Boomkat Product Review:
**NOW AVAILABLE IN FLAC FORMAT** Due to ridiculous demand from a ravenous dubstep audience, Hyperdub finally do the right thing and issue 3 of the best tracks from the now legendary Burial album, with the added bonus of a hot bashment remix of 'distant lights' from label head Kode 9. The remix of 'distant lights' morphs the original's blissed melodrama into a usefully squelchy hot stepper, optimized for maximum club effect, rectifying a common gripe for many lesser skilled DJs that Burial's material just isn't mixable (practice mate!). The real good stuff comes with the original mix of 'distant lights', the instantly recognisable opener to many heads soundtrack to the summer, cruising into sight with a bilious bassline, pregnant with rarified mood altering substance only found in the most particular compositions. The vinyl cut here only adding to its towering majesty, each crackle and snare bite amplified for full effect. The same applies to the much needed vinyl cut of 'pirates' on the flip, whose initial bass drop hits twice as deep as the CD version, precipitating the irresistably swung steppers rhythm writhing about sacred spaces populated with spectral MCs and bassbin emissions of raves gone by. Taking us to his final resting place, 'gutted' emotes a mournful sentiment, perhaps best spun at a wake when all the dancers can muster is a heads down shuffle in honour of the dearly departed. In lieu of any new Burial material in the near future, this will have to satiate your appetite for now, but needless to say, this should leave you feeling fat as f*ck.
