    History of our world

    Early days of pgh jungle.

    Pittsburgh has a strong history of UK breakbeat music, going back to the early raves promoted by Deadly Buda in the early 90s, but really catching on in the mid-90s with events by Underground Inc., and djs and producers like Dieselboy, 1.8.7., Sine, Ruffian, Soji Fu, Farmer Tea and others. The Steel City Jungle night ran at Club 168 and Laga from 95-98 and solidly established Pittsburgh as a hotbed for jungle music.

    Balance

    By the end of Steel City Jungle, a number of the first generation of drum and bass djs had moved out of the city to persue full time careers. There was a void left in the scene. Nick "Bulletproof" Teodori and Jay "Alaska" Chitty spearheaded putting on a new night that they dubbed Balance, which had stints at the old Oakland Beehive and at Zythos (later Z-Lounge). After mixed results, they regrouped along with DJ Bricks, and picked up a Wednesday night at the Bloomfield Bridge Tavern (BBT), calling it FUZE.

    FUZE & 412DNB

    With the lulled state of the scene, it was pretty clear that everybody who cared about the music would have to come together to make a regular night succeed, and thus 412DNB was formed out of the active djs and diehard fans at the time. The early resident rotation included Alaska, Bagel, Binac, Bricks and Ratana with Absolut, Cutups, Ian Vaughn, MPS, Midas, and NCrawler coming in within the first few years along with support from "Jungle Mike".

    FUZZ

    In the first years, Nick Teodori was the conceptual and graphical leader of the night, and ran with alot of design concepts based on inside jokes, misprints and whims. So the proposal to change the night's name in 2004 from FUZE to FUZZ wasn't entirely surprising. Since then we've added and lost some crew members, but always kept a dedication to Drum & Bass on a solid soundsystem, top notch locals and high calibre guests for a reasonable cover.
