Rope / Technique
On 11th November DJ, producer and Hotflush label head Paul Rose is bringing his SCB alias back to the label with new single ‘Rope’ / ‘Technique’. This will be followed by the worldwide release of ‘Update’ in December after its US release earlier this year, compiling a selection of material from Scuba’s burgeoning discography as it looks in 2013.
On the new single, Rose delivers two deep, dark and meticulously honed dance floor productions as SCB. ‘Rope’ is led by its focused percussive drive, letting layers of twisted ambience and decaying synth stabs wrap themselves around the nuanced rhythmic evolution as it penetrates the ether. On the flip, ‘Technique’ offers a looser counterpart as Rose offsets the shuffling groove against the mesmeric swing of the chords that lap against it.
The new single is the latest in a series of SCB releases this year, including original production ‘Dissipate’, which featured on the Nonplus ‘Think And Change’ compilation, and remixes for Jimmy Edgar, Arkist and Wraetlic, which Rose has dropped around a busy touring calendar, packed Hotflush release schedule and remixes of Jimmy Edgar and CLOSE as Scuba.
On 2nd December, Hotflush Recordings will then present the worldwide release of their first album compiling a retrospective of Scuba’s productions, titled ‘Update’. Here old and new fans alike will have the opportunity to get there hands on 12 of the label head’s most critically acclaimed tracks, including music from each of his three albums to-date as well as select singles.
