All of the ridiculous speculation about the man (or woman) behind Burial‘s pitch-dark dubstep beats has finally ended in an innocuous MySpace posting. All of the producer’s ID details–and hints about some new music!–are after the jump and, no, Norman Cook, a.k.a. Fatboy Slim, has nothing to do with it.
Let’s hope the Mercury Prize comes next.
