It's no secret that we're big fans of Fuse. The London party has gone from strength to strength over the past few years and the entire crew has proven that growing something organically is always the best way to go. And what's not to love about the brand? Its DJs are not only technically proficient with a sound that resonates through all their sets but they've all come up together through the ranks.
Helmed by Enzo Siragusa, what started out as a small, family-orientated party at 93 Feet East, is now a global affair and today we concentrate on two of the stable's most exciting names.
Rossko's rise to the top of Fuse's team sheet is one that's come from years of hard graft and dedication to carving a distinct sound and style. The only way of reaching these sorts of levels is through putting in the hours and once he swapped football boots for headphones, his path was clear. He ran several London parties and held a couple of key residencies, most notably at Public Life, but when he got the call from Fuse to join the brigade at their then Brick Lane home, that's when his calling was realised.
He's one of the few successful DJs on the circuit that's made his name through the immense quality of his DJing alone. He doesn't release any music, although he's worked on some cuts with Julian Perez in the past, and concentrates on his hectic touring schedule that sees him travel across the world. It may be an overused term but to call Rossko a DJ's DJ would just about sum him up.
One of Fuse's newest members is Archie Hamilton and here's another artist who's been lapping up his inclusion within the Fuse fold. Unlike Rossko, though, it's Archie's productions that have been his source of a progression. He started up Moscow Records in 2009 and it's been a hub for his groove-fuelled, low-slung tech and minimal, bumping productions.
