The Nebula EP sees the first collaboration between upcoming Glaswegian producers RUDA and Rapture 4D for a gleaming-but-gritty 4 piece instrumental EP.
Yoker born grime prodigy, Rapture 4D has been catching people’s attention since he graduated from the Red Bull Academy working with the likes of Sir Spyro, Plastician, P Money and Stormin while RUDA is an active member of the Glasgow underground bass scene and a LVLZ radio resident.
For its 20th release, Scrub a Dub touch down on grime territories, oscillating between square waves and space echoes. This new 12” pushes the boundaries of dub as we know it while remaining deep and heavy - a pure slice of Glaswegian dubstep.

Forward thinking dub is the ethos of this highly collaborative future stepper from Scrub A Dub Records. US production duo Alter Echo & E3 have linked up with Bristol’s Ishan Sound to create an awe- inspiring warrior stance anthem. Ah Mi Guide features a hypnotic sample from Rider Shafique, over an unrelenting beat crafted by E3 and Ishan then mixed in dub by Alter Echo. The flipside remix comes via ascendant dubstep producer Egoless, who transforms the stark original into a slow burning fire, garnished with a flourishing flute refrain. Either side is guaranteed to shake up and mesmerise a dance!

Soulquencies is a perfect harmony of deconstructed soundsystem music. Beautifully rebuilt with ambient textures, it hints towards grime and steppers while all the time melodious, musical and underpinned with bass weight. It perfectly transcends from clean and heavenly harmonies to bass pressure and grit – icy to warm in a masterful way.
This is the first full length album on Scrub a Dub and we couldn’t be prouder of this piece of music, which is equally at home on a hi-fi or a soundsystem.
Soulquencies is the brand new album from the artist Aquarius, a classically trained musician from Tokyo who cut his teeth in the music industry in Glasgow in the early noughties. He hosted some of the city’s frst dubstep nights bringing artists like Silkie and Goth Trad, and taking small basement sessions into the bigger clubs, supporting Mala at the Art School. He played at some of the frst Outlook festival parties and was a trusted tour engineer for Mungo’s Hi Fi Soundsystem, before returning to Tokyo where he distilled his experiences and musical vision into this project.
