Look at the videos for the new Burial tunes ("Truant"/"Rough Sleeper"), which can be purchased here. "Truant":
And "Rough Sleeper":
The first video: the city; the next, outer space. Rings a bell? No? You do not read my work...
In case you are among the unfortunate few who do not know a thing about this Burial character, his real names is William Bevan, his city is London, his music is often categorized as dubstep, and his fame began on April 4, 2006, when a mix by his mentor and label owner Kode9 was broadcast on Mary Anne Hobbs's BBC radio show Breeze- block. The mix opened with lots of scratchy sounds, hisses, electrical discharges, echoes of damned Rasta men, and then, when the confusion cleared, the mix broke into a beat that sounded like a train racing across a ghostly city. The train (the beat) was real; the world it traversed was not. After two minutes of this rattling, tapping, clanking momentum, the mix rose up to the mesosphere (the region where meteorites vaporize) with an ambient tune that looped the fifth track on Brian Eno's Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks with the sound of a mourning angel. The self-titled album that Burial released in 2006 (his first masterpiece) is like the train section of the Breezeblock mix, and Kindred (his second masterpiece) is like the ambient, celestial part.
The person behind those videos is like the person inside my head.
