Burial - Complete

Burial (William Beven) is a south london based dubstep producer, who, until last year, had chosen to remain anonymous, hes even said that of the people that knew him personally only 5 maybe knew he was making music.  Lauded by the likes of Flying Lotus (they even have a collab.) He is a highly influential, highly respected pioneer of the genre.  He's on Kode9's hyperdub label now.  I'd descibe his music as this very ghostly super dark, ethereal, machine.  Imagine rainy london night with bullet shells dropping right and left.  The atmosphere he creates is really tight. He's the face of the word Haunt-ing.  One problem is his releases are all very similar, and im worried he doesn't have much more room with the sound he's created, but really, what a sound it is a lot of 2step Garage influence, uses alot of soul-ish samples for vocals.

So, here's basically Everything he ever did on a few .zip files (sorry if you dont like that idea)

These .zips include the following:
Burial - LP (2006) (awesome more garage-y then his later lp)
Untrue - LP (2007) (his best work, really came into his own here)
South London Boroughs - EP (night train not to be confused with night bus)
Ghost Hardware - EP (shutta is probably one of my favorites by him)
Distant Lights - EP (just an awesome kode 9 remix)

A few Remixes:
Thom Yorke - And It Rained All Night (Burial Remix)
Jamie Woon - Wayfaring Stranger (Burial Remix)
Blackdown - Crackle Blues (Burial Remix)

And finally some of his unreleased tracks:
Burial - 'Stairwell' (sorry guys its just a rip)
Burial - 'Unite' (One of his best/most accessible songs)
Burial - Versus (that basss)
