A man with each one of his fingers in a different pie, William Burnett could never be accused of being lazy. Head of his own W.T Records, he also manages Brooklyn’s famed digging spot/pile of vinyl The Thing, DJ’s around the world and releases music under a handful of aliases. The last few years have been particularly busy for Burnett, with the releases coming thick and fast on a series of the underground’s most féted labels including L.I.E.S, The Trilogy Tapes, Créme Organisation and Unknown To The Unknown. Its on the latter’s sub label Hot Haus that his latest piece of wax lands, with‘I Wanna Love You’ EP being delivered under his Willie Burns moniker. As with all of Burnett’s ‘Willie Burns’ material, the EP is a rough and ready collection of charmingly simplistic club cuts – expertly toeing the thin line between artful brilliance and cliché. Receiving heavy support from his peers, the record is yet another achievement from the restless music obsessive.
