SCB – Fish Tubes [CAI004]

For the fourth instalment of SCB remix EPs from Hotflush, Mor Elian and Hammer step up for their own interpretations of tracks from Caibu. Fever AM label co-founder and hybrid club producer Mor Elian provides a spaced out take on ‘Fish Bowl’ full of angular drums and woozy synths. For his take on ‘Test Tubes’, Hammer formulates a steady groover for the after hours.

VA – IMF10 part 1 [IMF10.1]

A project 18 months in the making, Marcel Fengler presents a IMF10, a three part compilation series detailing the past, present and future of his label Index Marcel Fengler. Each volume consists of six tracks and encapsulates a different tone. Part one explores deeper and more hypnotic territory, as the legendary Alva Noto makes his debut for IMF re-working the Fengler classic ‘Sphinx’ into a spaced-out industrial beast. DIN, the collaborative project between Fengler and Efdemin reaps an atmosphere-heavy new production titled ‘Akustikkoppler’. Scuba also contributes courtesy of his SCB project, crafting a tripped-out interpretation of Somewhen’s ‘Dain’ from IMF05. Elsewhere close friends Matrixxman (in collaboration with rising producer Riccardo Limiti) and Lucy, also join the project crafting powerful and timeless originals. Always with an eye on the future, Fengler drafts in emerging Slovenian talent Blaukoma, who impresses with the pulsing, tension-packed ‘Iris Pattern’.

SCB – Caibu [HFLP013]

‘Caibu’ is Paul Rose’s first album as SCB. The album builds on material from the ‘Below The Line’, ‘Old Media New Society’, and ‘Engineered Morality’ EPs which explored a fictional narrative in which a hypothetical timeline is corrupted by a climate-related disaster. The title of the album itself refers to an imagined surgical procedure where cognitive ability is augmented through transplant from one brain to another. As such, ‘Caibu’ invites the listener to forge their own ideas on the development of society in the context of crisis.

SCB – Old Media New Society [HF047]

Scuba drops another four cuts as SCB on Hotflush Recordings this December. Paul Rose first launched his SCB moniker in 2010, going on to appear on labels like Ostgut Ton, Aus Music and Nonplus until 2014. This year saw the pioneering British producer revisit his darker alias with a dystopian themed release on Hotflush – he now returns with four more twisted and ominous productions.

SCB – Below The Line [HF044]

Scuba refocuses his SCB project with ‘Below the Line’, coming on Hotflush Recordings. ‘Below The Line’ inaugurates a fictional timeline of events set in a hypothetical future. A climate-related disaster acts as a catalyst for a complete overturn in society, the repercussions of which will be explored subsequently.

The ‘Receiver’ series presents six remixes of tracks from Peter Van Hoesen’s acclaimed ‘Perceiver’ album. The second Receiver release presents two solid interpretations by Scuba’s SCB alter ego and [Phase]. SCB brings out the groove on his edit of ‘Seven, Green and Black’, giving priority to the warm square bass sound of the original. [Phase] takes no prisoners with his tough as nails rework of To Alter A Vector.

SCB – Mace [SCB003]

Paul Rose make his return to the rarely used SCB alias. “Mace” is befitting of its title, all claustrophobic 4/4 filled with jittering percussive touches and menacing acid. The sweeping pads provide the requisite rhythmic undulations on this functional basement bumper. The more substantial rhythms of “Overlay” impress; hollow kicks and rusted stabs laying down the core thrust, whilst Rose moulds layers of growling white noise.

George FitzGerald – Don’t You [HFT014]

Cover art - George Fitzgerald: Don’t You

Hotflush Recordings presents the follow-up single to George FitzGerald’s summer 2010 debut “The Let Down” and “Weakness”.Here we see the budding London-based producer reaching into the brighter side of post-dubstep and UK garage styles, achieving a mood that is both blissful and emotive. On the flipside, Scuba gives the original mix a churning techno re-flex under his SCB guise.

SCB – SCB001 [SCB001]

The remix series from Scuba’s album ‘A Mutual Antipathy’ first saw the alias SCB, as well as the well received mix on mnml ssgs, Scuba delivers the first SCB release on the same titled label. Fusing his very atmospheric and delicate brewing sound with his previously half-established four over four tradition (that got high recognition with the excellent ‘Houndreds & Thousands’ on Hotflush a year back).
