Scuba - Digital Underground


Digital Underground by Scuba

Memories of the rave

One may argue that a collection of tracks by one person isn't strictly a mixtape, even if Space Afrika and Joy Orbison did it already. But Paul Rose, aka Scuba, joins this exclusive group with Digital Underground, a twelve track album that revisits the foggy days of Rave with all the Jungle traits, 2-step, rolling piano loops, hoovers, wobbles, uplifting female refrains and even some tasteful chipmunks. The tracks are mixed though and the massive energy that comes from the breakneck flow lends proceedings a distinct mixtape vibe. What we don't get though is nostalgia; it's too polished, too knowing. Who cares though, it's rather good.
