Scuba’s got Personality

Scuba's got Personality Scuba, aka Paul Rose, aka Spectr, aka SCB aka the man behind Hotflush Recordings has just announced details of his third album Personality. Promising a breadth of styles that fall loosely under the banner of electronic club music, Personality comes hot on the heels of his well received DJ Kicks contribution. In fact 2011 was something of a vintage year for Rose with SUB:STANCE going from strength to strength, including a new outpost in New York, albums by Sepalcure and Mt. Kimbie arriving via Hotflush and singles such as his own ‘Adrenaline’ and Paul Woolford’s ‘Stolen’ causing mayhem in the clubs. You can read more about the album in this mini-interview for RA. And don’t forget to tune into Scuba’s NYE 2011 mix for Mary Anne Hobbs below which premiered his album’s upcoming new single ‘The Hope’ as well as the single’s b-side ‘Flash Addict’, both out on February 6th.

Since moving to Berlin form Bristol a few years ago Scuba, real name Paul Rose, has release two stunning albums and put a huge amount of effort into introducing all kinds of mutant strains of bass music to techno-central.
