Seb Zito’s approach to tech house is quite uniquely his own. Taking a slightly more ‘dubby’ approach to the genre, Zito keeps the listener grooving without any excessive build ups or over zealous effects. Seb can be found rubbing shoulders with tech house master and FUSE co-owner Archie Hamilton, and he not only regularly plays at London and Ibiza’s FUSE event series, but he is also the head of A&R for the brands sub-label inFUSE.
Seb’s most recent EP has come in the form of ‘I Like It’ (signed to Seven Dials Records), his music has also been signed to Rawax, VL Recordings and of course FUSE. The last time we saw Zito he was playing Victoria’s Pitch Music & Arts and Sydney’s Days Like This Festival, this time around it’s a more intimate affair with three club shows across Melbourne, Auckland and Wollongong.
Since discovering electronic music in 1994 Seb has moved with the times during a journey that has required constant evolution. Like a lot of London’s youth, his first encounters with the burgeoning underground community came via pirate radio stations and garage raves. These years of nights spent in clubs have been the integral factor in the natural affinity that he shares with the dancefloor. The ability to read a crowd, invite them into his psyche, and keep them enveloped in the journey is all based on his own experiences.
And it is this that allowed him to establish himself as one of the core residents for London and Ibiza’s successful FUSE event series. His place as one of the key proponents of FUSE’s distinctive warm dubby sound is also reflected in his productions. Regularly featuring on both FUSE and inFUSE, the past years have seen a string of releases and remixes that built on a solid foundation of previous output.
In addition to his skills, Seb’s involvement with the brand extends to head of A&R duties for the sub label as well as leading on a series of Infuse parties . Seb‘s Own productions are a mainstay in the boxes of many renowned international DJ’s, with recent releases including Woonie Trax on Rawax, Bedlam Holla“for Kerri Chandlers Kaoz Theory and releases for Fuse, Infuse & Hund. Seb’s latest project, his new Seven Dials label, has received huge support and both EP’s debuting at no1 on Juno.
