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.
