Progressive Mix Session

Moonshine seems to be directing much of its attention to the mix CD market, focusing on different sub genres of club music. One of their Trance mix contributors, Austin-based DJ, D:Fuse was busy spinning all over Texas and received his break during the 1998 Moonshine Over America tour when he dropped a tape to Moonshine President, Steve Levy. Shortly thereafter Moonshine relaunched the Psycotrance mix series featuring D:Fuse on the decks and his DJ career was pushed along, joining Paul Oakenfold on his North American tour and completing his third mix CD for Moonshine.

The twelve tracks on the album including tunes from D:Fuse himself, are strong Trance and breaks numbers. Each are ideal club tracks, the production is hypnotic, unrelentless like it should be and D:Fuse builds a tight and fluid set that peaks furiously during the ballistic "Dutch Drum Attack" by E Craig. The mix was inspired by D:Fuse's residency at San Francisco's Release club and he has obviously been influenced by both Oakenfold and Carl Cox during his tours with them. The popularity of Trance seems to be at an all time high stateside. So D:Fuse's mixing talent, demonstrated here, is obviously going to be in big demand over the next few years and you can expect to hear a lot more from and about him in the future. Urb magazine seems to think so, check out the D:Fuse mention in their usually correct Next 100 issue. - Justin Hardison
