Paul Rose first launched his SCB moniker in 2010, going on to appear on labels including Ostgut Ton, Aus Music and Nonplus until 2014. Now he's revisiting his darker alias with a dystopian themed series of releases on Hotflush. ‘Below The Line’ opened a fictional timeline of events set in a hypothetical future, continued on 'Old Media New Society'. A climate-related disaster acts as a catalyst for a complete overturn in society, the repercussions of which will be explored over the coming releases - here featuring four more powerfully twisted and ominous productions.
