It is a well known fact that nobody does it like Burial. Sure many try to emulate and imitate his style, but there is nothing like the real thing! The Kindred EP is the latest from the UK producer on Hyperdub, and once again he lives up to his reputation with three beautifully produced tracks that raise the bar for dubstep/bass music. Check the rumbing drums and goosebump-inducing atmosphere of the title track "Kindred" for a sampling of his brilliance. "Loner" comes next and continues the magic with more of a shuffling, 4x4 rhythm and hypnotic drone loops aplenty. Finally "Ashtray Wasp" closes it out on an ethereal vibe that only Burial can deliver. Three for three on this one, how does he do it? Pressed on premium 180g import vinyl, recommended.
