Burial - Chemz


Recommended Posts

I can't be the only one who mentally associates Burial, Christmas, and a classic watmm post from years back...I'm sure it was @jules who described putting the household to bed, retreating to the study to sit by the fire, sip scotch, and relax with the latest Burial 3 track ep crackling in the background...at least that's how I remember it. I could be completely wrong here and this is a false memory I implanted.

this is why i still look forward to a new burial every year. 
this track does absolutely none of this for me. 

anyway - i am glad lots of people can enjoy this. it just bums me out.

Probably all of you are right, those of you who love him and who hate him! Im not a huge fan of his music but I’m still glad he exists! Nothing more.


Leave Britney alone!

Ok yea, so this is the hardest he’s gone in on the 90s cheese. But at least tastefully. I could not stand Caustro. Rodent was hot trash to me. Subtemple And Beachfires, however, are amongst my favorites. I find it hilarious that he is referencing a part of music that I had to deal with because that was my time. I mean, fuck, this is borderline Snap The Power shit. At the same time, it’s like, damn  who broke your heart so bad, William?

The vocals are so high in the mix that it is fucking grating. Just like the Thom and Fourtet tracks. But I’ll be damned if Her Revolution didn’t grow like a fucking weed. 

Anyway, my only complaint is the low end. Thanks for the crackle. The shuffle is there. Sounds like Burial. Sounds like another shift. But, maybe forgot to push the switch on the 60 hz and below? 

Also, all is forgiven from 8 minutes on. 

But that 9:50 mark.. 

Burial delivers Christmas again. Burial is Santa.

Yeah lack of low end bothers me a bit but think its an aesthetic choice..he is going phone speakers on back of bus stylee...infact reminds me more of listening to shitty quality rave tapes with mates on bus to school on shitty Walkman one earphone each! Ahh good old days

Also seem to remember it got a lot of hate at the time but recommend pairing this with his inner city life remix for more of that vibe! 

Ohh and agree on her revolution being a grower...starting to really fall in love with it now (still not really feeling the other track though)

Spiral, are you still working in a prison?  I would've thought this was perfect for bonding with your clients.


DJ Khaled and like 1000 shitty trap and drill rappers are more their speed tbh.

No joke I had a legit bit of baader meinhof phenomenon when I learned DJ Khaled was a thing. At the exact same time I was working in the department that processed parcels coming in for prisoners. And 90% of them suddenly contained Khaled's new CD.

Burial wrote parts of this on poppers? 

Sounds like he's having a blast and some giggles. Possibly lockdown sent him slightly bonkers? Believe he has his tongue firmly in his cheek. Fun cool track.

The Burial Christmas thing is real.

Every year, by the time it hits December, he is anxiously eyeing that Advent Calendar knowing he has to deliver the goods to WATMM.

He's probably relaxing now and thinking 'Phew. That's that shit sorted for another year.'

      Happy Holidays all
      As the scene's keenest scribe-cum-producer, Blackdown's blog and Keysound label were at the core of the genre’s early sound, placing him in proximity to key players including Burial. Like we mentioned, Burial’s remix of ‘Crackle Blues’ in 2006 was, just like his debut 12”, sorely overlooked at the time, and remains one of his tightest and most effective garagey/woodblock productions.
      On the ’Shock Power Of Love’ EP they check in 15 years later for a 2-step pow wow, passing the peace-pipe over cuts of Detroit-inspired garage and deep-fried, crispy London soul music. Blackdown gives clear nods to his 313 inspiration on both sides, framing his restless subs and garage swing with sampled, house declarations and soaring pads in ‘The Journey VIP’ while nodding to Juan Atkins and Red Planet via Geeneus in a remix of Heatmap’s ‘Arklight.’ Burial is at his signature best on the other two, frothing choral vocals into a scissored 2-step shuffle on ‘Dark Gethsemane’ before rolling out fathoms deep into the iridescent trance leads and scalp-stroking Reese bass licks of ’Space Cadet.’

      It's Christmas. That means one thing. Or maybe not.
      Would rather have had one killer Christmas track than staggered eps of blandness all year.
      What say the WATMM massif?

      Out on Friday. I know, the 'Burial' sound is something everyone either likes or doesn't. Sometimes I think it's nothing more than some crackling effects and tape hiss but probably there is more to it than that.
      Personally, I love the Burial mix on this. The other tracks are also good.
