Burial - Burial

Part of the series Milestones in Music

(2006)

I stumbled upon this album on bleep.com by mistake. What a find. So dirty. So atmospheric. Nothing like "normal" Dub Step. Really in a genre of his own. It also helped that he (William Bevan) remained very anonymous for a very long time. No interviews, no real name, nothing. The lines spoken by Benicio del Toro and Forrest Whittaker (I believe they are real samples and not re-creations) help set the spooky mood of the album.
