Collaboration, idea sharing, discussion and execution. These are the four big elements to make any scene prosper. The grass is greener when we integrate ideas and focus on inclusion among individuals in the scene.

Since 2014, Dé Fusion has been experimenting with ambience, post rock, instrumental and post metal music before we know them fully cooked and kicking as they are today. To date, they have released their demo way back in 2014, their first EP entitled Kontramata in March 2019, and a collaborative split tape release with another post rock band, MIM, in September 2019. Not showing any signs of slowing down or backing up, they teamed up with Desdemona Apparel from Taiping on the release of their first ever merchandise collaboration project.
Known as one of the most prominent label in the independent music scene since their launch in 2013, Desdemona Apparel is fueled by the usage of their original hand-drawn artwork and their concept of being free-spirited and innovative. They also incorporate dark and heavy usage of graphics in their designs, which have amassed a loyal following among heavy music enthusiasts who purchase their apparels for daily wear. Desdemona Apparel actively supports local shows and also hosts their own series of gigs called Death Returns.
This collaboration will hopefully be a catalyst for other local bands, apparel labels and other creatives to work on more projects together.
We will be producing four designs out of this merchandise collaboration, which is scheduled to drop this month.
