It's no wonder that the little nation that birthed new beat, 2manyDJs and The Glimmers has its share of decent clubs. H20 Club, La Rocca and Cafe D'Anvers each have fans in their own right, but it's Fuse in Brussels that remains in this poll, as others have been forced out by the strengthening of external dynamics outside of their control. Posterity is one reason.
Fuse as a dance club came to being in '94 as Belgium's first-ever venue dedicated solely to techno, but the musical history of this former cinema dates back further, to its time in the '70s as a twin ballroom. Another factor is Fuse's dedication to its cause. Set up by Peter Decuypere, the same man behind I Love Techno, the club's designated sound still pumps through its veins thanks to bookings like Marcel Dettmann, Loco Dice and Josh Wink.
