    Burial – “Truant” – [Hyperdub]

    Burial has a unique style that has been described as “post rave.” Combining elements of minimal techno, UK garage and 2step, dub, jungle and broken beat, he weaves together soundscapes that are simultaneously bleak and lifeless, yet lush and emotional. Truant / Sleeper is a 2012 release on the Hyperdub label, and while only 2 tracks, it should be thought of as more of an EP than a single. The title track is a 3 part suite that moves from a 4/4 breakbeat to a deep garagey techno dub, breaking down into breathy early 90s trance synths, ending with deconstructed breakbeats and surgically precise dancehall drums. Reminiscent of the empty spaces and stabs of the self-titled full length album, abrupt breaks, halting noises and off-beat snares are used here with stunning effect to create an amazing piece of music.”Rough Sleeper” has a more conventional feel but stays true to the spirit of the EP. Grimey broken beats, unmistakable 4/4 undertones, xylophone stabs and haunting vocals combine to give the track and almost upbeat glimmer, only to change up again, ending with a moody experimental broken beat.

    This is an outstanding work – deeply emotional and exploratory, evoking nostalgia of memories that were never made. Burial’s releases continue to amaze, leaving the listener wanting more.
