"Toward the end of 2018, NYC based Pro Skateboarder Yaje Popson dropped a note to Hyperdub saying how much Burial's Untrue album meant to him explaining it had got me through the best and worst times of my life.
In the note, he asked if it was possible to collaborate on his first skateboard deck design and said that, 'music is such an important aspect in skateboarding culture, practically all the music we listen comes from the videos we watch. '
'The album's city soundscape resonates, because as a skater I am constantly engulfed in the streets of the metropolis, looking for skate spots amongst the rat race of Gotham “on the other side of the page” Sometimes in the most sketchy of neighborhoods or the darkest of alleyways we find ourselves but skateboarding gives us this reason to explore and appreciate the grittiness of city life.'
It can be rare for something real and genuine and chilled to happen, but the authenticity, passion and sincerity of Yaje's note & resonated with Burial. They both do what they do straight from the heart. It's resulted in a beautiful low key skateboard design. This board has been developed through genuine collaboration, with ideas being passed back and forth between Alien Workshop's designer Joe Castrucci and Burial . We're all really happy with how this has come out and hope you like it too."
