Paul Rose (aka Scuba/SCB) is at it once again, following his sublime release under the SCB alias with a mix of equal quality for XLR8R. The head of Hotflush, now based in Berlin, provides 1 hour and 8 minutes of pure house and techno. Tracks are wonderfully mixed, with seamless transitions and a tracklist full of exclusives and less obvious deep cuts that sit nicely in Rose's collection. The mix travels between deep house, jacking house, dubby techno and acid trips throughout, sounds which undoubtedly complement each other as evidenced here. The opening chord melody of Recondite's 'Yield' immediately draws you in, and new 12"s from Braille, John Spring, Instra:mental, Jon Convex, and of course SCB's recent effort 'Loss', retain your attention for the following hour. Three turntables and a mixer.
