Burial – “Untrue” – [Hyperdub]

Belladonna   10/23/2013   A Library, CD


This is the second full length release of Burial (aka the elusive William Emmanuel Bevan). Although this is considered Dub Step and theres a lot of UK Garage, Jungle, break beat etc influences, he really has created a sound that is truly unique. Its gloomy, dark and somber but still dreamy and romantic. There is a heavy use of vocal samples, mostly pitch shifted and time stretched which adds to an otherworldly element and do all of the storytelling. “Cinematic” is used quite a bit when describing his work and I definitely agree. This really is amazing.
