Sooooo looking fwd to this record. Between trying to listen to as much of his morning program on Rinse FM - which is now no longer, as he's producing FT - to listen to the odd release and remixes he's put out, to the HyperDub special he's doing once a month on Rinse FM as well, I try to catch as much as DVA's work as possible. But the March 20th 2012 date will be one to bookmark. DVA will be dropping that long awaited full length, which will feature a number of vocalists, over some of his special time signatures and riddims, the types he was maligned for from the grime guys who were stuck at 140, and refused to move the pitch control. But the tracklist has been revealed as well as the artwork a few weeks ago. It looks something like this.
01. Reach The Sun
02. Just Vybe feat Fatima
03. Polyphonic Dreams
04. Pretty Ugly feat Cornelia
05. Bare Fuzz
06. Madness feat Vikter Duplaix
07. Fire Fly feat Zaki Ibrahim
08. Why U Do feat AL
09. The Big 5ive
10. Eye Know Ft Natalie Maddix
11. 33rd Degree feat Muhsinah
The LP features 3 RBMA grads in Muhsinah, Fatima, and Cornelia, South African/Canadian Zaki Ibrahim as well as the silvery voice of Vikter Duplaix who's track Madness was picked as lead with a video as well.
