First issued in 2004, W/ The Artists compiles the Burial Mix vocal cuts taken from BM-08 through to BM-13. Little remains to be said about what is inarguably one of the most most important and cited collections in all of electronic music - an influence which remains inescapably present to this day.
As always we find Mark n Moritz behind the desk, the humid caverns of their previous R&S work repurposed into a more spacious forward dub motion - built with such care and respect providing ample room for each collaborator to burst through the deep malaise of their techno informed dub rhythms.
Completely out of time and future-proofed, there’s almost nothing out there which carries a legacy of this calibre - the innovators of the sound and still never bettered despite the legions of disciples and countless attempts to replicate without so much as scratching the surface.
It’s pressed up every couple of years, but copies never hang around for long - if you don’t know just get to know. (Mint / New)
