Burial - Street Halo (12")
Emerging from the half-light is the three-track Burial drop, landing down - where else - but Kode 9's Hyperdub imprint. Nearly four years of 'post-Burial' music has passed since the Londoner last gave us solo material, here he is back with a vengeance to remind us what we've been missing. The lead is swarming with that crackle and hiss, spectral far-off rhythms punctuating the gloom, whilst 'NYC' is a skulk through dank 2-step-caverns, the timestretch Burial vox always there. Finally 'Stolen Dog' is a beautiful exercise in handsome beat-minimalism.
