Aiming to make a name for themselves with an individual approach powered by a unique roster of artists, Fuse London are clearly enamoured with the hypnotic sounds of minimal, not least on the sinister stylings of the lead track from Rich NXT and Seb Zito. "Eyes Wide Open" is dominated by a thin but oppressive bassline, while the space around is peppered with disembodied sound effects and forlorn samples. "Eyes Won't Stay Shut" adds a little funk into the mix and expands upon that aforementioned bassline, but still the overall feeling is a very stripped back one. As such Alex Arnout and Enzo Siragusa's remix sounds positively full-fat, letting the drums flesh out and working some noticeable melodic content into the mix.
