CAS and Boiler Room present Contemporary Classics #003: Burial “Untrue.” with Benji B & Blackdown

Our series of album-focused podcasts with Boiler Room continues with a celebration of Burial’s mysterious masterpiece “Untrue.”, which turned 10 the day of this talk.

Two heroes of the UK underground dance culture – BBC/Deviation’s Benji B & Keysound’s Blackdown – sat down with Boiler Room’s Gabriel Szatan to discuss everything that fed into Hyperdub’s stone-cold classic. Focus on rave euphoria, FWD>>, night buses, El-B’s drum techniques and much more inside.

As a special treat for the heads, “True Love (VIP)” and the alternate version of “U Hurt Me” are included on this podcast, their first official outing on tape in many years. Have fun hunting those out.

The series returns in 2018. Keep warm over the holidays by listening to previous Classic Album Sundays talks on Radiohead, J Dilla, Roni Size & Wolfgang Voigt’s GAS here.
