SCB - CLR Podcast #168Paul Rose revisits his SCB moniker for this week’s Chris Liebing’s curated CLR podcast series.

Originally the SCB project was conceived as an antidote to the characteristic broken beats of the Scuba sound, as was shown on the first SCB release, a remix of Scuba’s own Hard Boiled taken from the album A Mutual Antipathy in 2008.[*]

SCB – Hard Boiled VIP / 28_5 (SCB002)

As reported a few days ago, Paul Rose returns to his SCB moniker for an upcoming HotFlush release later this month. I have been fortunate enough to have an opportunity to preview this one a little more in depth than I was able to just using the Soundcloud teasers the label has posted. While I absolutely enjoy the freshness and more uplifting sounds HotFlush has shown on recent releases, most notably George Fitzgerald, and Sepalcure, I am finding more and more my passions still lie in the darker and deeper realms of electronic music.

Having seen it’s original release on Scuba’s first full-length “A Mutual Antipathy,” the A Side of this release is a VIP Mix of Scuba’s “Hard Boiled.” True to the stage previously set by other SCB projects, the SCB-released VIP remix takes the tune on a dark but noticeably noisy path, noticeably distinguishing it from its original and ‘SCB Edit‘ counterparts.

“28_5” carries the flip side of the release. Deep bass combine with very detail oriented percussion that with subtle acid roots suggested. Echoing vocal cuts swirl channel-to-channel and assorted noisier elements combine creating a rousing build before the tune scales itself back, and rebuilds itself creating the sense of a fervent change in pace, despite the steady pulsing beat.

No disappointments here as HotFlush Recordings continues it’s exploration of cerebral eletronic music, without being painfully self-referencing or pretentious. SCB001 and the mnml ssgs SCB mix definitely set the stage for my understanding of what SCB is, and given the releases I hear, I am excited about where it is headed. Once again, SCB/Scuba showcasing his prowess for combining the choice aspects of many of electronic music’s current fractaclizations.

SCB002 is scheduled for release 8-Nov 2010

SCB002 Preview on Soundcloud

For those who missed it, or don’t hound Soundcloud heavily, HotFlush has made available a preview of the latest release coming from Paul Rose’s techno minded SCB moniker. The release will feature a VIP remix of “Hard Boiled” which sounds absolutely mental in the preview, as well as the B-side “28_5,” a much harder tune with a driving bassline and mysterious panning vocal cuts. Hats off to Paul/SCB for continually pushing the dancefloor possibilities of experimental techno sounds.

A release date of 8-Nov has been given for SCB002.
