Burial, the influential and elusive dubstep artist has just dropped his first new solo music of 2017, after releasing a remix of jungle legend Goldie’s ‘Inner City Life’ last month.
These two new tracks, ‘Subtemple’ and ‘Beachfires’ are much more ambient than previous efforts from the artist, much more like soundscapes than his beat-driven releases. Subtemple is a soft and looping lull of vocal samples and vinyl crackle, while Beachfires is a distant and reverb laden work, that sounds like its been recorded in a cathedral instead of Audacity, the prehistoric music software the artist is said to use.
You can listen to them below, and downloads are available from the Hyperdub Bandcamp. The physical record comes out next Friday, with preorders available as well as from reputable record shops.
