Filastine Burn It
- Words: Matt Earp
- Label: Soot
DJ/rupture's Soot label is batting a thousand for releasing records that call on Middle Eastern music, fuse the style with breakcore, hip-hop, and general beat trickery, and don't come out drenched in schmaltz. World citizen Filastine has produced the imprint's broadest release yet, filled with both with jagged edges and moments of sad sweetness. The music bespeaks a unique individual, one who's visited each and every place as an active political and musical participant with a mic in his hand. Burn It is sure to win fans across multiple scenes, with bonus points awarded for Swoon's beautiful cover art.
