Burial’s classic album ‘Untrue’ has today turned one decade old.
Released 10-years-ago to the day on Hyperdub, the record is host to blissful cuts such as ‘Archangel’, ‘Shell of Light’, ‘Ghost Hardware’ and more, and stamped Burial’s name in stone as one of the highest praised producers in electronic music despite being – until this day – relatively unknown.
The impact of this album on electronic music is something of a phenomenon, and it is still being attributed by artists today as influence on their own work. Looking into our own backyard for examples, artists such as Kllo, Christopher Port and Willaris. K are just some of the up-and-coming names in the Australian scene who are clearly inspired by Burial, particularly this album, joining the likes of Shlohmo, Tourist and even Flume as those who have looked to the acclaimed, mysterious producer for musical motivation in carving out their own sound.
