Following the world premiere of his new live show in London last weekend and with latest release ‘Talk Torque’ still on heavy rotation, Hotflush label boss Scuba isn’t wasting any time in returning with new single ‘Hardbody’. The single will be released through Hotflush on December 10th as a one-sided vinyl and digitally as a two week Beatport exclusive.
Scuba – Hardbody (Official)
Premiered by Jackmaster on BBC Radio1 show earlier this month, ‘Hardbody’ has quickly become the subject of fraught anticipation. A natural successor to ‘Talk Torque’ and the latest evolution of his recent output, ‘Hardbody’ is a characteristically well-sculpted piece of dance music. Exploring a deeper house sound, the track’s lush synthwork, glacial arpeggios and soft female vocals are led by propulsive percussion and throbbing low-end.
The new single caps off a stellar year for the DJ, producer and label boss. Having released third album ‘Personality’ to widespread critical acclaim earlier this year, the Summer has been a flurry of festival slots and European wide gigs which culminated in the unveiling of his live show at Oval Space in East London. Imbued with Scuba’s innate musicality, integrity and creativity, the sell-out performance has been received overwhelmingly positively.
Meanwhile, Hotflush continues to go from strength to strength as one of the most consistent strongholds of underground electronic music. Now home to a diverse roster of artists that counts Sigha, George FitzGerald and Shelter Point amongst its number, a burgeoning release schedule has seen recent singles from Jimmy Edgar, Jack Dixon and Recondite to name just a few.
