And now for something a little bit different.

A lesson in Dubstep.

Dubstep 2009 = Music yer nan would shit her pants too. Wubs getting Wubber, electro sounds more electrifying.

Dubstep 2006 = Burial.

Burial is a guy who everyone thought was Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim) before he revealed his identity and was actually a no-one from Saaaffff London who 'just likes making tunes'. Good on him. His 'Dubstep' is completly different to the sound of what people refer to the genre these days, and uses a sort of two step garage beat - and it works so fuckin' well. If you like M83, Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada...imagine that but with the grime of London weaved into the music.

On his myspace, some fan describes his music to a tee:

'I think it deserves to be said... your music reminds me of those moments when I return home from a club night and the evening's experience is burning itself in my brain... I might remember a vocal here, a bassline there... Whatever the case may be, your music fills in the gaps. The Burial sound is like the music that an experienced club-goer will hear on their deathbed. It is that intense.'

If that aint a tagline I don't know what is. His music is intensely heartfelt and emotional and also is the kind of music that gives you a tingle. If you can, get your hands on his debut album 'Untrue' for it is epic, and has soared in to my favourite albums, ever.

Burial - Archangel

If you have a music taste, and appreciate this amazing music, you will love his new single - produced with Four tet.

I have both the video (check it) and the lovely mp3 just for you.

Moth - Burial and Four Tet.
