Fresh off the back of an incredible summer that saw Enzo Siragusa’s FUSE camp successfully collaborate with HYTE at Amnesia Ibiza, the label boss is now ready to release his ‘Hard Steppers’ EP. Title track ‘Flexin’ has been carefully road tested by Enzo throughout summer and has been the clear winner on dance floors all round.
Enzo’s introduction to rave culture started as he attended his first Jungle raves in 1993, this is where his love affair with dubbier sounds began. He found himself inspired by the free form structure of Drum & Bass which he later took into his own productions and developed it into his unique dub house sound.
It started in 2012 with ‘As We Are’, when Enzo began his journey fusing a unique sound of cutting edge Techno and Drum & Bass. This soon progressed through the ‘Kilimanjaro’ series of releases with Alexkid and more recently his solo track ‘Desire’ where he really found the sound he was looking for. Forward to Autumn 2016, where the upcoming ‘Hard Steppers’ EP will become the pinnacle of this four year exploration.
‘Flexin’ is the darker of the two tracks and sees Enzo take his influences from the early Drum & Bass raves he attended heavily inspired by early Ray Keith & Andy C productions.
‘Jump Up’, exclusive to the vinyl lovers, has slightly more attitude, lending itself to the jump-up jungle sound of 1995, with a chilling female vocal added that make the hairs on your neck stand to attention.
