V4YS Ep/Album Review - Scuba - Triangulation (Hotflush Recordings)

Well here is the best electronic music record we've been listening to so far this year and possibly for a much longer period of time.

Scuba (Paul Rose), who already made a name for himself among dubstep lovers with the multiple great releases from his label Hotflush Recordings these last few years, should really mystify a wider audience with "Triangulation".

If dubstep rythms are never far away all along the 12 tracks composing the album, "Triangulation" explores a much wider range of musical universes. In fact, sitting on its core dubstep roots, it also glides at the frontier of ambient, deep techno/drum&bass and housy rythms.

The diversity of sound effects and tempos, the deep&warm sound waves that keep surrounding you, the dark but cheering atmosphere emanating from several tracks and the fine balance between "dancefloor" tunes and more ambient cuts really make of this album a remarkable piece of music.
An essential electro record really which demonstrates once again (think of last year Martyn's or Joy Orbison' releases) that this experimental tech/dubstep stream currently is one of the most creative of the electro scene.
