Founded in London in 2003, Hotflush Recordings quickly became synonymous with the sound that came to be known as dubstep. During the genre’s formative period, Hotflush introduced some of its emerging stars, including Distance, Shackleton, and Scuba, and delivered some of the early landmark releases. The label continued to drive the dubstep sound forward, always concentrating on fresh ideas and originality. 2008 brought the brought the label’s first artist album, A Mutual Antipathy by Scuba, which was featured in Resident Advisor’s top 20 albums of the year.
In 2009, Hotflush continued its tradition of unearthing the best new talent while blurring its stylistic focus, bringing acclaimed debut material from Mount Kimbie, Sigha, and Joy Orbison. 2010 brought a second album from Scuba, the acclaimed Triangulation, and debut releases from George FitzGerald and Sepalcure (a collaborative project by Machinedrum and Praveen). Mount Kimbie, now one of the most hotly-tipped acts in the UK, unleashed their first long player, Crooks & Lovers, which along with Triangulation, cemented the label’s status as a major player in the world of electronic music.
The new year promises to continue the excitement, with a second compilation, BACK AND 4TH, bringing together new material from the likes of Scuba, dBridge and Roska with label classics from the last two years. Fresh releases from Joy O, Sepalcure and Sigha dropped in the first half of 2011, and with a steady schedule looking forward into the year to come, the future just keeps getting brighter.
