:? some things are best left as they are
by remixing that tune you can only really make it less good.

edit: my last post sounded pretty harsh looking back -
Not that i dont like the remix, but i just dont think that tune really needs remixing - liking the skills tho. biggup.

yeah. like they know shit about the artist. dont even know his name. reminds me of those teenage kids who believe that the vocalist of their favorite band is speaking directly to them.

fucking hilarious for days :lol:

so Mad Decent is somehow behind this???


doesn't surprise me as they've built their whole reputation on co-opting other's work and reselling it to fabulous downtown trend-hoppers... from baile funk to booty music to now... burial?

Sigh.
dont worry.
bunch of 12 year olds and fanboys on here these days.
like this is the first time someone has done something like this !
some people actually do get what you are trying to do though.

hi-5 for making a simple edit to work into your sets.
i bet in a bmore/hiphouse/2steppy kind of set it would be pleasent.

i just wouldnt have given it out if i was you, and made sure it said edit and not remix....oh well.

Fair play, burial remix getting played out is no bad thing, because he is really too ambient to be danceable.

Of course it don't have to be as good as original.

How are the drums not on time? :? It uses a straight forward 2step-swing that goes easily with any 2step tune.
sorry, I mean "in time", dunno if it makes any difference to say "on" or "in" time, my english is not that good :) he confirmed that in the first ever interview and I don't think he ran to a shop to get a sequencer after the first album's success. the drum patterns don't sound any less distorted in the new album to me. anyway, I guess djs just notice it's tricky to beatmatch his tunes even if they haven't read the interview. but here you go... (an if that's not the matter, than why the hell so few people play them tunes? :))

B: So I thought to myself fuckit I’m going to stick to this shitty little computer program, Soundforge. I don’t know any other programs. Once I change something, I can never un-change it. I can only see the waves. So I know when I’m happy with my drums because they look like a nice fishbone. When they look just skeletal as fuck in front of me, and so I know they’ll sound good.

M: So you don’t use a sequencer?

B: No.

M: So does that mean your drums are not necessarily in time?

B: My drums are definitely not necessarily in time. When I try and do drums that are too regimented, they lose something. But the moment I put drums where I think they sound good, rather than in time, they seem to have that roll, the swing of the jungle and garage tunes I love.

B: Some of the elements in the drums that make that swing are the ones that don’t fit in to a time signature and that are out. The little bits that are wrong. If I used a sequencer my tunes would sound rubbish.

Yeah, I mean that goes for all 2-step really, given the different amounts of shuffle and different types of syncopation.

I don't get this attitude, Burial has a lot of danceable tunes, South London Boroughs has more energy than loads of tracks i've heard. Burial's tunes have so much rhythm its hard to dance when you hear them for me.

It's the fact that it is so skittery and swung that gives it that feel i find, excessively quantised 4x4, particularly without much hat action going on strips a tune of its energy i tend to find.

And as for burial saying his tunes would be shit with a sequencer, he kinda proved himself wrong with Unite didn't he?
