FKA Scratcha DVA, the Hyperdub associate Leon Smart brings his newest DVA [Hi:Emotions]  avatar to Annex, following the release of his most narrative-driven record to-date – NOTU_URONLINEU.

A dystopian tale of humanity ruled by a universal mega corporation in a branded virtual reality, DVA’s speculative sonic fiction obscures the previously blurred edges of grime, house and UK funky even more –  as Laurent Fintoni puts it in this FACT feature, the album is a  “gripping meditation on humankind’s embrace of machines and the fluidity of identity in the digital age.”DVA brings his own brand of altered reality to live presentation in collaboration with visual artist Roca, in an immersive, visceral AV show – get a taste of it with this NTS produced video.
