about

With releases on a who’s who list of labels that are pushing experimental, underground house and techno including L.I.E.S, Creme Organisation, Echovolt and Strange Life, William Burnett has been steadily putting out releases that have gained a lot of respect without shouting too loud about it.

So much so that as well as running his own stella WT Records label, William is now often cited as a producer’s producer. Deep and full of dub aesthetics that encompasses a world of it’s own, his music is not just driven by a need to keep the floor moving, but are also about taking your headspace somewhere else.

Progressing things a stage further is the Black Deer project. Recently launched, but in gestation for some time, it’s introspective slant, plus loose referencing to his upbringing in Texas, allows William more freedom for experimentation.

The Last Tortuga is taken from the same sessions that yielded the Willie Burns The Overlord EP on Trilogy Tapes as well as Black Deer’s Trail Of Tears EP on Rush Hour, this 6 track EP has been due on the label for sometime, but it’s been worth the wait as his sound has developed and expanded to take in ambient, drone and krautrock and highlights his musicianship in a new light.
