Hotflush’s main man Scuba is setting off on another North American tour next month, following his massive winter tour earlier this year!

Kicking off on April 11th in Mexico City, he will then make stops in Phoenix, Indio for both weekends of Coachella, New York, Portland, and Chicago. Check out the full tour details above!
Paul Rose has continued to push the boundaries of house, techno, and disco with his Scuba alias. He had a banner 2013 being named “Best Live Act” by DJ Mag, and releasing ‘Update,’ which explored his back catalogue. He’s back with his first new productions since 2012’s “Hardbody,” titled ‘Phenix 1.’ Don’t miss out as he tours the continent as the first installment of his new Phenix series is released!
When asked about the EP, Scuba states: “There’s still a strong dance floor element to it all but with a much greater emphasis on mood and atmospherics. There are elements of all the different stages my production work has taken in previously too, but the result is a bit different to all of them.”
