DVA (a.k.a. Scratcha DVA) shows that he isn’t just some funky one-trick pony with this exclusive dub mix of “Freakout.” Though the funky, pseudo-tribal percussion is still present, the synths that ride atop are more akin to tech-house sounds of the mid-oughts, showing some of the eclectic influences that the UK funky culture has absorbed into its sound. What makes the track truly special, though, are the synth gurglings that subtly drone under the piece, a flourish that only a true composer would insert into such a dancefloor workout. DVA’s The New World Order EP comes out this week on his own label.
