BLACKDOWN / BURIAL

Phwwwwooar! This is a bit of alright! Blackdown and Burial, joined by Heatmap for a four (count em!) track EP of unfathomable fresh, future musica!

Keysound label head Blackdown gets us underway with a wild barrage of drum machines, strings, phazed atmos and ghosted vox with his track "This Journey VIP". London's cloaked, emo-garage antihero hits next, dropping two tracks of his iconic, smudged, two step hybrid he's singularly promoted over his near-20 year dominance of the UK underground. I guess calling this megastar 'underground' in 2021 is pushing it a bit, but no one can deny Mr. Bevan has stuck firmly to his remit without ever compromising his truly original style. Anyway, lovers of his pioneering sound won't be disappointed, "Dark Gethsemane" sticks to his classic formular of coke-can drums, skitty rhythms and pitch-bent angel vox. Much like "Clausto", it has an interlude bit in the middle which drops into an even more euphoric climax towards the end, united the global optimistis with a message of love. 

Side B sees Heatmap remixed by Blackdown; "Arklight" transformed into a laser-guided beast destined for the big stages with its big wobbly bass, incessant hand claps and space-age arps. Finally, Burial completes proceedings with "Space Cadet" - a skeletal and moody number filled with hushed whispers, enchanted harps and crackles of static - again morphing into a rush of endorphins and good vibes towards the end.

Full marks all around. Limited copies - be quick!
