- Intelligence Fetish
- Precise Incision
‘Engineered Morality’ is the third EP from Scuba’s SCB alias that finds him exploring a fictional narrative in which a hypothetical timeline is corrupted by a climate-related disaster.
‘Intelligence Fetish ’ brandishes a hypnotic synth lead contrasted with sharp distortions. ‘Precision Incision’ is a dark workout with intricate percussion and subtle acid inflections. ‘Fishbowl’ drifts slowly through halftime drum patterns and sombre harmonies.
Paul Rose’s career has enjoyed a unique trajectory that affords his reputation as one of the scene’s most forward thinking artists, label heads and promoters. Always the risk taker, his Hotflush imprint is credited as a key force behind the evolution of bass music, whilst his ground-breaking booking policy for the sub:stance night at Berghain opened up one of the worlds most revered venues to new sounds and musical possibility. Today he continues to challenge the status quo of electronic music through a packed touring schedule, various artistic projects of his own and a weekly radio show platforming new material.
