A BRUTALIST BLOW. A DARK EXERCISE IN PROGRESSION. A PUZZLE THAT OUTLIVES THE EXECUTION OF HARMONY.
Vanta is a construction for the savage. It reaches the profane along with the cryptical. The EP includes 5 tracks in which Zomby redetermines his access to techno by developing a language that is archaic. A language that is his own.
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
