Four Tet & Jamie xx – “Seesaw”
Last night, a mob of artists associated with London’s beyond-cool Young Turks label, and their various friends and contemporaries, took over the Sydney radio statio FBi 94.5, all of them playing new music. That means we suddenly have a ton of new tracks to pick through. Earl Sweatshirt and Domo Genesis played a short DJ set. Sampha played an unreleased version of his song “Demons.” Four Tet brought a new Ellie Goulding remix, as well as collaborations with grime producer Terror Danjah and the John Talobot/Axel Boman duo Talaboman. And there was more. But the most newsworthy track on the whole show might be “Seesaw,” a soft, glinting, rhythmically jerky collaboration between Four Tet and Jamie xx. Listen to a radio rip of that, or, if you prefer, the whole three-hour show below.
Here’s the entire episode:
You can also listen to the show at the station’s site, but it’s slammed with traffic right now.
