"RS Produções are the next, thrilling young unit to emerge from Lisbon's fertile club scene via Príncipe. Produced by core members DJ Narcisoand Nuno Beats, Bagdad Style supplies a crisply rugged, bittersweet taste of the crew's hyperlocal sound, spanning electro-compatible Batida bangers alongside wonky, slower semi-tarraxos and deep, wave-y house mutations. If you were snagged by Príncipe's P. Adrix, DJ Lilocox, and Niagara releases already in 2018, this one's unmissable, too. Formed in 2014 as a close group of pals from Rinchoa, Rio de Mouro, on the edges of Lisbon, RS Produções grew wings when, in 2016, a then 17-year-old Narciso knuckled down and relaunched RS as a proper crew with DJs, producers and an MC in the same model as pivotal Lisbon posse, Piquenos DJs Do Guetto. The crew have since become regular fixtures at Príncipe's famous monthly residency in Lisbon's Musicbox club, and their debut showcase is certain to send them spinning around the globe. The EP is fronted by two unmissable Batida heaters from DJ Narciso in the bare bones electro percussion of "Caipirinha" and the kinked metallic cargaa of "Constipacao do Poco", before the slinky interplay of dissonant organ riffs and flighty pipes in "Guerreiro" highlights a wicked taste for sour, battery-tang lixx that comes to inform the rest of the EP, courtesy of Nuno Beats' slower tarraxo styles in "Lingrinhas" and the super wave-y spesh, "Futuro", while Nuno & Narciso come together with ruder, up-tempo torque in the hypnotic electro-house swang of "Aberturu" and the sensuous deep Kuduro contours of "Hino RS", which should leave listeners in no doubt as to the duo's breadth and quality of club music.

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.
This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).
Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.
Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.
Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).
So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
