UNBURIED: The Lost Tracks of Burial - Production Competition

UNBURIED: The Lost Tracks of Burial

It’s 2024 and Hyperdub have just found a flash drive in the drawer of a desk in a back office being used for storage. The word “Burial” is scrawled across a scuffed white label in black biro. It’s probably just the premasters from the first two albums right? Nothing to get excited about. But… what if… Tentatively they boot up the drive and there is one folder titled “Unused

Surely not…

Imagine if Burial had kept some tracks back from those two seminal albums.
What would they sound like?

Anyone else sleeps forgot to tag? Maybe @Dubstep_Warrior? I mean, cuz when I think of Burial I think of tories… :smirk:

But srsly, great selection going here. Was interested in the vocal samples especially, that’s like 45% of the sound between pads and snippets.

Oh and don’t forget, according to SDOR (some dude on Reddit) Burial tunes are actually in 11/8 time so, uh, yeah. There you go.
