5.0 out of 5 stars Funky Paws On Fire, 17 Nov. 2012

This review is from: PERSONALITY (Audio CD)
'Personality' is Berlin-based British composer/producer/DJ Paul Rose's
third album under the Scuba moniker. The portentous verbal introduction
and moody industrial pulse and clattering gives us very little hint of
what is to follow. I was preparing myself for another journey to the
dark side of electronica when the funky techno beats of 'Ignition Key'
burst out of the speakers; its soulful vocal decorations weaving in and
of of an increasingly addictive arrangement. OK, the machines are swishing
and swooshing and stuttering but at heart Mr Rose would seem to want us
to dance. There's a humane and often Big Fun side to these eleven pieces
even when occasional grey sonic clouds threaten to close in and interrupt
the party. It's intelligent, musically adept and well-constructed stuff.

The massive bump and grind of 'The Hope'; the beguiling ebb and flow of
'July' with its eighties-tinged synth bass (I was almost expecting Phil
Oakey to chime in at any moment!); 'Cognitive Dissonance', with its spooky
ghost-ridden sonic landscape made up of shivering chords and shuffling
percussion and the more delicate melodic decorations of 'Tulips' make for
a richly varied listening and gyratory experience but it is the energetic
four-to-the floor shenanigans of final track 'If U Want It' which takes the
biscuit with its simple but intoxicating invitation to throw yourself about!

Mr Rose clearly knows what he's up to. My hairy paws have had full workout!

Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great unique cd of sashas fave producer, 4 Feb. 2013
This review is from: PERSONALITY (Audio CD)
I've heard many a track from Paul rose via mixes in cd and radio. Although expensive it's a great album. Some say he's retro sounding but his minimal prog style is really good.
As said in title he's sashas fave track producer of the moment. Recommended.
