ARTIST / BAND: Scuba
SONG (MP3): M.A.R.S. (Machinedrum Remix)
FILE UNDER: Electro, remix,
The one thing that Paul Rose, better known as Scuba, really doesnt want you to do is to try and pin him down. His roots are in Londons dubstep scene, but he lives in the techno metropolis of Berlin. His music is located at some unspecified point between those two cities - bass heavy, sparse, full of atmosphere and with propulsive rhythms, but above all impossible to define. His label, Hotflush, is one of dubsteps spiritual homes, with releases by Distance, Benga and Mount Kimbie, but it also has that hard-to-categorize quality Warp had in the 90s. He is, in a word, a maverick.
