Burial :: Street Halo EP (Hyperdub)

This is music that is far more personal and intimate; mood music for late night drives or headphone excursions in the rain. Burial’s sounds are muffled and distressed giving all the tones character and warmth.

Burial 'Street Halo EP'

[Purchase] While Burial is a name that is often dropped when discussing Dubstep, his tracks seem out of place in a genre that is propelled by omnipresent sub bass and thundering compressed snares. This is music that is far more personal and intimate; mood music for late night drives or headphone excursions in the rain. Burial’s sounds are muffled and distressed giving all the tones character and warmth. Much like the releases on Chain Reaction, cracks, pops, and ambient sounds are brought to the forefront. Vocals salvaged from RnB and Pop records are re-appropriated into something soulful and unique. On “Street Halo,” Burial doesn’t deviate far from the formula set out on previous releases. This, however, shouldn’t be seen as a negative, as his efforts were used instead to hone his art. Each of the three tracks on this release rate up with the high points on his Untrue and self-titled debut album. Highly recommended.

Street Halo is out now on Hyperdub. [Purchase]
