SCUBA | This Is For You – Luke Slater Long Version (EP)
A trio of remixes from Luke Slater’s studio give new life to Scuba’s ‘This Is For You’, while marking the influential artist’s Hotflush debut.
The musical exchange between Paul Rose (Scuba) and Luke Slater began last summer when the Hotflush boss put his touch to Slater’s 1997 classic Love, dedicating it to London’s Kings Cross raving institution Bagleys, where he first heard the track. Slater’s gift back to Scuba is similarly stirring, taking his hand to the glistening This Is For You, an early 2020 highlight.
The Luke Slater Long Version serves as a proper electronic jam session charting a course from dubby techno climes, to ecstatic string-laden builds, jazzy introspection and dreamy pads over a thrilling 22 minutes. Epic in every way.
