Scuba To Tour Australia This November To December

Get yourselves ready for some electrifying performances as techno maverick Paul Rose, better known as Scuba will be performing in Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney this November to December. Scuba has been busy shaping the electronic dance scene’s bass-heavy landscape since 2003.

Among an impressive list of credentials, Rose owns the record label, Hotflush, he’s released three albums, spun a mix for the esteemed DJ Kicks and fabric series, run a night at Berghain, bagged a DJ Mag Best Live act award and recently played a Boiler Room set in Berlin.

Scuba explains that his record labels recent direction is moving towards “the grassroots nitty-gritty dance-scene stuff”. An LP from Dense & Pika, an EP from Trevino and remixes by Len Faki and George Fitzgerald have actually been featured by Hotflush to help demonstrate the new sound. Rose has also released a new album himself and will soon be hosting fabric 90: Scuba Launch Party at the Steelyard in London, an event from which all profits will be donated to fabric’s #saveourculture fund.

As a DJ and producer, Rose’s personal achievements have seen him become one of UK’s electronic luminaries. A musical contrarian, Scuba has deliberately pushed against dance music currents, changing course when it suits him. After the melancholic statement that comprised his 2008 debut A Mutual Apathy, he released 2010’s Triangulation, a widely acclaimed opus steeped in shadowy cross-genre electronics.

That was swiftly followed by excursions into deep 4/4 rhythms under the pseudonym SCB and then, almost out of nowhere, the release of 2011’s Adrenalin EP which paved the way for the following year’s jubilant 90’s house-inflected Personality album.

2014 saw Scuba take on a fresh musical approach. Speaking frankly, he explains: “I felt that I’d taken that approach of being intentionally contrary to its fullest conclusion and that it was time to do something different.” The Phenix series of EPs were the first sign of that: a darker, more introspective musical direction melding dancefloor dynamics with brooding atmospheres and spectral vocals.

Don't miss Scuba as he tours Australia with his infectious music!
