We've been following the trace of the album debut by DVA (aka Scratcha DVA) on Hyperdub for weeks, months even, hearing the promising advance tracks he's been dropping recently. After “Madness / Polyphonic Dreams” - two tracks featuring jumpy percussion and straying, undulating synths taking us to science fiction worlds - now we can listen to “Pretty Ugly” in its entirety. It's a highly enjoyable selection of colourful vibes, between silky soul (vocal contributions by Fatima, Muhsinah, Vikter Duplaix, Natalie Maddix, Cornelia, Natalie Maddix and Zaki Ibrahim), synthetic sounds from the world of off-kilter beats, chiaroscuro and tribal dubstep, UK funky and new R&B. The album is due out on 19th March (a day later in the USA). Until then, you can listen to it via the player below, courtesy of Hype Machine.
