album of the week
A Decade of Rave
15 / April / 2019
“My love for London’s most fertile period of rave culture in the ‘90s is the heart of FUSE. Starting at our original home of 93 Feet East where we revived a sense of how incredible clubbing was back then, giving a stand out experience to our community similar to that which left such an impression on me when I stepped into my first rave in 1993. Over the last decade myself and the FUSE residents have nurtured this melting pot of influences that we experienced in the London scene and poured it into our party and the music we make. The label is ultimately a reflection, it’s the music that feeds our dance floor and is the distinct identity we’ve worked hard to cultivate.” – Enzo Siragusa.
Enzo Siragusa adds fuel to FUSE’s milestone 10-year anniversary with the release of a metamorphic album that draws influence from the London institution’s cultivated sound, as well as the capitals ‘90s rave heritage that so heavily influenced their decade-long dominance.
On A Decade of Rave, Enzo presents a cross section of his sound - one that has refined this fusion of jungle roots with house, creating eight straight-talking dance floor cuts that capture the essence of FUSE raves over the years, and two ambient tracks that lean on lengthy quests behind the decks. The music spans across two years of studio sessions and exhibits Enzo and the FUSE label’s biggest work to date.
Starting with ‘Good Night’ signalling the beginnings of an all-night-long set and showcasing Enzo’s range in the studio as well as the booth. Then shifting through ‘Beautiful Emi’, ‘Stromboli’, ‘Mixed Emotions’ and ‘Paradigm Shift’ all geared in their own way towards the many faces of house music.
Interlude ‘Lost and Found in 93’ is the bridge that crosses to the bass heavy second half of the album.
‘Voodoo’, ‘Deeper Inside’, ‘Rollin’ Riddm’ and closing track ‘Mysterious’ see Enzo tap into Jungle, ‘90s hardcore and garage becoming clear they were made with the early days of FUSE at 93 Feet East in mind. Big basslines and big breakdowns are the common denominator with the intricate minimal twists that so often characterise FUSE’s sound.
