Scuba, C-Dubs, Spliffolian
BASSIC is proud to bring you a night of music, dance, and enjoyment like no other featuring one of the most influential artists to appear in the last few years electronic music. His production has blurred the lines between genres and left us stunned and awed at the unique sounds and textures that have graced our ears. BASSIC is proud to bring you the sounds of SCUBA (UK).
Scuba is the production and DJ alias of Paul Rose, the curator of one of the original dubstep labels, Hotflush Recordings, which released some of the most important tracks of the genre’s formative period and has grown into a leading player in the wider world of electronic music.
Originally from London, Scuba relocated to Berlin in 2007, a move which (according to some) influenced his critically acclaimed debut album, A Mutual Antipathy (2008). The stylistic synergy of the album cemented his position as one of the most forward-thinking dubstep producers. The project was subsequently completed with a series of remixes by Surgeon, Substance, Jamie Vex’d, Martyn, Marcel Dettmann and the artist himself under his SCB guise.
His second album, Triangulation, was released on Hotflush in March 2010 to universal plaudits, with many reviewers immediately tipping it as a potential album of the year. An amalgamation of disparate styles, from house to experimental drum n bass, the album has been noted as a landmark in the genre-blurring trend of contemporary dance music.
Between album sessions he has been busy remixing artists including Booka Shade, Fever Ray and Will Saul, and developing the SCB project which focuses squarely on house and techno.
In addition to A&R and production duties, he also runs the massively successful SUB:STANCE night at the legendary Berlin club Berghain, the sound of which he committed to plastic in a DJ mix released on Ostgut Ton in January 2010.
Opening pressure will be brought to you by San Francisco's Spliffolian and BASSIC resident C Dubs. The downstairs at Goodlife will be bringing the serious low end bass you love while upstairs at Goodlife will also be a showcase of 2 other great nights; Milk & Honey & Booty Boston. Milk & Honey is hosted by DJ Leah V a gay & straight friendly party where are all welcome to come dance and hang to the sounds of quality top 40, hiphop, reggae & electro to make you move. While Booty Boston will bring you some serious mash-up madness with some unlikely sounds you never thought you'd hear!
