Massive album from DVA, his debut full-length for Hyperdub, bringing all the bashiness you'd expect coupled with an afro-futurist, psychedelic component that's just killing us. Calling upon the disparate vocal talents of - among others - Natalie Maddix, Cornelia, A.L., Muhsinah and elusive South African star Zaki Ibrahim, Scratcha has created a completely unique sound-world, at once sensuously poppy and full of pirate grit. Evergreen UK Funky anthem 'Natty' gets reimagined as 'Just Vybe', complete with dreamy vocals from Fatima, drawing a line between classic West London broken beat and latterday soca derivations, 'Polyphonic Dreams' combines rugged-raw percussion and sub-low pulses with manic, space-age synth arpeggios to wreck your head, while '33rd Degree' and 'Fire Fly' are future soul cuts with the emphasis firmly on future. He's really excelled himself on this album- it's hard to imagine a better full-length coming out of the post-UKF scene this year.
