Released earlier this year via his own imprint, Hotflush Recordings, Paul Rose debut LP as SCB – ‘Caibu‘ – saw the British producer expand his palette to further experimental horizons, melding his usual blends of galloping techno and reverb-sodden atmospheres with off-kilter programming, rough-patched breaks and disruptive vocal sampling, extending the appeal of his music beyond the club continuum with style and panache.
Landing today is ‘Fish Tubes‘, the fourth remix EP in a series that already counts versions from Rebekah, Isaac Reuben, ANNA and Ireen Amnes. This time the reins are handed over to Fever AM co-founder Mor Elian and Bicep affiliate Rory Hamilton aka Hammer, who step up to provide a fine mélange of bounciness and spectrum depth, both muscle-flexing treats in their own right.
With its Dervish-like spiral moves and pumping drum motifs, Mor Elian’s take on ‘Fish Bowl‘ is the kind of tune that shall spur weird psychomotor responses in dancers. While hard-hitting percs lash at an industrial cadence, soon hacked by old-school breaks straight out the darkest rave, synths curl and unfold across Terry Riley-esque lysergic landscapes. Full of grit but also hypnotic to the fullest, this one’s sure to wreak havoc on the dancefloor no matter the hour of the day or night.
