Sure you may have heard of DEADMAU5
but BURNS can hold his own
and MCB's RebeccaMich and Amy Palomar
will be talking to the man behind the wheels
at the show to get the scoop
Now a regular fixture on the Hype Machine chart, BURNS has been called up for remix duties by Kasabian, Empire of the Sun, Late of The Pier, Passion Pit, Filthy Dukes, Yuksek,Melanie Fiona, Gossip and Calvin Harris
(who even named a song after Burns on his forthcoming #1 UK album).

When asked in a recent interview for Paper Magazine
who is "Burns Night?", Calvin Harris replied
"Burns is a DJ.
He’s touring the US with Deadmau5.
"Burns is better than
both of us put together. "
The song is basically just a dedication to him, the chaos that he brings.
If you ever meet him, you’ll know what I mean"

BURNS 3 (Teknique EP) is the third instalment in his 4 EP series.

The previous release featured ‘Turbo’ and ‘Heartbeats’, (plus a Jokers Of The Scene remix of ‘Turbo’). Born on Halloween 1985, he’s the son of a painter mother and a professional heavyweight boxer father. Burns enjoyed a childhood spent combining amateur boxing with learning to play the piano and guitar, discovering the delights of sampling software in his spare time.
While BURNS has gained notoriety for the kind of sonic bursts associated with European stalwarts such as Justice and Boyz Noise (but stamped with the kind of rave (un)sensibility that could only come from a British upbringing), there’s far more in his kitbag than all out aural assaults, hence his support from a wide range of DJs including Erol Alkan, A-Trak, DJ Mehdi, Dubfire, Don Diablo, and beyond. His ear for melody shows he can match the likes of Falke and Lindstrom note for blissful note.
The ‘Teknique EP’ once again points to BURNS’ ability to pursue his own musical agenda through a variety of styles. ‘Teknique’ is an epic dancefloor banger, with a seismic piano riff;‘First Move’ is a quirky, off kilter stride through filtered loops and effects, while ‘In My Eyes’ is the latest missive from his disco arsenal, drawing comparisons with A-Trak and Armand’s Duck Sauce Project. Remixes come courtesy of Fred Falke and His Majesty Andre.
