Hotflush boss Paul Rose aka Scuba is back with his third album. If you expect sound similar to Triangulation, you may be suprised. Paul decided to try different way for this time. And I guess there are only two options: you will totally love it or hate it…
Why? Well, most of us know Rose as a dubstep producer and DJ who established few years back influential and consistently high quality Hotflush Recordings. But if you follow the label (and Scuba`s work) closer, you may noticed how both have changed musical face. Hotflush is not just about dubstep now, but also about bass or techno music.
Scuba`s Personality presents a perfect mix of breaks, funky or even ambient influences. I have a hunch already in summer when Scuba released Adrenalin EP that something is up and here we go… Paul maybe finished with dubstep :) But for me personally, it`s a good thing. Music is constantly changing and various influences coming back, so why not. And Personality has strong groove, THAT groove which makes me smile and put me into dancing mood almost immediately… So, I guess it works in a right way.
But make your own opinion, Scuba was so kind and put full preview on Soundcloud page:
Release date: 27th February on Hotflush recordings
