Burial

The first act out of the Hyperdub stable, Burial has set the bar for not only other Hyperdub acts, but also many on the dark-electronica scene with his collection of minimal beats, haunting vocals & ambient grime. Achieving critical acclaim with his s/t debut in 2006 & yet again with the follow-up LP, Untrue late last year (both on Hyperdub), Burial has taken the dubstep scene from the clubs & into the people's home & bedrooms. With a collection of sounds that bring to mind a dark sleeping city, Untrue is more like a soundtrack to the early hours just before dawn, a forgotten time were reality seems to fold in on itself & become a warm deep void - fantastic. And now with a Mercury Music Prize Nomination under his musical belt, the future certainly looks brighter for
Mr W Bevan.
