Kieran Hebden (Four Tet) & Steve Reid – “Strings Of Life” (Derrick May Cover)

Before the legendary New York jazz drummer Steve Reid passed away in 2010, Kieran Hebden (bka Four Tet) collaborated with him on a variety of projects. They released three albums — Tongues (2007), NYC (2008), and the posthumous Live At The South Bank (2011) — and at one point covered the Detroit-based producer Derrick May’… More »

Rome Fortune – “Leaders” (Prod. Four Tet)

As far as I know, Rome Fortune is the only guy on Atlanta’s rap underground who’s recorded multiple tracks with Four Tet. Last year, Rome Fortune and Four Tet teamed up for “One Time For” and “Lights Low.” And now that Rome has a new iOS/Android app coming out, he’s celebrating by releasing a third… More »

Omar Souleyman – “Bahdeni Nami” (Prod. Four Tet) Video

Omar Souleyman has collaborated with a number of major producers, but his biggest success came in the form of 2013’s Wenu Wenu, which the Syrian musician co-produced with Four Tet. The last we heard from Souleyman was back in March, when he dropped the Modeselektor-produced single “Enssa El Ataab,” but today he’s back with a… More »

New Four Tet Album Morning/Evening Out This Summer

Four Tet announced some details about his next album via Twitter earlier today: It’ll be called Morning/Evening and will be out by early July. There’s apparently only two tracks on the whole thing — one is “Morning Side” (clocking in at 20:24 length) and the other is “Evening Side” (19:53). It’s his first full-length since… More »

Roots Manuva – “Facety 2:11″ (Prod. Four Tet)

Back in the days before grime, Roots Manuva seemed like the great hope for UK rap. His heavy, craggy voice could’ve only come from a man who has seen some things, and his 2001 album Run Come Save Me seemed like a logical rap response to Massive Attack’s Mezzanine. He’s just returned with a new… More »

Four Tet & Eminative – “Makondi” (Don Cherry & Ed Blackwell Cover)

Yesterday, the way-out electronic-music great Kieran Hebden, better known as Four Tet, released a whole surprise album of music he’d recorded under his Percussions alias. He does not appear to be slowing down. Today, he’s got a new song. Nick Woodmansey, the British jazz drummer who records as Emanative, has but together The Light YearsMore »

Stream Percussions (Four Tet) 2011 Until 2014

It’s not like Kieran Hebden doesn’t release a fuckton of music under his Four Tet name. Both on his own and as a producer for other artists, Hebden is one of those electronic artists who can maintain a ridiculous output while still keeping up a certain standard of excellence. And he’s got so much music… More »

Stream Caribou Vibration Ensemble CVE Live 2011

Caribou are a hell of a live band in any situation, but if you ever get a chance to see Dan Snaith in his Caribou Vibration Ensemble configuration, you should take that chance. A few times over the past few years, Snaith has put together big all-star live bands to do some serious psychedelic channeling-the-star… More »

Stream Four Tet & Floating Points’ 6-Hour Final Set At London Club Plastic People

After some 20 years in business, the small but much-loved London club Plastic People shut down over the weekend. On its final night, though, it got a proper sendoff. Four Tet and Floating Points, two adventurous British dance producers who have DJed at the venue many times over the years, got together to spin a… More »

Rome Fortune – “One Time For” Video

Bluebearded Atlanta rap iconoclast has only been on the scene for a couple of years, but he’s already the godfather of a whole generation of his city’s stoned club-rap weirdos. He’s also the only person on his scene who’s made music with Four Tet, who produced his track “One Time For,” as well as another… More »

Rome Fortune – “Lights Low” (Prod. Four Tet)

Back in May, we bore witness to an unexpected convergence of the laconic, idiosyncratic Atlanta rapper Rome Fortune and the extremely busy head-expanding British producer Four Tet, who doesn’t exactly crank out a lot of rap beats. That song was called “One Time For,” and it was really good. The same pair has teamed u… More »

Sia – “Chandelier (Four Tet Remix)”

Four Tet is a leftfield electronic-music institution, but he’s somehow never met a gigantic, sweeping pop hit that he didn’t feel like remixing. In the past couple of months, he’s reworked pieces of pop-radio bait from Ellie Goulding and Lana Del Rey, and now he’s given the same treatment to “Chandelier,” the latest single from… More »

Rome Fortune – “One Time For” (Prod. Four Tet)

When Rome Fortune dropped the second installment of his Beautiful Pimp mixtape series earlier this year, he demonstrated that he’s at his best rapping over cloudy, spaced beats. On the new “One Time For,” the Atlanta rapper got Four Tet to produce, and the two go together just right. It’s the sort of track that… More »

Lana Del Rey – “West Coast (Four Tet Remix)”

Four Tet has contributed a remix of Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast” to go along with the Camo & Krooked take we heard yesterday. Whereas that one played up the creeping ominous feeling that underlies all of Del Rey’s music, Four Tet’s take turns “West Coast” into spare, uptempo dance music. It’s probably not going… More »

Martyn + Four Tet – “Glassbeadgames (8 Hours At Fabric Dub)”

Four Tet’s collaborative streak continues. In recent months, he’s produced Neneh Cherry’s comeback album Blank Project and released collaborative singles with Terror Danjah and Jamie xx. Now, he and the Dutch producer Martyn have teamed up for a new track called “Glassbeadgames.” One version of that track will appear on Martyn’s new album The AirMore »

Percussions – “KHLHI”

Four Tet’s been releasing songs under his Percussions alias over the past few days in a lead-up to the release of two 12-inches on his own label. We’ve already heard “Blatant Water Cannon,” “Ascii Bot,” and “Sext” and “KHLHI” completes the series. It’s very much of the same family as the other tracks, elevated by… More »
