V/A – Infuse 002 EP
Label: InfuseScore: 8/10
Fuse London has spectacularly bottled its essence again. Yes, Fuse London, hosts of renowned Sunday parties at 93 Feet East, started Infuse in March as a sub-label for associates to release their tackle. This heady second selection succeeds in presenting such a deeply insidious sound and vibe that the club’s atmosphere and raison d’etre is captured perfectly (even for those who haven’t been fortunate enough to go!).
Houmz’ ‘Clorophilia’ adds whale-bass undertow to dreamy Nu Groove keyboard shimmer, before Pat Ondebaak’s ‘Mountain’ manages to go earth-worm’s boner deep using just bass-heavy percussive richochet, chorale ‘ooh’ loop and string clip. Seb Zito and Enzo Siragusa remix Samu.I’s ‘The Traveller’ from Infuse001 into a subterranean groove masterclass, before Steve Abot’s ‘High Moon’ ignites the hypno-keks and subtle mayhem with sighing ghost sirens. The set closes with Mariano Mateljan’s Basic Channel-echoing dub-techno beauty ‘Deux Jours’, a soft voice over bottomless pulsing.
For lovers of the deep, this club sounds like heaven on Earth.
