Hyperdub man Scratcha DVA goes all broken on his latest mixtape uploaded to his SoundCloud page. Despite being called Shazam City Mix, the software was not able to identify all the tracks. Even worse, it includes a couple of tracks I know sitting somewhere in my shelf, but I wasn’t able to identify them all (the Bembé track mixing into Jill Scott bugs me the most!)01. Reel People feat. Darien – Upside (Bugz Dubside Mix)
03. Shokazulu – Hips Don’t Fail Me Now
04. Tatham, Mensah, Lord & Ranks – Stars Shine For You
06. Dego & Kaidi – Acting up on that Shit Don’t Count
07. Vikter Duplaix – Manhood
08. Jill Scott – Golden (Remix)
10. Jazzanova – Soon (Domu Vocal Mix)
11. Shokazulu – Sammy Sebastian
12. DVA feat. Zaki Ibrahim & Metrodome – Solid
13. IG Culture – DJ Power (Use It)
14. The Free Design – Lullaby (J-Nova Remix)
