Four Tet – “The Track I’ve Been Playing That People Keep Asking About And That Joy Used In His RA Mix And Daphni Played On Boiler Room”

By Claire Lobenfeld / February 1, 2013

Kieran Hebden, bka Four Tet, has released a song from his upcoming 12″ called *deep breath* “The Track I’ve Been Playing That People Keep Asking About And That Joy Used In His RA Mix And Daphni Played On Boiler Room.” The record is coming out via Hebden’s own label Text under the moniker KH. You can scoop it up here for free, but it’s a .wav file and downloading it is essentially the time-consuming equivalent of giving your song a 24-word title. There’s a lot of buzz going around the Internet about how referencing Resident Advisor mixes and Boiler Room sets means people are consuming dance music via the Internet instead of in clubs. I would argue that the first bit of the title, “The Track I’ve Been Playing That People Keep Asking About” confirms that there is definitely a sweaty, booze-soaked dancefloor element to the way electronic music is received. “The Track I’ve Been Playing That People Keep Asking About And That Joy Used In His RA Mix And Daphni Played On Boiler Room” is out on one-sided 12″ vinyl 2/4 via Hebden’s own label Text.
