SCUBA: "I DON'T WANT TO BE PART OF THE EDM VISUAL ARMS RACE"

Hotflush boss Scuba launched his brand new live show in London this weekend at the Hotflush warehouse party.

The show, which took place at East London's Oval Space, featured a bill entirely made up of artists from the Hotflush roster including George Fitzgerald and Lando Kal.

But while launching a live show that focuses heavily on striking lights and lasers, Scuba has said he's not interested in becoming part of the EDM visual arms race.

Speaking to The Independent, the DJ said of the show, "The last thing I wanted was to get involved in this whole cliche of the EDM-live visual arms race. The focus of the show is very much the music and the visual elements are there to add emphasis and atmosphere to the whole thing."

Scuba, real name Paul Rose, then went on to say, "I want people to dance. The idea of having a bunch of people stood in a room with their arms crossed listening to techno and watching some flashing lights and stuff appearing on screens doesn’t appeal to me at all. Actually I can’t stand the whole VJ thing. You go to a club to dance, not watch TV."

After launching the live show at the sold out party this weekend, Scuba now plans to tour the live show next year, with a show in his adopted hometown of Berlin in the pipeline for early next year.
