The venerable Hyperdub label will be staying as busy as ever come the new year, with three highly anticipated singles arriving before the end of March. The first is from young grime upstart DVA (a.k.a. Scratcha DVA), who goes into more UK funky territory on his latest slice, Natty/Ganja. "Natty" features collapsing percussive elements, intense polyrhythms, and a tribal feel that wouldn't sound out of place on a Culoe de Song record. "Ganja," on the other hand, is a bit sillier, its wonky synth line, organ stabs, and soca-like percussion creating a perfect ringtone for mobile devices everywhere.
Natty/ Ganja comes out January 18 on Hyperdub Recordings.
