Post pandemic first showcases from main record labels are running back in Europe. On that note, London-founded FUSE returned last month to Croatia and last Sunday to its home, where the new sister label Locus doesn’t stop raving. Enzo Siragusa and the gang took over Three Mills Island. Separated from London’s cityscape by canals on each side, a sun-drenched oasis, ideal space for a radiant Open Air.
Resident and NxT Records owner Rich NxT was the man in charge of playing the first record alongside the newcomer talented Rossi for three hours, back to back. It’s not the first collaboration between this pair, even in the studio. Rossi. was one of the artists who remixed Rich’s new album, and they connected in and out of the booth. Following suit, straight from Romania, Praslea, also known as Praslesh on his alter ego alongside Raresh, took the decks for a majestic set, laced with clockwork precision and smooth selection.
Five to five, and the most popular trio DJs on the underground scene arrived on the stage. Dyed Soundorom, Dan Ghenacia, and Shonky, best known as Apollonia, representing new beginnings based on a solid family that has already done much to shape the underground house scene. Their particular brand of french house made the crowd get a kick out of their 3-hour extended set. After a masterclass in front of over 7000 people, the label boss Enzo Siragusa was ready to share his vibes until the closing with his intoxicatingly groovy tracks. The chief has built a formidable family of artists, all with a similar grounding to him and it could be seen in the booth.
Three Mills End closed the doors and the FUSE showcase continued at Oval Space with renowned guests. One-third of Apollonia, Dan Ghenacia, will spearhead proceedings, alongside long-time FUSE favorites Ferro, D’Julz, and Annie Errez.
