From January 9, Hotflush boss Scuba will play at London’s XOYO every Saturday for three months, accompanied by a different selection of techno-oriented guests each week (apart from that opening gig, which, following the programme’s tradition, he will play alone). Some of the highlights include heavy-hitters like Nina Kraviz, Chris Liebing, Len Faki, Mind Against, Ryan Elliott and many more. There is also a strong Hotflush presence, with Alan Fitzpatrick, Paul Woolford, Locked Groove and Tallmen785 all billed.
On the residency, Scuba had this to say: “I grew up with the club scene in London, but since leaving for Berlin in 2007 I've only played in the city two or three times per year. The residency appealed to me because it's a chance to properly reconnect with the London scene, to present music that I love on a weekly basis, and to invite guests who I respect and admire. It’s called 12 Weeks Of Techno so there's not much ambiguity about the music policy. But techno means many different things to different people and there's a really wide spectrum to the music. So when thinking about the guests I wanted to be as wide ranging as possible within that techno parameter and put together lineups that covered the full variety of what techno means to people.”
