A selector, producer and label head at the top of his game, Enzo Siragusa continues to prove exactly why he’s held in such high regard as a staple of the underground music scene. While developments have seen the FUSE boss adjust his approach, recent months have combined a wealth of studio time with the unveiling of new projects – most recently announcing the launch of his new genre-bending all-night-long event series, E:DIMENSION. Yet, there’s something about a release from Siragusa on home turf that stands out amongst the pack, with productions like ‘Sagamore’, ‘Desire’, ‘Flexin’ and the ‘Kilimanjaro’ cuts instantly recognisable after just a few seconds, and the same looks set to happen as he makes his highly-anticipated return with his first solo material on the label for over two years. Unveiling one of his most heavily requested tracks to date alongside further peak-time business on the flip, April finally welcomes the arrival of the two-track ‘Nothing Matters’.
“After almost a year hiatus on the FUSE London label and 2 years since my last FUSE release – it’s time to bring it back this April. The last few years were a time of introspection forced on us all. A lot changed in that time for me. Playing records to people and being in raves has always been my main source of inspiration, and without it, I was a bit lost. It was important to take this moment to step back and reconnect with my sound, think about what I want to do with the label and where to take it, both musically and as the product that I want to stand the test of time.
Relaunching the label with a special release that I’m very proud of gives me the perfect opportunity to present a new look, feel & sound from me. FUSE048 and releases to follow will have heavier weighted and limited press vinyl, brand new full artwork & sleeves, and as for the sound – you’ve probably heard these tracks at raves over the past year!” – Enzo Siragusa
A track that’s been making waves for months, ‘ICV (Double Flake Mix)’ brings the sub-shaking, cavernous reese bassline now captured by many across the globe as Siragusa launches into his signature blend of heads-down, hands-up sonics, while the vinyl-only dub delves into afterparty territories to offer up an exclusive version for wax owners. On the flip, title cut ‘Nothing Matters’ graces the B-Side and keeps things moving as meandering melodies ride rumbling low-ends, swinging drums and chunky grooves to shape up proceedings in emphatic fashion. It’s safe to say Siragusa’s back, and he’s back like he never left.
