A Rose in step

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - LISTINGS - JIM CAR­ROLL

SCUBA Stiff Kit­ten, Belfast To­mor­row 10pm £10 be­fore 11pm/£12 048-90238700 Paul Rose is a man who wears a few hats. He’s the chap who runs the ex­cel­lent Hot­flush la­bel, an elec­tronic mu­sic im­print that has pro­vided acts such as Joy Or­bi­son, James Blake, Mount Kim­bie, Sigha, Ge­orge FitzGer­ald, Roska, Un­told and many oth­ers to cre­atively roam in the past.

When he’s not tak­ing care of la­bel busi­ness, Rose (be­low) works the switches and machines as Scuba. His al­bums, es­pe­cially Tri­an­gu­la­tion and this year’s Per­son­al­ity, demon­strate that Rose has an ex­cel­lent com­mand of dark, moody, liq­uid thumpers and other shades of the post-dub­step land­scape.

Rose has proven to be a mav­er­ick spirit in terms of mov­ing be­tween his dub­step roots and more re­cent techno lean­ings . In the past few years he’s joined forces with Spy­man’s Paul Fowler to helm the Sub-Stance night at the Berghain club in Berlin, the city he now calls home.

Sup­port from Phil Kieran. Wig­gle get up and get down (Fri, Cork); sea­sonal de­lights with Yule Hearts Run Free (Sat, Dublin); and qual­ity Italo-Disco with I-F (Sat, Dublin)
