The three-track EP is a reflection of Burial’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of his sound, eschewing the off-kilter beats of old for something that’s eerie, yet also serene, and bereft of any drum patterning.

LORD APEX - "JOGA BONITO"

Lord Apex partners with El Lif Beatz with “Joga Bonito”, paying tribute to the style of football which inspired the project’s name. The ten-track album represents a combination of laidback, jazz-inflected instrumentals and Lord Apex’s buttery-smooth lyricism.  

MALIBU - "SO FAR OUT OF LOVE"

Malibu announces her long-awaited EP, “Palace of Pity”, by releasing the project’s lead single: “So Far Out of Love”. The track showcases the ethereal sound that has long been at the core of Malibu’s work, combining luscious, atmospheric pads and celestial vocals.
