Whether you know him best as the long-time label boss of Hotflush, his SCB alias, the near mythical SUB:STANCE residency at Berghain, his outspoken Twitter account, or in his current incarnation as a bleeding edge house and techno producer, its clear that Scuba is one of underground dance music’s most chameleonic and pioneering trail blazers.
This Winter, Scuba will headline ten dates across North America, kicking off with a Hot Flush showcase in BPM, before hitting spots including NYC’s Output, DC’s U Street and LA’s Sound among others.
Whether at his live shows, over the course of his extended DJ sets, in back-to-back sessions, or via his acclaimed productions, Scuba straddles a unique sweet-spot between house and techno. For all the industrial darkness associated with Scuba since his emergence, his 2012 album ‘Personality’ with its rubbery techno, anthemic house and euphoric vocals, showed his compulsion to push boundaries and refusal to conform to any genre boxes. Praised by the likes of Pitchfork, BBC, NME, CMJ and Clash, it was confounding yet irresistible, and as such, a pretty good reflection of Scuba himself.
