Fuse London has become something of a byword for quality house music in the capital of late, with esteemed international players regularly joining the crew every Sunday at their beloved Brick Lane home. Fuse however, isn't a promoter whose popularity boils down to the calibre of their guest DJ's.
Instead, it's the precocious talents of their residents that occupy that particularly role. It's a tactic that's served them well too, and like all great residents, they're beginning to find their feet outside of their traditional environment. With all this in mind, if you've yet to encounter Fuse, (or even, if you want to discover more), then their inaugural release of this sort, 'Fusic Vol.1' can be considered a fitting snapshot of both the club's ethos and sound.
The results then, are as vehemently underground as you'd expect, not least from key protagonist Enzo Siragusa, who teams up with Luke Miskelly and the vocal talents of Stevie Kerr on opening track 'Changing'. Constructed on an airy, minimal tip and featuring a dreamy vocal, it's playful yet dour, and restrained yet catchy: a difficult trick to achieve yet one that's fulfilled with conviction here.
Occasionally sparse, oddball trippiness is then the order of the day on Ittetsu's piano led '1018': one of those tracks that yearns for a crisp sound system to be fully appreciated. Jun Akimoto's 'Do This' isn't too different, only this time it's even more bleak and ominous, with a haunting synth dominating matters. So while the latter pair showcase Fuse's more resolutely experimentalist side, the likes of Rich NXT's 'Serotonin Serenade' and Ben Rau's 'The City' are more indicative of the club at its energy laden best, as the atmosphere is brought up a notch - relentless beats and rolling percussion bringing us toward more familiar ground.
The best though, is left to last, as Alex Arnout and Seb Zito combine wonderfully on the luscious strands of 'Moments of You'. With positive vibes abounding courtesy of its swelling synths and all round classicist vibes, it makes for a fitting conclusion, and one that's certainly in keeping with Fuse's positive start to life as a label.

Release/catalogue number: FUSED00102. January Tuesday - True Love's Sake (Andre Lodemann Vocal Mix) [Miso | MISO018]
January Tuesday is a brand new project from Charles Webster and LA
vocalist January Thompson, this is their 1st e.p.
The e.p kicks of with the deep, smooth rumblings of 'our jewel',
juxtaposing dark atmospherics, bleak beats and filtered guitars with
pure, sweetly resigned vocals, the result is truly hypnotic .. in parts
quite reminiscent of Charles' now classic album 'born on the 24th of
'Our Jewel's' beauty and quality was immediately recognised by Warner Brothers who picked up the track for inclusion on there new hit t.v show 'the Secret Circle'
Next is 'true love's sake' with it's strangely, time signature
switching beats and raw sounds it is another deep, moody introspective
beauty of a song, prefect for these dark days.
After the original Charles Webster produced mixes we have a stellar
set of remixes, kicking of with a balearic beauty by Coyote (Is It
Balearic recordings), their 'Tropical Heat' mix, glides along,
blissfully building for over 6 minutes before they introduce the
vocals over their sneakily edited guitar patterns and dub bass, this
mix is set to be a beach/pool side classic.
Last but not least we bam up the tempo a little with Andre Lodemann's
mixes of 'true love's sake', Andre delivers his classic Berlin take on
deep, chunky house, using the vocal to full effect over swooping
chords and sequences and a killer octave bass line...pure class
!...and the whole thing is finished off with a lovely Lodemann
instrumental for the vocal-phobes out there.03. Alexander Daf and Spieltape - Be Water (Rodriguez Jr. Remix) [Festival Lounge Limited | FLL002]

To kick off 2012 and the label's 36th release, AlterImage Recordings welcomes back one of the biggest names in electronic dance music (EDM) of 2011, Peter Goylan, AKA, Lank! Lank brings the heat with this floor shaking tune along with a extremely fresh take by Barry Jamieson!
Between a slew of international gigs Lank has had a number of monster releases in the past year on labels like microCastle, Outside the Box and Baroque and makes his long awaited return to AIR with "Random Condom".
Random Condom is a techy and bouncy number that floats long with precise percussion and a melodic hook that will keep the dancefloor moving. Peter's production talents come though in every aspect, creating futuristic a sound a previous generation couldn't even dream of.
On remix duties is none other than Barry Jamieson. Barry's past work in the studio has lead to some of the biggest and most classic releases in EDM. Whether working with Sasha on the Involver series or creating the soundscapes of shows like the international CBS hit, CSI, Barry's talent is not easily matched and this shows in his incredible remix. Cutting edge, modern and still familiar, Barry takes Random Condom to another level that can only be described as “awesome” with fat basslines, moving drums and a perfect play on the original's hook.
This release represents the new sound of techno. Bending the best of the genre with a modern approach and clean sound, AlterImage is pushing the envelope for musical standards.05. Santi Mossman - Etheric Signal [Baires Records | Promo]http://soundcloud.com/santimossman/tracks
