fusus is the musical merge of Ruben Maathuis, Koen Klunder and Koen Vosmeijer, three wayward percussionists who have dedicated themselves to melting their classical roots with electronic music.
With their instrumental and minimalistic works, the Dutch craftsmen make you dream, think and feel that you’re alive. Fusus puts the warmth of a marimba around you as if it was a blanket, makes you groove with infectious rhythms, lifts you up with atmospheric synths and surprises with the sound of unique materials, such as a saw blade.
It was dj/producer De Sluwe Vos who introduced the percussionists to electronic music. For the presentation of his debut album 'Kontra', he asked Fusus to be part of his 'Kontra Album Live Shows', a unique live experience created by a combination of ‘Sluwe’s’ tracks, live percussion and the album vocalists, i.a. Sticks, Willem de Bruyn, GOSTO and Miss Bunty. In 2015, the shows landed at leading stages ands festivals in The Netherlands and Belgium, such as Melkweg Amsterdam, Tivoli Vredenburg Utrecht, 013 Tilburg, Doornroosje Nijmegen, Paaspop, We Are Electric en Pukkelpop.
In 2016, the friends locked themselves up in their studio to create own work. It resulted in Fusus’ first EP In Manu (nov 2016) and a set of ‘studio sessions’ on YouTube (beginning of 2017).
