Ten years after the launch of his inimitable SUB:STANCE party at Berghain, Scuba presents three new releases channelling the spirit of the era, due out over the next few weeks on Hotflush.
SUB:STANCE opened a portal for many involved with the UK-centric dubstep movement of the 2000s, immersing them directly at the core of Berlin’s thriving techno scene. During its five year run from 2008-2013, the quarterly event brought an impressive list of artists to Berghain for the first time, opening up the Berlin institution to a new set of aesthetics and commanding a dialogue between two crucial scenes. In 2018 Scuba presents three new releases channelling the spirit of the era, due out over the next few weeks on Hotflush.
‘A Mutual Antipathy Revisited’ offers a remastered version of Scuba’s seminal 2008 debut, with the addition of a previously unreleased track featuring Amp Fiddler. Release date 19 October.
‘SUB:STANCE in Retrograde’ is a previously unheard collection of tracks produced between 2008 and 2010. Release date 2 November.
‘Sounds of SUB:STANCE’ is a vast compilation of unreleased or previously vinyl-only material from some of the most lauded figures in electronic music, as well as key tracks that represent the era, presented in one digital package. Release date 23 November.
