Junior said:I think pleasingly pleasant is a pretty apt description in that it's nice enough but not really blowing me away. Perhaps it rewards further listens though?

You have to kinda fear a Massive Attack vs Burial release is going to be all hype and tepid product. Too many acts passed their best work hope getting the hip young producer to give them a remix will reinvigorate their sound. But it just ends up with a weak version of both acts.
But I think Burial did a good job, IMO you get a strong flavour of both acts, which is hard to accomplish. It reminds me of Massive Attack vs Mad Professor, that I played to death in my teens, I guess it helps that they all have a common music 'ancestry'.
I played it several times on repeat when it came out on utube, but I definitely have a soft spot for 'this kind of thing'.

Ulysses31nicholas said:i guess "dubstep the genre" is long gone now, skrillex killed that. you have a few guys left that play something of the traditional variety (djs like NType for example) but overwhelmingly the trend is for dubby, experimental tracks that utitlise more of a house template that a 130 dubstep one.
pearson sound aka ramadanman always seems to get it right at that tempo though, his new stuff is all storming, and have a listen to his chicago flavour release under alias maurice donovan
i like the Mosca "BAX / Done Me Wrong", that's old school garage though. biggest bassline in the game right now. his new techno 12 is great too (wavey ep)
new floating points is amazing, perhaps the best yet, but not finished yet i think, heard it the other day (pearson played it). You can pick up the danger 7" tho, thats a lovely slice of analog techno with 2 locked grooves on the flip.
kuedo is really great too.
oh and if you love that sort of cartoonish, mohawke chaos the rustie lp is ace from start to finish.
i'm just listening to old basic channel shit at the moment, and maurizio stuff. who needs dubstep when you've got dubtechno.
Nothing new on offer really in this track but predictably I absolutely love it. Pretty much ticks every box in my nostalgia list (all it really needed was a breakdown half way through with an eighties sci fi film sample over synths and it would be complete).

Loved the soundclips, but the copy I got in the post is either warped or pressed slightly off-centre. Is there any point in asking Fatcity for a refund? Has anybody got a copy that isn't wonky?
