In the all too often mild mannered domain of the electronic music press, Paul Rose sticks out like the sorest of thumbs. Outspoken at the best of times, he needs little prompt to share his opinion – with his proclivity to do so meaning he’s been a participant in more than a few storm in a teacup Twitter ‘beefs’ over the years. To dither over these faux controversies however, is to ignore the fact that Rose has been an iconic figure in the underground for over a decade now – a key player in the transition from Dubstep to today’s open ended mesh of genres and styles. Starting Hotflush back in 2003, Rose put out records from himself (beginning under his Spectr alias), Boxcutter, Distance and others – with the label’s early discography integral in helping Dubstep expand its sonic frontiers.
