Archangel – Burial
There’s something I really like about Burial’s sound. Whether it’s the overall unpolished production, the crackly, fuzzy effects, the unrigid drums, with their little slips and off kilter hesitations, or those ominous, yet warm basslines - he’s doing something right to my ears. Whereas some electronic music has the life produced and polished right out of it, sounding very quantized and mechanistic, his work is like a breath of fresh air.
The violins are samples from Metal Gear Solid 2 for PS2 soundtrack, and the vocals are sampled from “One Wish by Ray-J”. They are repitched and altered to an almost unrecognizable degree.
