Scuba is the production and DJ alias of Paul Rose, the curator of one of the original dubstep labels, Hotflush Recordings, which released some of the most important tracks of the genre's formative period and has grown into a leading player in the wider world of electronic music.
Originally from London, Scuba relocated to Berlin in 2007, a move which (according to some) influenced his critically acclaimed debut album, A Mutual Antipathy (2008). The stylistic synergy of the album cemented his position as one of the most forward-thinking dubstep producers. The project was subsequently completed with a series of remixes by Surgeon, Substance, Jamie Vex'd, Martyn, Marcel Dettmann and the artist himself under his SCB guise.
His second album, Triangulation, was released on Hotflush in March 2010 to universal plaudits, with many reviewers immediately tipping it as a potential album of the year. An amalgamation of disparate styles, from house to experimental drum n bass, the album has been noted as a landmark in the genre-blurring trend of contemporary dance music.
As a remix artist, Scuba has re-worked tracks for a wide variety of artists, including Fever Ray, Wu-Tang Clan, Vladislav Delay, Skream, Way Out West, Emika, Amp Fiddler, Phil Kieran and Mike Monday.
In addition to running Hotflush Recordings and producing under the Scuba and SCB monikers Paul runs one of the most successful and widely acclaimed club nights in all of Europe (SUB:STANCE at the legendary Club Berghain in Berlin).
