The New York producer has two mini-LPs on the way under his new alias.
The first, The Last Tortuga, will see release on London label Emotional Response on October 7th. This will be followed by a six-track record for Peak Oil called S/T, due out November 12th. Burnett's Black Deer alias was first spotted earlier this year on Rush Hour's No 'Label' series: according to the producer it's a moniker that allows him to make music that is patriotic to his US homeland.
The two records will arrive amid a busy run of releases for the W.T. Records founder. He's teamed up with Torn Hawk on a couple of 12-inches—one white label for L.I.E.S and an EP (that also features Secret Circuit) for Rush Hour under the name Circuit, Burns & Hawk. He also has a cassette release for Sex Lies Magnetic Tape in the works, as well as a second Willie Burns EP for Will Bankhead's Trilogy Tapes label, though release dates are still TBA.

Emotional Response will release The Last Tortuga on October 7th, 2013. S/T will come out via Peak Oil on November 12th.
