It's always nice to see hard graft pay off. Whether that's putting on a club night, running a label or meticulously pushing a sound without faltering. The epitome of hard graft can be seen in the work of Enzo Siragusa and the dizzy heights that he's taken Fuse to.
What started as a small, good-time party at 93 Feet East in 2008 is now a worldwide operation, one executed with military precision. The Sunday rave shot to prominence through its stellar residents and full-time dedication to a deep house and techno sound, one that's now become synonymous with the party.
Artists like Seb Zito, Rossko and Rich NxT have all been associated with the party since early doors and through staying true to the idea that every session should be one to remember, they've all shot to prominence hand-in-hand.
This sound that's become so popular through Fuse can only really be described as fucking floor-shaking. A deeper, darker, dubbier strain of house and techno that starts small and ends up colossal. It would make sense for the party to run a label that specialises in this unique hybrid and of course this is exactly what they did.
Enzo founded the Fuse imprint in 2011 and from then on, shit got real.
This is where Siragusa really shows that he's always had his eyes on the prize. 'The Sagamore' EP from the man himself was the first record to drop via the label and looking back, nearly five years later, it's still as fresh and as dancefloor-focused as ever. We've heard Fuse nights ended on this A-side and its slo-mo groove combined with sinister, creeping undertones, still does serious damage.
