the show and Much Music in general began its decline into crappiness.  Electric Circus was a good show in that it gave the mainstream access to music that wasn’t very mainstream.  Plus for those that lived in Toronto, it was a place to find out where all the DJs who came into town were playing.  I remember, during the late 90s, they began to have live chat rooms where you could talk to some of the dancers while you watched the show.  Electric Circus was one of the more unique shows on television at the time.  I think it was new years where they used to go upto Parliment Hill and have the show and dancers in front of the House of Commons.  The Wonderland Parties were always hype as well.  God I miss those days…well here are some clips for you guys to go back into time with. Enjoy!
