Listening to: Burial, Untrue

Burial Untrue

For anyone still standing at the end of the long, strange journey through the tunnel of electronic music, particularly all the different forms of house over the years, this is lovely, emotional, introverted and perhaps a little nerdy. It’s also very, very good in a genre-transcending sort of way. The producer (whose real identity is apparently a secret, woo hoo) makes dubby headphone soundscapes based on the fast-yet-somehow-serene broken beats of two-step and grime. It’s really great to put on repeat while working. Not sure what that says about it, but I find it strangely motivating :)
