Artist’s Biography

The Londoner is the mastermind behind one of the

capital’s most infamous party brands, Fuse – an event which he has used to cultivate an

unmistakeable sound, attracting a loyal, dedicated following in the process. His roots lie in

jungle and drum n bass, that pure, undiluted sound which sprung up from London’s inner

city in the mid-nineties. Enzo still holds true to many of the aspects of 90’s UK rave culture

that made it so special and carries them into his current output. So, whether he’s DJing,

making beats in the studio, hosting another sellout Fuse event or letting loose on the

dance floor, you can be sure it’s always fuelled by a desire to perpetuate the culture that

changed his life.

As a teen in the mid-nineties Enzo was just as devoted to the dance floor as he is now. His

first rave was at the legendary Sanctuary in Milton Keynes in 1993, where cult raves like

Dreamscape and Helter Skelter were held on a regular basis. Enzo’s experiences there left

an indelible impression on him; from the power of the music and the sound systems, to the

experience of being connected to a diverse yet unified crowd. This formed the foundation of

his current ethos; maintaining an equal balance between 1) music and sound, 2) community

and 3) the environment, i.e. the club itself. These three core aspects are the pillars of Fuse

and Enzo’s rave philosophy and undoubtedly what have made it so successful.

A healthy obsession with music led to a very expensive vinyl addiction, and was the

catalyst behind his early forays into DJing. Over 20 years on, his enthusiasm remains

resolute and has helped elevate him to an impressive position, breaking into Resident

Advisor’s Top 100 poll for the first time in 2015. Gigs at influential clubs like Panorama Bar

in Berlin, DC10 in Ibiza, SubClub in Glasgow, Mint Club in Leeds and Robert Johnson in

Frankfurt cementing his status as a potent force in today’s scene. Stand out parties with

Fuse at Space in Ibiza proved to be hugely successful and his relationship with the White

Island will continue, with gigs further afield across Europe and the US.

Fuse is now a part of the fabric of London’s club scene. Starting out as a cheeky Sunday

after hours, it has grown into a world-renowned party which holds true to what many refer to as a pure London sound. His meticulous attention to detail is focused mainly on the

sound first and foremost, understanding the effect that precision can have on the dance

floor. If you’ve never been to Fuse before and you don’t even know who’s on the lineup,

you’re sure to leave with the party etched into your memory banks forever, thanks primarily

to the potency of the sound.

Around the party, Enzo has built a formidable family of artists, all with a similar grounding

to him. Artists who were ravers before anything else: Seb Zito, Rich NxT and Rossko are a

few of the core members of the Fuse clan. By keeping this tight circle of artists

representing the Fuse name, Enzo has instilled a strong identity into Fuse, which fans

around the world travel to London to experience for themselves.

In line with the party brand, Enzo also heads up Fuse London and Infuse, two record labels

which act as a channel for the music produced by himself and the Fuse family. Since their

inception both labels have become a home for bass-heavy house works from artists

including Archie Hamilton, Einzelkind, Dan Farserelli, Ben Rau and many more.

In the studio Enzo’s love for dynamic sound is also clearly evident. Heavy bass licks and

crisp percussion form the foundation of his productions, which have maximum impact and

blur the lines between drum n bass, techno and house.

In 2016 Enzo received the ultimate seal of approval, taking part in Pete Tong’s famous BBC

Radio 1 trademark, the Essential Mix. What followed was two hours of non-stop, floorshaking

house and techno, brought to you and inspired by the gritty alleyways of

London’sEast End, proving that hard work does pay off.

Over 20 years deep and still as passionate, enthusiastic and obsessive as ever, Enzo

Siragusa continues to inject his ideals into his output. Building a community around Fuse,

while maintaining a successful solo career and producing elevating sounds in the studio.

Always smiling, he’s a man who has a created a London institution and he’ll be involved in

rave culture for a long time to come…
