Burial, aka Will Bevan, is a producer from South London, England. His eponymous debut album was released in 2006 to critical acclaim. The Wire magazine named it their album of the year and it came fifth in the Mixmag 2006 Album of the Year list.
On Friday, September 28th 2007, a new Burial album was announced, and Untrue was released 6 weeks later on November 5th.
Although both albums have been met with much critical acclaim, Burial remained anonymous until August 2008, stating in a past interview that “only five people know I make tunes”.
In February 2008, The Independent reported that Burial was an alumnus of south London’s Elliott School named William Bevan (another alumnus, Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, said in 2006 that Burial was in the year above him). The school’s alumni also include Kieran Hebden, with whom Bevan has collaborated.
Bevan’s music is known for a lack of emphasis on bass, contrasting with other dubstep artists.
