Various Artists Fuse Presents Steve Bug
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Music Man
Germany's Steve Bug has always been something of an anomaly: A minimal techno DJ with a deep-house soul who managed to embody the divisions between his own trio of stylistically distinct labels (Poker Flat, Dessous, and Audiomatique). Bug's new Fuse mix skips through tech-house territory with trademark style: Big dancefloor tracks get heavily doused with techno and clean melodies, all expertly nestled within his easy manipulation of tricky rhythms. Johnny Dangerous' familiar refrain "Beat That Bitch" delivers an old-school house throwback, while Bug's own beat study, "Wet," is a standout rhythmic cut. A solid precursor to your next club night out.
