Hotflush Recordings chief Scuba compiled a one-hour long mix in advance of his appearance at the International Music Summit in Ibiza featuring a slew of goodies from the likes of George FitzGerald, Eats Everything, Mano Le Tough and countless others. The segment weaves through the pastures of banging techno and mellow house, but meshes flawlessly with perfect rhythm. Scuba has been lauded for both his DJ and production abilities over his lengthy career, and this mix further testifies his dexterity at blending appealing underground music for the masses.Posted by
It’s been two years since we’ve heard anything from Travis Stewart (of Machinedrum with Jimmy Edgar) and Praveen Sharma, but the two are back now as Sepalcure with a new EP on their home label Hotflush. In a world blurred by an overwhelming number of deep house and garage productions these days, it’s always refreshing to listen to something that feels a little different. The lead track off the EP, “Make You,” is just that. Stewart and Sharma build the track around a Whitney Houston sample, and with the help of a grueling sub-bass, a peppering of wood blocks, and time-honored guitar melody they manage to construct an absolutely elegant piece of dance music.Posted by
Electronic music wunderkind George FitzGerland makes his return to Scuba’s Hotflush imprint for the first time in over a year with “Thinking of You.” The track was premiered on his Essential Mix during the Future Stars series, and features a dark and repetitive drum sequence over a tasteful vocal segment. The song is crafted immaculately — adding to FitzGerald’s clout as one of the most promising producers of recent time. If you haven’t familiarized yourself with him yet, now is the time to do so.
