The mysterious electronic legend Burial is set to release a 3-track EP December 16 on Kode9‘s Hyperdub. Keeping his Christmas traditions in line, the tunes will follow last December 17′s ‘Traunt / Rough Sleeper’ – also released on the imprint – to continue 2013′s production patience. This is all we know for now with little being said in the mail-out from Hyperdub‘s distributor Cargo Records, but it does suggest some ambient epics are on the way!

Here’s another fine, 11 minutes-track

LaDonna Adrian Gaines (December 31, 1948 – May 17, 2012), known by her stage name, Donna Summer, was an American singer and songwriter who gained prominence during the disco era of the late 1970s. A five-time Grammy Award winner, Summer was the first artist to have three consecutive double albums reach number one on the United States Billboard album chart and charted four number-one singles in the United States within a 13-month period. Summer has sold over 150 million records worldwide.


In mid-1975, while working on another album, Summer passed on an idea for a song that Moroder was working on for another artist in the then-nascent disco sound, writing part of the song and labeling it as „Love to Love You“. Summer would later say that she had imagined how Marilyn Monroe would sing this song and demonstrated how she felt Monroe would’ve approached it. Prior to recording the song and to get into the mood, she requested Moroder to turn off the lights while they sat on a sofa with him inducing her moans and groans. Moroder liked what he heard after hearing its playback and felt Summer’s song should be released. The song was then sent to Casablanca Records president Neil Bogart in hopes of getting an American release. Bogart informed Summer and Moroder he would release the song (now called „Love to Love You Baby„) but requested that Moroder produce a longer version for discothèques. Moroder, Bellotte and Summer returned with a 17-minute version and Casablanca signed Summer and released the single in November 1975. The shorter version of the single was promoted to radio stations while clubs regularly played the 17-minute version (the longer version would also appear on the album). Casablanca became one of the first record labels to popularize the 12“ single format.

By early 1976, „Love to Love You Baby“ had reached No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 while the parent album of the same name sold over a million copies.


Prince is a general term for a ruler, monarch, or member of a monarch’s or former monarch’s family, and it is a hereditary title in the nobility of some European states. The feminine equivalent is a princess. The English word derives, via the French word prince, from the Latin noun princeps, from primus (first) + capio (to seize), meaning „the chief, most distinguished, ruler, prince“.
