eFUSION: The new genre for 2016
The process of combining two or more distinct entities into a new whole.
For the past few years I have been battling the genre issues that came up with EDM, which actually signifies every genre in existence. That most people have not yet realized, that what is now called EDM is actually SoftStyle, is still a mystery to me. Just to be clear, I do not have anything against HardStyle, which is a power genre on it’s own. However it does not represent what I like in house music. Therefore I returned to the roots, and preferred playing Classic sets over EDM sets.
The issue that now arrives with playing only Classic sets, is that I did not expect it to be as popular as it turned out to be. More and more bookings are now pouring in for Classic sets, which is great. But how many Classics are there to be played, and how many times are you prepared to hear the same Classic tunes?
Then there is the question of challenge. In the early nineties I pressed on with Tribal in the world that was then known as Trance. Today every pop song is based on Tribal. The challenge now is how to go about making changes in the world of EDM, which I consider to be a greater challenge than before. By only playing Classic live sets, it will never present me with the opportunity to inspire and create a new genre that can possible be the future mainstream.
Fusion is basically the Classic set I normally play, but will also allow me to experiment with other genres, including new and old music. It also gives me the liberty to produce new music based on the Classics, but with the sound of modern music, mixed with multiple genres.
This is a breakdown of FUSION:
Classics, with the modern phat sound of EDM, the mystery and drive of the Techno, the sexy vibe of the Tribal, and the euphoria of Trance.
In layman's terms:
eFusion is the name for the future Katana Classic sets, and much more.
