Fuse on a bank holiday Sunday is becoming something of an institution. Each event features the increasingly talented Fuse residents lining up with some of the most respected artists on the international circuit. For this end of August session Fuse have drawn on the considerable talents of two classically trained artists, Desolat’s Argentine wonder Guti, and rising French star Seuil. With a heavyweight turn out of Fuse residents including Enzo Siragusa, Alex Arnout, Rich NXT and Seb Zito, it’s going to be a day for music lovers, true ravers, and those keen on tuning in to an uncompromisingly deep, raw sound.
Eight years of playing piano, jazz and blues provided Seuil with a strong classical background. However it was coming across the undeniable underground sounds of Perlon that first turned him on to electronic music. From there he has gone on to establish his own sound, which always features of a heavy bassline, obscure sounds and a groovy spirit. His productions have been snapped up by discerning labels like Raum, Freak’n’Chic and Moon Harbour. His live set is devastating; however it’s his equally powerful DJ skills that will be present at this Fuse Bank Holiday Rave.
Music flows through Guti’s blood. A classically trained jazz virtuoso, he is also a national rock’n’roll hero in his home, Argentina. Having taught himself how to play piano at five, and being born into a deeply musical family, it was not so much a question of if he would play, but what he would play. Though it’s likely that nobody would have foretold he’d become one of the most exciting and original producers of electronic music today. He has filled the past few years with releases and remixes for a host of great labels from Desolat to Wolf + Lamb, with support coming from Loco Dice, Marco Carola, Ricardo Villalobos and Luciano. His engaging live sets embody his production sound of creative electronic music that stays true to his jazz and Latin roots.
The sonic heart of Fuse, Enzo’s unique sound and musical vision has shaped the party from day one. You only need to listen to one of his sets to gain an understanding of why Fuse is the party it is today. Constantly one step ahead, his intuitive style always has the dance floor locked deep into his groove. His depth and range of music ensures an original set whenever he plays, no two sets are the same, but each one is always does the business. This year he has played both Fabric and also Bar 25 in Berlin, each time stealing the show at these clubbing mecca’s. However nothing compares to hearing him at 93, and with such a great musical line up to vibe off, this will surely be another special set.
Whether DJing, producing, or running his label, Alex Arnout shows a respect and understanding for quality underground dance music, in all its forms. At the turn of the millennium he co-produced the classic broken-beat track ‘Higher’. Then just a few years later, back on a house tip, his co-produced re-edit of ‘Can U Dance’ made waves across the world, with major support from the likes of Danny Tenaglia and Sasha. Throughout this time he has built up serious respect as a DJ playing Fabric in London, as well as clubs in Barcelona, Ibiza and Tokyo. He is always a reassuring and inspiring presence in the DJ booth at 93 Feet East, and will no doubt rock this Bank Holiday Rave like he does every time he plays for Fuse.
A natural musician Rich is equally at home on a keyboard or playing the drums, as he is in a DJ booth. Since becoming a DJ he has acquired a distinctive style which can be used to great effect either as a main set or in the murky trippy moods of an after party. His Fuse residency over the past couple of years has coincided with a fruitful period of music production with notable releases on Mighty Rumble and No. 19 Music. Rich currently has some outstanding music waiting for release, music that embodies his deep, warm and driving sound, a sound that you should take the chance to enjoy at this Bank Holiday Rave.
Ever since Seb first discovered underground electronic music in 94, he has evolved right through many rave scenes. He has forged a strong house and techno sound since establishing himself as a resident at Fuse, however echoes of a more raw sound still permeates his music to devastating effect. A true raver himself, he has a natural affinity with the dance floor which he uses intelligently to build a connection and then taking the crowd deep into his own sound and space. His releases on Off and Monique this year have had a great reaction being supported by the likes of Richie Hawtin, but even better is yet to come as Seb translates his uncompromisingly raw and powerful DJ style into music productions of the highest order.
