Last week, the elusive Burial dropped Rival Dealer, his brilliant new EP (which is not only the best EP of the year but also possibly his best work to date) via Hyperdub. Today, it's available in physical formats and over the weekend, Burial shared this message:
"I put my heart into the new EP, I hope someone likes it. I wanted the tunes to be anti-bullying tunes that could maybe help someone to believe in themselves, to not be afraid, and to not give up, and to know that someone out there care and is looking out for them. So it's like an angel's spell to protect them against the unkind people, the dark times, and the self-doubts."
