Three way pressure from a trio of frontline bass warriors- Martyn, Actress and supplying the original plate Hyperdub boss, Kode 9. The material in question is Kode 9's exclusive plate from his recent DJ Kicks set with Martyn first up on the fix; manipulating the loose skank of the original into a rolling juggernaut. Actress meanwhile loads up a linear UKF bomb jagged with hooks and a filtered bass lick.

perhaps not so innovative, given Burial's stylistic parameters, these tracks are more like a frolic, made of fragments who are like distant relatives, getting nowhere really, but still being enjoyable in their atmospheric anticipation. This is more so in the case of Nightmarket, which fits what I like to think of as lo-fi trance, as anticipated in a superb track like ashtray wasp, although with a beatless and more orchestral approach in this case. aelena
