- TAV // Essential Listening -

During the nascent stages of dubstep’s evolution in South London, the sudden emergence of
Burial’s game-changing, self-titled debut LP on Hyperdub in 2006 proved to be a seismic shift in
the dimly-lit, reverb-drenched UK bass underground. Dystopic and claustrophobic, Burial
provided the listener with a truly immersive experience of the nocturnal melancholy and urban
atmospherics that was characteristic of pre-dawn London. Often lauded as the first critically
acclaimed dubstep album which brought the genre to the fore, Burial elevated the dark and grim
offshoot of 2-step to new heights with his ability to mingle an array of found sounds, ghostly
vocal samples, layers of lugubrious synths and subterranean basslines into a cohesive whole.
With his identity hidden at the time of release, the enigma of Burial only served to intensify the
eerie and oppressive soundscapes crafted on the album.
