HF042_Sleeve_DIGScuba to release new SCB single
on Hotflush in November -
HF042: ‘Rope’ / ‘Technique’

‘Update’ album to get worldwide release on 2nd December

 
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.
Meanwhile, the Hotflush label has continued to tirelessly push out top quality releases from the likes of South London Ordnance, Locked Groove, Sepalcure, George FitzGerald and Dense & Pika, with Paul Woolford’s utterly infectious single ‘Untitled’ dominating the clubs and airwaves, hitting No.5 in the Beatport top 100 and successfully soundtracking the summer.

New Video: Hear Scuba ‘Hardbody’ in full now

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on December 3, 2012 by E.N.

hf037 SCUBAFollowing the world premiere of his new live show in London last weekend and with latest release ‘Talk Torque’ still on heavy rotation, Hotflush label boss Scuba isn’t wasting any time in returning with new single ‘Hardbody’. The single will be released through Hotflush on December 10th as a one-sided vinyl and digitally as a two week Beatport exclusive.
Premiered by Jackmaster on BBC Radio1 show earlier this month, ‘Hardbody’ has quickly become the subject of fraught anticipation. A natural successor to ‘Talk Torque’ and the latest evolution of his recent output, ‘Hardbody’ is a characteristically well-sculpted piece of dance music. Exploring a deeper house sound, the track’s lush synthwork, glacial arpeggios and soft female vocals are led by propulsive percussion and throbbing low-end.
The new single caps off a stellar year for the DJ, producer and label boss. Having released third album ‘Personality’ to widespread critical acclaim earlier this year, the Summer has been a flurry of festival slots and European wide gigs which culminated in the unveiling of his live show at Oval Space in East London. Imbued with Scuba’s innate musicality, integrity and creativity, the sell-out performance has been received overwhelmingly positively.
Meanwhile, Hotflush continues to go from strength to strength as one of the most consistent strongholds of underground electronic music. Now home to a diverse roster of artists that counts SighaGeorge FitzGerald and Shelter Point amongst its number, a burgeoning release schedule has seen recent singles from Jimmy EdgarJack Dixon and Recondite to name just a few.

Franklin De Costa feat Anonym – Belongings

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2012 by E.N.

After a remarkably strong debut release from The Mole and Jimmy Edgar, Vitalik’s vinyl only Gold Series shows no sign of letting up the pressure. Stepping up to the mark this time is consummate sound crafter Franklin De Costa with a little help from Detroit’s illusive and intriguing Anonym.

Every now and then a piece of music comes along that defies categorization, something so original and contrasting that it commands your attention, igniting the synapses of the listener, imprinting itself on their memory. One such track was Franklin De Costa’s “Corny”. After years of listening to and playing the track, Vitalik label boss Ryan O Gorman felt compelled to contact Franklin De Costa and tell him the impact the track had on him, he went on to suggest that if Franklin were to produce another track of similar boldness and colour that Vitalik would be welcome home for it. Some time later Franklin responded with “Belongings”.
With it’s meandering 112 bpm pace and its lush, verging on sublime synth washes, Belongings is a submergence in a sea of dreamy analogue soup. Anonym delves deeper still with his fathomless Detroit rendition, slow, spacial and subliminal music at it’s best.
Tracks
A. Belongings
B. Belongings (Anonym Remix)
The EP will be pressed to a very limited run of 300 vinyls and will be produced to the highest production standards featuring gold pressed sleeves and hand illustrated artwork from Italian illustrator Flavio Carbonara.

We Love Detroit by Derrick May & Jimmy Edgar out December 3rd

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 18, 2012 by E.N.

Detroit is the undisputed father of techno. Stark and powerful, the iconic sound that gave hope to an otherwise lost city spawned a global movement in music.

We Love Detroit takes a look at one of the protagonists of the story of the birth of techno “the innovator” Derrick May. Examining the journey of techno from conception, its explosion onto the international scene and back to its rediscovery by a new generation inspired by the groundbreaking journey of their hometown predecessors.

We see how almost twenty years later Jimmy Edgar and his contemporaries have taken inspiration from the City and the people who created an entire subculture and they have expanded on, making their own interpretations and once more putting Detroit on the map as one of the most important cities in the electronic music world.

Derrick May’s selection throws light on pivotal moments in techno’s formation. Tracing contemporaries that wore into the landscape to classics from masters that are still as relevant today (Carl Craig and KiNK), his Detroit is bursting with energy and desperate for change. In contrast, Edgar uncovers a new dawn for the city. His chosen tracks are still potent and raw but also majorly as yet unheard.

HOW IT BEGAN

Detroit became known as the birthplace of techno in the 80´s, the catalyst for this futuristic music came in the unlikely form of the schoolboy friendships of Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May or The Belleville Three as they faithfully became known, adopting the namesake of the suburban high school where they met. What separated them from their contemporaries was their view of music. To them it was a serious philosophy rather than a simple form of entertainment.

Atkins made the first leaps in production, writing some seminal early electro tracks under his Cybotron collaboration with Rick Davies. Saunderson would go onto international commercial success with his Innercity outfit. But it was Derrick May´s mix of early Detroit electro and Chicago house beats that would become the blueprint for techno as many of us will recognize it today. After a short burst of production as Rhythim Is Rhythim between ´87 – ´89 tracks like “Nude Photo” and “Strings of Life” put May on the international map. And though his release schedule all but halted during the 1990s, he continued DJing around the world and honed Transmat  into one of the most respected techno labels in the world.

Detroit as a city fell into steady decline after the collapse of the auto industry, as Detroit experienced heavy economic downfall, many of the middle-class white families fled to the suburbs in what is called the “white flight” of the early 70s while middle-class black families were displaced by the de-gentrification of once securely middle-class black districts. Detroit Techno as a genre created a newfound, integrated club scene in Detroit that had not been felt in a general sense after the Motown label moved to Los Angeles.

THE NEW GENERATION

Fast-forward into the 21st century and we find a young Jimmy Edgar playing drums in various Detroit bands, like most of his teenage friends he is into rock music. Contrary to common Europe belief, techno is not omnipresent in Detroit, the scene is incredibly niche and tight knit. If the opportunity hadn´t presented itself in the form of Jimmy stealing a pair of turntables when he was 15 things could have turned out very differently.

The young Edgar ended up playing at parties a friend of his older brother was organizing in Detroit, playing alongside Atkins and May, who Jimmy thought at the time were just local cats on the scene. Although he respected and looked up to them, it wasn´t until later on he realized how pivotal these people were in the creation of a sound that was entirely Detroit inspired.

Stream Jimmy Edgar’s remix of Visionquest’s Footprintz

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on July 31, 2012 by E.N.

Jimmy Edgar remixes Footprintz next single,
‘Dangers of the Mouth’, released on Visionquest

Long-term friends and confidantes of Visionquest, Footprintz release next single ‘Dangers of the Mouth’ on 12″ today, and Beatport on 27th August on the label.

Taken from their long-awaited debut album, scheduled to drop in early 2013, Footprintz deliver that deep, dark and moody 80s-tinged electronica, blurry around the edges, unable to fit anywhere and everywhere. Accustomed to soundtracking late night sunsets and early morning sunrises, Footprintz AKA Clarian North and Addy Weitzman are school friends from Montreal influenced by the likes of Ultravox, Depeche Mode, 80s B-movies and a hefty dose of artistic licence.

First single ‘Dangers of the Mouth’ is reworked by Hotflush’s Jimmy Edgar who takes the track deep into warped and fuzzy territories.
