the seventh instalment in the rhythm nation series is by the uk producer isaac reuben. these jams are rough, raw and ready. they bear the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed signature of someone untarnished by exposure yet betray a complete vision and total control of the craft.

scubas entry in the revered fabric mix series features four debut-making artists, three of whom, isaac reuben, glaskin, blursome, feature on the present sampler 12inch alongside the already-emerging talent of tallmen785. together they cover a rich gamut of style. tallmens gear-shifting opener a charge of the techno brigade replete with live drum fills leads into blursomes compact, broken, nocturnal outcry. isaac reuben then messes with structure and genre, bringing deep house tropes into a lofi, rough and raw world before glaskin blow the door wide open right at the very end to reveal their cavernous, ultra deep field. you’ll be hearing a lot from all of them on hotflush in the coming months, so for now let the music break the ice
der londoner dubstep-pionier und hotflush-labelbetreiber scuba aka paul rose beweist seine einzigartigkeit mit einem 75-minütigen fabric-set aus 42(!) über- und nacheinander gelegten tracks. unterschiedliche künstler wie pearson sound und patrick cowley, donato dozzy und midland treffen in einer düster-verführerischen atmosphäre aufeinander, so dass man sich zwischen pumpendem lo-fi techno und subsonischen bässen im rave-kosmos verliert.
