Not many parties have a following as strong as Fuse. The London club brand is one of the most respected in the city and that's because it's always a family affair. It's gone global as well and whether the collective are dominating Ibiza with their quarterly raves at Space, hitting up Amsterdam for ADE or sunning it up in Barcelona over Sonar week, the quality is always of a gold standard.
Sundays in London are when the party really explodes though. At Village Underground, the crew have found their sweet spot, pumping out rolling tech to an always-full room. As far as parties go on the 'day of rest', Fuse has to be one of the best. What started as an end-of-weekend rave up at 93 Feet East is now a global force to be reckoned with and that's down to the DJs.
With main-players Enzo Siragusa, Rossko, Seb Zito and Archie Hamilton in regular attendance, you always know what's in store: thick, brooding dance music that blends house, tech and dubby rollers into a night out that starts small but ends very big indeed.
The birthdays are always special too. Last year the sixth anniversary was one of our favourite parties of the year so we geared up for the seventh with high hopes, hopes that were then fully realised. We arrived at about 8pm and the room was already packed full and the tunes were as pumped as you'd expect.
Vibe-wise, spirits couldn't have been higher but that's always the case. If you go to Fuse, you go to party, there's no agginess, there's no pretentiousness, just a group of in-the-know party people who want to get down properly. This year's birthday featured sets from Anthony Difranceso, Archie Hamilton, Rich NxT, Seb Zito, Joseph Williams and of course papa Enzo.
We've got some of the best tracks that got played so you can re-live the madness. Here's to another year of beautiful Fuse beats.
