493 – David Scuba


Raised on a diet of underground house music in the legendary confines of New York’s Twilo during the late 1990s, David Scuba is now coming into his own. At the same time as holding down an arduous day job, he has been an influential A&R for labels like Timeless Groove and Real Music Deal overseeing releases from numerous international names in the past. Now, though, his closest ties lie with the legendary MR C and the Superfreq label they run together. As well as producing his own solo tracks and remixes for the label – which have gone on to be supported by Adultnapper and MR C himself at parties across the globe including Sunday school for Degenerates at WMC – he has also released on Riff Raff alongside Mikael Stravöstand, much to the delight of fans including Magda, and has teamed up..

David Scuba has released on Deserts Hearts, Family Grooves, Design Forms, NOSI Music, Veryverywrongindeed, Riff Raff, Compatible & AA Traxand he now teams up with Finley for Superfreq’s next extremely exciting outing.   Finley has been equally prolific with releases on Get Physical, Nervous, Superfreq, Touch of Class, Motek, Faceless & Sullivan Room; & it seems together they really have hit the sweet spot.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
