As explosive as its name suggests, Fuse has been Belgium's number one techno outpost since it opened way back in 1994 - an era when Belgian techno label R&S was revered as one of the globe's most influential and innovative record labels. While flirtations with drum & bass and more recently dubstep (Oneman and Benga played last year) maintain an open-mind at Fuse, the club remains doggedly focused to intense, challenging and relentlessly funky techno with Dave Clarke, Jeff Mills, Robert Hood and Adam Beyer amongst the favourites here.
"For years Fuse has been Belgian's main techno clubs," remarks proud countryman Marco Bailey, who also promotes label parties for his MB Electronics here. "It's in good hands and run for the right reasons and never loses its faith in techno, which is why it's still here. With institutions like R&S Records and Fuse, our little country cannot be forgotten."
