Scuba: Adrenalin

You’ve probably heard Hotflush’s latest release from Scuba on SoundCloud if it’s not already been purchased by now (the A side’s had 12,081 plays). It’s big, massive even, and euphoric, hands-in-the-air Gatecrasher euphoric. So… is that a good thing?

FabricLive 59: Four Tet

Four Tet (a.k.a Kieran Hebden) adds something special to the Fabric Live series with the 59th compilation out this Monday, September 19th. The mix has a distinct narrative to it and unearths music that hasn’t previously had a great deal of exposure, as forgotten gems reside next to current tracks that are dear to Hebden alongside a number of his own tracks made specially for the compilation – something Four Tet has been doing for his DJ sets and Live shows for many years.

Stuart McCallum: Distilled

Manchester guitarist and composer Stuart McCallum is best known for his work with Cinematic Orchestra. The distinctive, ethereal and atmospheric sound of his guitar has been at the heart of their sound since 2004, featuring prominently on the albums ‘Ma Fleur’ and ‘Live At The Royal Albert Hall’ as well as the award winning soundtrack ‘The Crimson Wing’.

His own music is largely inspired by jazz and DJ culture but is a distillation of many influences, creating a sound that is concentrated and distinctive. McCallum who admires the artistry of the likes of Wes Montgomery to Bjork, Flying Lotus to Bon Iver and James Blake to Bill Frisell, as well as modern art, eschews over-complicated harmonic and rhythmical structures in favour of a rich mix of electronica and improvisation enriched by elegant orchestral writing.
