About Burial

Burial is one of the most acclaimed, influential, and enigmatic musicians of the early 21st century, thanks to his groundbreaking music as well as his reluctance to reveal information about himself. Inspired by British club music, particularly garage, jungle, and hardcore, the South Londoner's tracks blend fractured breakbeats with mysterious, pitch-shifted voices and vinyl crackle, rainfall, and submerged video game sound effects, creating gloomy soundscapes evoking lonely nights spent wandering around a desolate city. While his self-titled 2006 debut received wide acclaim, the 2007 follow-up Untrue proved to be a major artistic breakthrough, widely praised and influential throughout the following decade. Collaborations with Four Tet, Thom Yorke, and Massive Attack, as well as EPs ranging from cinematic suites (2012's Kindred, 2013's Rival Dealer) to more club-friendly singles (2017's "Rodent"), have followed. He also mixed Fabriclive 100 in 2018 with Kode9 and released the ambient EP Antidawn in 2022.
