With the news that enigmatic London-based producer Burial is set to release a new compilation of tunes, Getintothis’ Max Richardson brings you the latest.
One of the big guns of electronic music in the twenty-first century, Burial, has announced the upcoming release of Tunes 2011-2019, a compilation including works chosen from nearly a decade of EP releases.
The enigmatic producer originally burst onto the rave scene in 2005 with the release of EP South London Boroughs, compiling previous tracks by William Bevan, the man underneath the moniker of Burial.
History clearly repeats itself, as in 2019 we’re now once again set to be treated to a specially curated selection of tracks from the majority of the 2010s, neatly compiled across two discs.
Burial famously fuses elements of a wide range of electronic styles to craft a unique sound, with influence taken from garage, jungle and downtempo.
He received acclaim from critics and audiences alike for tracks such as the anthemic Archangel, which has continued to set fire to dance floors in underground clubs since its original release in 2007.
Tunes 2011-2019 compiles tracks released predominantly as singles and EPs to produce a 17-track LP sequenced by Burial himself.
The LP is set to release on Hyperdub to round off their celebrations marking 15 years as a label.
Tunes 2011-2019 compiles tracks which collectively chart the evolution of the producer following the release of 2007s Untrue.
Burial’s works have consistently achieved acclaim, with the producer now well and truly being in the spotlight of the UK electronic scene.
The new LP created by sequencing tracks from EPs released in the last decade is set to be a treat to hear, and will no-doubt highlight Burial’s strongest works.
Tunes 2011-2019 will release on 6 December on Hyperdub.
