0163 Burial – Come Down To Us @ 8:40

Monday, February 24th, 2014

I started this blog 5 years ago with a Burial post, so it’s fitting that on the 5 year anniversary, I go back to Burial. And again, I’ll keep it simple, this is the 163rd one.

Come Down To Us 8:12 – 9:19 (0:25 mark)

From Rival Dealer, released through HyperDub, 2013

0162 John Wizards – Muizenberg (The 2 Bears Remix) @ 3:15

Sunday, January 26th, 2014

This is a highlight of late 2013; the original of which is from a fantastic album which has flown way under the radar considering how good it is. Check the categories it falls into.

A great way to start 2014, turn it up!

Muizenberg (Start around the 2:00 min. mark)

From the Muizenberg 12″, released through Planet Mu Records, 2013

0155 Moderat – Bad Kingdom @ 3:09

Sunday, July 28th, 2013

You don’t hear beats like this with this much soul and depth, this is a beast of a track. Wow, highly highly recommended. Wait for that album.

Bad Kingdom 3:09 – 3:46

From Moderat II, to be released through Monkeytown Records, August 2013

0152 Cottam – Ire @ 4:30

Japan meets Africa meets Detroit.

Ire 4:27 – 5:23

From the Ubuntu EP, released through Sound of Speed Records, 2013

0149 Burial – Rough Sleeper @ 2:14

Monday, February 4th, 2013

If you like Burial, make sure you read Pitchfork’s review of this 12, it’s great.

It’s tough to pick the best part, because like they say in the article, there’s really 3 tracks over the course of Rough Sleeper’s 14 minutes.

But I keep coming back to the organ, listen to the funny way it loops.

Rough Sleeper 1:58 – 2:28

From Truant, released through Hyper Dub Records, 2012

0001 Burial – Shell of Light @ 3:30

0144 Lukid – USSR @ 1:20

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

This one is for the bedroom producers. I love how Lukid incorporates a number of different sounds and samples here. They don’t sound like they should go together, but he brings it together at 1:20 with the bassline. He and Actress have this sound on lockdown. Totally experimental, and totally their own.

USSR 1:15 – 1:45

From Lonely at the Top, released through Ninja Tune Records, 2012
