Paul Rose aka Scuba composes the original soundtrack for comedy-thriller ‘Blow Up My Life’

Paul Rose aka Scuba, one of the UK’s most versatile electronic producers, has achieved another career milestone having composed his first original film soundtrack. Working under the pseudonym, ‘P.Rose’, the artist has written and produced the soundtrack to the whistle-blower comedy-thriller ‘Blow Up My Life’, which is set for worldwide release today, 21 November, 2023.

‘Blow Up My Life’ won Best Film at the Harlem International Film Festival 2023 and tells the story of a disgraced pharmaceutical employee who accidentally discovers a deadly opioid vape conspiracy, sending him on the run to expose the crime with a trail of chaos in his wake.

Of the experience, Rose shares: “It was a big challenge writing the soundtrack for a comedy, electronic producers usually get asked to do Sci Fi. But I learned a huge amount and I’m really happy with the results. After I finished the project, I wanted to do something as far away from it as possible, which is where the Digital Underground project started,” he says speaking of his recent ‘90s rave-influenced mixtape on Hotflush.
