Stream Burial’s New ‘Rival Dealer’ EP
Though it was earlier reported that the new EP from shadowy Hyperdub icon Burial would be released on December 16, the UK imprint surprisingly elected to make the three-song effort available a week early. Even better, all three tracks from the Rival Dealer EP (artwork above) have been posted online and can be heard in their entirety.
In truth, the vinyl versions of Rival Dealer won’t surface until next week, but the tunes can already be purchased digitally here. For those looking to give the tracks a listen first, Hyperdub have posted full streams on YouTube, which we’ve posted below. We’ve only been able to give the songs a cursory listen so far, but they do seem to find the mysterious UK producer delving into some new sonic territory. Much like his past few efforts, the songs here are elongated and could be described as having movements, but the sound palette has shifted somewhat; “Come Down to Us” even has a vaguely holiday vibe to it. Add in some unexpectedly political samples, and Rival Dealer is certainly an intriguing new chapter in the Burial saga.
Disclosure to release remix album featuring DJ Premier, Larry Heard and more
The Lawrence brothers enlist some legendary talent for a remix album.
Disclosure will cap off a star-making 2013 with a remix album, due out on December 17. While details are scarce, it is said to feature remixes by hip-hop legend DJ Premier, house veteran Larry Heard, up-and-comer Kaytranada, and more.
The inclusion of DJ Premier is a coup for the pair: the one-timeFACT mixers spoke with FACT earlier this year about Detroit hip-hop group Slum Village’s Fantastic Volume 2; there’s clearly plenty of rap in their background.
Disclosure scored a #1 album in the UK with Settle and just received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronica Album. They also teamed-up with Nile Rodgers and friends for the funkfest ‘Together’.

Riva Starr Announces ‘Eat Sleep Rave Repeat’ Tour
Following Riva Starr’s club smashing collaboration with Fatboy Slim – ‘Eat Sleep Rave Repeat’ featuring vocals from Beardyman, Riva Starr has announced an American ‘Eat Sleep Rave Repeat’ tour which kicks off at Slake in New York on Thursday the 12th of December.
Riva Starr burst into the electronic music scene in 2009 with a
refreshing take on Latin house for some of the most respected
underground dance labels like Get Physical, Dirtybird and Made to
Play. A prolific producer and internationally in-demand club DJ, Riva
swiftly proceeded to confound his fledgling fan base with Balkan
beat behemoth “I Was Drunk” which has since amassed well over 8
million views on YouTube.
Riva is set to release the next in a series of remix EPs on the 16th
of December ‘Deep In Hand’ featuring remixes from Jesse Rose, NiCe7 & H.O.S.H followed by ‘Bass In Hand’ on the 6th of January and the full remix album in February.
December Tour Dates
12th New York – Slake
13th Toronto – EFS
14th Miami – Space
16th Los Angeles – Monday Night Social @ Sound
19th Austin – Kingdom Nightclub
