The Breakage and El-B collabs were sub par. Just felt like someone trying to make a Burial tune and doing it badly.

The Goldie collab was interesting. It actually felt like a collab rather than an exterior source watering down Burial's sound.

I really like the Four Tet tunes. They don't come close to Burial's solo material though.

(The El-B one is a collab btw. For some reason El-B didn't put his name on it on the album. Probably because it's shit.)

Do not read this.
It's all about

Ah Corpsey since you posted that it’s prompted me to listen to that Burial/Kode 9 mix again. Except the crappy Zomby tune at the start, that whole mix is amazing, some don’t like the rain/sampling over the top but I think that really adds to the atmosphere (I could imagine this set in a club with loads of fucking psychedelic/dark/saw film type visuals on the walls and on the ceiling, proper fuck people up), also the tune selection after that (bar the zomby, cooly g one and a couple after the prince tune) is fucking top form. The prince tune I especially love.

Edit, and I fucking LOVE the theo parrish one. SICK

Is it just me or does anyone else feel like a lot of the soul jazz output is producer's offcuts. I seldom hear anything they put out that is anything like the top of the producer's output apart from a few years ago with the misty winter/earth a run red/ladybug 12s. Constantly underwhelmed by their output within the 'bass continuum'

I agree, even the 2nd box of dub release was weak.

seconded. though box of dub 2 had that ramadanman track which was amazing (every second day?). prob doesnt help that they seem to pick stuff that fits more with the rootsier/archival/just old stuff in their catalogue.
 

mms

sometimes
thats a really lazy tracklisting tbh. i suppose its alright if they are just going for a greatist hits 08-09 kind of thing but still
if you want a comp that introduces you track by track to a hard to pin down genre, with no hits, and not much in the way of presence it's a really great comp.
