I feel like for every track I’m posting, the “Sounds like” section ends up being filled by the ubiquitous Burial. Detboi & MIsta Me does, in fact, sound like Burial, but in a very different way than anything else I’ve posted.
It’s quite hard to tell where Detboi is coming from on “Sanctuary of Love” — half of it sounds like he’s a disciple of the gloomy underground step purveyed by Burial et al, whereas the other half is more reminiscent of recent guilty pleasure “Blind Faith” by Chase & Status. To describe them as halves does a disservice to Detboi though, because these aren’t separate entities — they intertwine perfectly.
While Detboi may have spent his fair share of time at raves in the early 90s, it appears he also knows his way around the record shops of South London very well — metaphorically speaking, if nothing else. From that, he’s produced this track, which is a real gem. It’s euphoria meets relaxation and dub meets rave; this is definitely a track for dancing and chilling. Look out for the EP, Curse of the Voodoo Drums Pt. 2, which is coming soon on Cheap Thrills.
