Special Request returns taking no prisoners with a fierce battery of snarling, belligerent, machine-funk of the highest order across a 6 track EP. Atoms are smashed, vapour clouds sent into the ether, chaos is controlled, tamed and rendered in 6 different shades of wrong… also features a deliciously spannered rework by Peder Mannerfelt to close out the ceremony…

perhaps not so innovative, given Burial's stylistic parameters, these tracks are more like a frolic, made of fragments who are like distant relatives, getting nowhere really, but still being enjoyable in their atmospheric anticipation. This is more so in the case of Nightmarket, which fits what I like to think of as lo-fi trance, as anticipated in a superb track like ashtray wasp, although with a beatless and more orchestral approach in this case. aelena
