Belgian techno club Fuse lays off the harder stuff to cosy up to minimal funkster Steve Bug for its latest compilation.
Fuse is Belgium's premier techno club, but those outside of Benelux probably know it for its compilation series 'Fuse presents', which has focused on the harder end of techno and electro. Previous volumes have included Dave Clarke, DJ Hell, Technasia and Joris Voorn.
Next up, however, is Poker Flat label boss Steve Bug, who brings his hypnotic minimal and funky tech house to the series. The sixteen tracks were edited by Bug in Ableton Live and incude classics such as Rhythim Is Rhythim's 'The Dance' and cuts from emerging producers Pier Bucci, My My and Efdemin. Martin Landsky, Guido Schneider and Vincenzo from Bug's Poker Flat and Dessous stables also appear.
