March was good. Extraordinary. With lots of exciting music just emerging out of nowhere.
Here’s a selection of 20 tracks who made March somewhat special for me.
In no particular order, except for Stolen Dog. It’s better than anything else. Could easily become my favorite track of the year.
The whole Street Halo 12” is insane, and we haven’t even heard his Home Counties LP yet. Haha.
Burial - Stolen Dog
All good, off course.
“This Monday, Burial will release his first full solo release in over 4 years. A three track 12” to be released on Hyperdub, the A-side is titled “Street Halo”, with two supporting tracks “NYC” and “Stolen Dog”.”
UPDATE: first play tonight by Kode9 on Benji B.

You could download their free mixtape over there, which includes some stand-out music by Pariah, Madlib, These New Puritans, Liars and others. Next to their wonderful Burial/Four Tet Moth rework.
“Nowadays those [R&B] vocals really sit in your subconscious…. I think using them taps into a massive subconscious in our generation…. People don’t just want to hear them straight; they want to hear echoes of them in their dance music.”
