Various Space & Time
- Words: Tomas Palermo
- Label: Hotflush
- XLR8R Rating: 9/10
Paul Rose’s London-based Hotflush Recordings can rightfully claim to be one of dubstep’s most consistent and distinctive labels within a genre full of copycats. Like Metalheadz and Mo’Wax before it, Hotflush captures urban London’s dark emotions, complex melodies, and gut-wobbling bass inclinations. Space & Time keenly showcases the imprint’s unique roster, which includes Rose’s subby, intergalactic Scuba productions, Israeli/German collective Jazzsteppa’s live dub riffage, and Californian Vaccine’s vocal-tinged tracks. Hotflush artists daringly explore broad sonic textures; from Intext System’s blend of 808 drum rhythms and ambient sensuality to Elemental’s sharp snare manipulation and tech-y touches. Space & Time sees Hotflush about to boil.
