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.

Neneh Cherry – “Blank Project” (Prod. Four Tet)

The great Neneh Cherry's 1989 debut album Raw Like Sushi broke new ground in cosmopolitan rap snarl and helped make M.I.A. possible.

Neneh Cherry Preps New Solo LP Produced By Four Tet, Featuring Robyn

If you had your pop music awakening sometime in the late-'80s, the Swedish-born, London-based, New York-inspired sing-rapper Neneh Cherry may well have seemend like the coolest person in the universe, and this impression was not far off the truth.

Over the weekend, Hebden DJed a ridiculous eight-hour set for Britain's Rinse FM, and… More »

Four Tet – “Parallel Jalebi”

This is going to be a busy fall for the adventurous dance producer Four Tet, who produced all of Syrian singer Omar Souleyman's forthcoming album Wenu Wenu and who has his own album, called Beautiful Rewind, getting ready to drop.

Omar Souleyman – “Wenu Wenu” (Prod. Four Tet)

Four Tet has his own new album Beautiful Rewind coming out soon, but he also produced all of Wenu Wenu, the new album from the Syrian singer Omar Souleyman. One thing that strikes me about that album's title track, which you can hear below, is that Four Tet's stamp is barely anywhere on it. More »

Four Tet Beautiful Rewind Details

Last year, the great kinda-dance producer Kieran Hebden, who records as Four Tet, released the sorely underrated singles collection Pink, which showed how close to straight-up dance music his productions could get without losing their exploratory spirit. But Hebden hasn't released a full-on album of new material since 2010's There Is Love In You. That… More »
