Burial Samples on Untrue
Ten years ago, South London-based electronic musician Burial released his influential second album, Untrue on Hyperdub. This album probably has done more than any other record in recent history to shape electronic music. One the one hand the album was a personal diary, convincingly describing a specific time and mood in a persons life. On the other hand it were his rudimentary but novel production techniques. Burial Samples included sounds from the video game Metal Gear Solid and acapellas from RnB artists and random youTube sensations. While his peers were using sophisticated DAWs like Logic, Reason and Ableton, he resorted to a simple audio editing tool called Burial used Soundforge. In this video Resident Advisor explores how Burial samples and his production methods contributed to the album’s success.
