Ziúr – Resident Advisor Podcast 545

I don’t get this mix by Ziúr or the music in it.

Quite simply, it is anti-music. A cacophony of noise based on some bastardised combination of dubstep, grime, bass and breaks, with screeching, snippets of jazz, touches of metal, various industrial noises, girly vocals and odd samples.

Sounds awful, doesn’t it?

I hated it at first but it has a bizarre charm, the buckets of unpredictability and the sharp twists into new musical paradigms give it this sense of intrigue. Languid yet occasionally intense – it isn’t something that should scare you on a BPM front.

Kind of pointless for me to attempt to describe the flow or the journey of this mix by Ziúr – and it really stands contrary to anything else I write about.

Maybe it is just my lack of understanding of it that makes me rate it highly – a bizarrely well-constructed sheet of anti-music.

It really shouldn’t work. I should hate it. But yet I keep listening to it.

Enjoyment rating of 6.20.
