Nextup: Burial – Rival Dealer

Mr illusive himself (or herself) is set to drop a new EP on Hyperdub 16th December. Here we have put the tracks into a playlist for your listening pleasure.

‘Rival Dealer’, the title track is a ten minute epic of monstrous proportions. Jumping in as frantic drum and bass with a sensual, alien vocal; through crazy, trance-like Italo breakbeats which gradually get deeper and deeper, even more distorted and twisting before a male voice (possibly Burial) begins asserting over the top which then morphs into a female voice. All this gender reassignment and genre hopping makes for a song which has you out of breath by the time it has concluded. Did we mention that by 7.30 the song drops the beats and becomes some sort of space-like hymn?

Release: 16.12.2013
