“I’ve been doing 15 fucking gigs a month!” exclaims a slightly exasperated Enzo Siragusa. “Plus I’ve had a massive shift in my family circumstances, so it’s been pretty hectic,” he adds, still seemingly processing what has been his biggest year to date. “I’m not gonna sit here complaining about it, though, because I’m living the dream.”
His passport says it all. A mini-tour of America in October followed Hungary, Tunisia, Greece, Croatia and Dubai in the summer. Add to that Moscow, St Petersburg, New York and Dublin all ticked off along the way, and you start to get the impression that 2016 was pretty action packed for the 38-year-old. And it’s the clubs that take this party business most seriously that have led to the best experiences: Goa in Rome, Rex Club in Paris, The Block in Tel Aviv. Anyone who knows Enzo will attest to his borderline obsession with impeccable sound, so playing such highly regarded clubs that take fidelity to extremes has reinforced the fact that he really is living his dream. High quality sound is the cornerstone of his Fuse parties, which marked eight years of service to London club culture in 2016 – another huge milestone considering the challenging circumstances party promoters face in the Capital.
