Way more than a mere salute, ‘Digital Underground’ takes on a personality of its personal. Mimicking the countless ahead rush of early 90s membership tradition in each tone and method, the light-speed evocation of concepts offers it an exciting sense of artistic velocity.
Born from lengthy hours within the studio, there’s a way of pure enjoyment, pure enjoyable operating by way of ‘Digital Underground’. Contemporary from the success of his Not A Diving Podcast, the Hotflush founder is on a task, making music that satisfies his soul.
Chatting to Mixmag NL recently, Scuba shared…
The venture actually got here from a little bit of enjoyable within the studio – making a number of actually sketchy rave tracks, perhaps spending a morning on every one, and simply messing round with the traditional early 90s sound palette of pre-‘94 hardcore, early jungle, acid home, techno… all the great things.
It’s completely not any type of profound musical assertion, however I acquired a lot personally out of constructing the music, and a lot of it appeared to work collectively, that it completely made sense to weld it into one thing a bit extra substantial. I’ve made a number of ‘correct’ albums, and that is positively not a kind of. It feels much more like a DJ set to me, so I figured let’s name it a mixtape.
Faucet in under.
