Scuba BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

BBC Player
BBC Radio 1 has had a stacked month of Essential Mix goodness, and there’s an apparent trend towards deep house and techno as Patrick Topping, Claptone, and Julio Bashmore, thrown down some serious good sets. Most recently Scuba was given mix duties to continue bringing the deep and tech worlds into the limelight, bringing another level of expression to the historied radio show.

Paul Rose (Scuba) has been hard at work, coming off the release of his fourth studio album Claustrophobia. With this being his second Essential Mix outing, there is a very experimental way he goes about curating his mix. Including a lot of new tracks from his label, Hot Flush, while adding some new material from Alan Fitzpatrick, and a slew of tunes from White Label, this 30 track journey covers all the essential outings plus some unexpected twists and turns.

“This mix is a summation of the kind of sets I’ve most enjoyed playing recently. End of the night slots where I’ve got a lot of space to play around, from a peak time starting point to an almost after hours kind of finish. There’s a point around half way through mix where it’s almost as if the sun is rising and after that point all bets are off, in the same way it happens in real life where you feel like there’s total freedom to play whatever you like. Those are the kind of moments I love as a DJ and this mix captures a bit of that.”
