D:Fuse is a collaboration between DJs and instrumentalists

Part of the appeal of producing music with machines and expensive toys is that instruments and complex beats can be synthesized with the turn of a knob. Yet when a DJ's live set is more akin to checking e-mail than performing, technology can be a drawback. D:Fuse is bringing the live element back to his music with the DJs Are Alive project. The Scumfrog, DJ Skribble, Kristine W, and Static Revenger make up the DJ/band hybrid, where all members alternate spinning and playing instruments throughout the performance. D:Fuse's most recent release, People_3 (Moist Music), is a lofty attempt to capture the energy of real instruments by melding a live band with progressive and chill house tracks.
