Two DJs who grew up together want to change the Stamford music scene with their increasingly popular night.

Ross Michael and Jamie Scott are hosting Fuse at the Voodoo Lounge at Mama Liz’s in North Street from 9pm tomorrow (Saturday).

The free night combines Ross’s tech house style with Jamie’s preference for nu-disco to create an addictive blend of beats and genres.

Fuse has been running at the Voodoo Lounge since the pair were asked to play at a party there last year and is growing in popularity with Stamford clubgoers.

Ross, 29, said: “We have both got different styles. I come from more of a tech house background, while Jamie is more nu-disco.

“We are trying to fuse them together and make it work. But it’s essentially a house night.

“We are trying to bring something different to the town.

“We want to educate people that there is more music out there than what you hear on the radio. We are trying to make it as unique as we can.”

Ross and Jamie grew up in Stamford and were classmates at Casterton Community College. Ross went on to focus on a music production career and set up his own label, Rudedog Records.

Jamie concentrated on DJing and often plays in London. But the pair are keen to carry on entertaining crowds in Stamford.

Ross added: “We both really enjoyed putting the first Fuse night on.

“The Voodoo Lounge is band-orientated but we love the venue. If you select the right dates it can be really busy.

“The music scene in 
Stamford has developed quite slowly. It has come to a standstill really. It’s very commercial, which is fair enough but we want to be a bit more underground and introduce new music to people.”

Fuse runs at the Voodoo Lounge from 9pm til late. Entry is free. For more visit www.mamaliz.co.uk or www.rudedogrecords.com
