2 Hotflush Recordings

Hotflush Recordings is the brainchild of esteemed producer and DJ, Scuba. Founded in 2003, the imprint is behind some of dubstep’s earliest expansions into lighter, post-era sounds. From Joy O’s ‘Hyph Mngo’ to Mount Kimbie’s ‘Carbonated’ and ‘Maybes’, it played a key role in pushing talent out from the underground, tapping Loefah, Toasty, Pangea and Benga for releases before transitioning into more techno-driven territory.
