2012 has seen DVA come of age.
Departing from the much vaunted breakfast slot on Rinse FM, DVA has been able to focus on his own music. At the behest of Hyperdub head Kode9 the producer began teasing his ideas into album form, expanding past his roots on House and Grime.
When it landed, debut LP 'Pretty Ugly' surprised all those who heard it. An expansive, imaginative take on the state of bass, the album matched all out bangers with rather more reflective, soulful material. DVA's new double pack is a concise introduction to his distorted universe.
'Fly Juice' comprises 2 x 12 inches and manages to run the gamut between sharp, edgy UK Funky and seductive, soulful house music. The title cut is a jazz tinged opener, while 'Do It' matches shuddering bass weight to a House template.
'Walk It Out' is a Funky tip, all sharp angles and tight looks while 'Long Street' features contributions from 'Big Street'.
Out on Monday (November 19th) ClashMusic have grabbed a quick preview from Hyperdub in time for the weekend.
