  • Scratcha DVA has just released a new album called Interludes. Named after his new Interludes FM radio show, which has him "playing the best in interludes, intros and outros," according to a recent tweet, the digital release is the first on Leon Smart's new Allyall Records label. It's heavy on brief spoken-word and soundscape pieces, as you might expect, with most of its 17 tracks measuring a minute or less in length. The UK grime and funky artist has also shared a guide to 'Scratchanese,' his own style of slang and shorthand. As a producer, Smart is probably best known for a connection with Kode9's Hyperdub imprint, where his wide-ranging efforts have included two albums, 2012's Pretty Ugly and 2016's NOTU_URONLINEU. He'd previously cofounded the label DVA Music, which closed last year. Listen to Interludes.
