Ohh I've recently found out about Desolate (idm/ambient).. And.... its awesome! :D Has a lot of emotions In his music. I can hear why some may compare him to Burial but... No ! :D He is better in my opinion :) And has a lot more emotions NOT just some mixed samples and the same (too loud and annoying sometimes) beat (burial pff :D no hate just.. sick of his music :) :) And Also Desolate has some (neo?)Classical elements which fit perfectly ;D So yeah.. ~_~ Nice :D
Guys. Just because somebody makes a dark song with a 2-step beat doesn't mean they're a burial ripoff. You wouldn't call Justice a Daft Punk rip-off because they have the same beat structure and both use synths, would you? No, they both play electronic dance music, that's all. Burial makes (in general) future garage, as does this guy. That's all.
I start to wonder if there's a possibility of producing this kind of music and not be discredited because of resemblance to Burial. The legacy of Burial is so big, I guess it will take some time for some artists to come out of his shadow. But I like Desolate alot, I wouldn't call it Burial for dummies. Each to his own. He has got definitely clearer, more vivid sound, there are things that are his own and unique I would say. Celestial Light Beings is one hell of a beautiful album.
Whereas The Invisible Insurrection created a melancholic and rainy mood, Celestial Light Beings manages to produce a feeling of sun rays piercing through the rain clouds. For me, this really makes the second album not only a worthy but also a logical successor to the debut.
It is so irritating the amount of comparison and critisism regarding likeness to Burial... Some people need to listen to more records... They are completely different records this brought me back to, but this is so singular in itself... Let his music stand alone, because it can.
