Much like everyone else in the cosmos, British (Berlin-based, we’re obliged to say) DJ/Producer (we’re obliged to say) Scuba got caught up in a Twitstorm earlier this year. I forget what. Now he’s a mainstay of the DJsComplaining account. So, bless him and all that, but let’s just concentrate on the music – ‘The Hope’ is a grab bag of hard 90s house tropes, hovering, blasting and Josh Winking in what they’re already calling a thrill-ride. It’s as crisp as a Walker’s.
Junior the musicologist identifies some castanets. I bet even Scuba didn’t realise he put them in there.
