Burial

Anonymity was part of the initial lure of Burial, a dubstep producer from London. "I love...old jungle and garage tunes, when you didn't know anything about them, and nothing was between you and the tunes," Burial was quoted as saying in a rare interview (The Guardian, October 26, 2007). "I liked the mystery; it was more scary and sexy, the opposite of other music." Anonymity, of course, has long been a quality positively associated with electronic music, going back to early years of Detroit techno, when acts such as Underground Resistance and Drexciya veiled themselves in obscurity, and even farther back to Kraftwerk, who championed the notion, "We are the robots." So it's the back story of Burial (or rather, the lack thereof), in addition to his music, that explains his great appeal to many of those well-versed in the traditions of electronic music.

Burial debuted in March 2005 on the label Hyperdub with the South London Borough EP, which included the tracks "Southern Comfort" and "Broken Home." These two tracks would be among the highlights of the full-length album Burial (2006), whose release was accompanied by a second EP, Distant Lights (2006). Comprised of bleak, evocative dubstep -- one track, "Night Bus," entirely beatless, driven only by sample rainfall and eerie synth melodies -- Burial proved critically acclaimed, most notably being voted Album of the Year by The Wire; it was also voted among the best albums of the year by Mixmag and was reviewed favorably by Pitchfork. Burial's second album, Untrue (2007), was eagerly awaited as a result of all the acclaim; an EP, Ghost Hardware (2007), was released a few months in advance, drumming up further interest. Like its predecessor, Untrue proved critically acclaimed, voted among the best albums of the year by XLR8R, for instance, and reviewed by Pitchfork even more favorably than its predecessor. On the other hand, Untrue, also like its predecessor, proved polarizing, as more than a few -- especially those outside the media -- considered the album to be overhyped.

In February 2008, British newspaper The Independent made a claim that William Bevan, indeed a native of South London, was the individual behind Burial. Bevan later confirmed the report, continued to record under his alias, and issued several collaborative works with the likes of former schoolmate Kieran Hebden (Four Tet), Thom Yorke, Massive Attack, and Jamie Woon. He issued three additional Hyperdub EPs -- Street Halo, Kindred, and Truant -- in 2011 and 2012. A Japanese CD release combined the first two. Bevan's 2013 was quiet until that December, when he released a three-track EP for Hyperdub. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi

Only gripe (if you could call it that) is too much use of the knock drum sound...its a nice sound here and there, but its in nearly every song and it homogenizes his otherwise brilliant work. Still...the man is a master and if you haven't kicked back and listened to his world of sound, you are in for a massive treat.

He had nothing to do with dubstep you stupid f**ks!
It's music like this that keep me grounded. Thanx Burial

Actually, this guy isn't a dubstep producer. He was pre-dubstep, and actually brought on the wave of wub wub wub dubstep in 2008. He's practically the inventor of the genre.
Burial's music is too calm... We need more bass drops! :D
I'm in love with you.
amymillis8
He also released another EP a few weeks ago.
Damn Pandora, you need to update the discography. The dude released another self-titled about a year ago.
Yea, yea, that's about RIGHT!!!

Burial = GOD

I like it.

overrated? really? I have never heard of this guy is he famous in the UK? only two words come to mind for me: "slept...on" . this guy's awesome. like the anonymous thing too, nice touch... makes me wanna do something like that...gotta be hard to pull off.
BURIAL is genius. He made his own world and we got to go in and dig it. Every single person I turned on to BURIAL all said the same thing, he's awesome. I'm hungry for the next selection.
I LOVE IT GREAT FOR BACK ROUND MUSIC
AMAZING RELAXS MY CRAZY A**!!!:-)
Honestly, I think Burial is overrated. Not terrible mind you, just overrated.
"Burial" was good. "Untrue" is simply amazing. It's so unfortunate that more people on Pandora haven't heard of Burial; this is some of the most beautiful music you'll ever hear. It's not quite made for Pandora- more for listening to the whole album on headphones at night- but still, amazing.
Love this artist.. so mysterious and deep.

Untrue is incredible.
adaibloom
I own and like this album very much, but, damn it all, there is something missing. Spaceape song is a waste and does not flow with the rest of the tracks. A lot of good stuff here, but as I said, it is missing an elusive element that just renders the album overhyped.
this guy inspired me to make dubstep... hes my favorite, some of the best tracks i've ever heard!
scwilli88
Untrue is one of the most hauntingly beautiful albums I have ever heard.
