Hear The Original, Tori Amos-Sampling Version Of Four Tet’s “Unspoken”

Rounds, the third album from the bucolic British producer Four Tet, was his big breakout moment, the album where his fusion of pastoral folk and head-blown inward-looking electronic music found its fullest realization. And it sounds like one person's complete vision. But with the album's 10th-anniversary reissue looming, Four Tet recently revealed that it's not… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: April 2013

After experimenting with three formats for the Monthly Mix -- MP3 zip, Spotify playlist, Soundcloud set, etc. -- in March we finally came upon a solution that pleased everyone: all of them. And so, for you, here is the month's music, whittled down to its very best, via each of the aforementioned mediums, limited… More »

Four Tet – “Pyramid (Atoms For Peace Remix)”

Last year, the cerebral electronic producer Four Tet released Pink, an excellent collection of the singles he'd been releasing, tracks that were more dancefloor-directed than almost anything he'd done before. Now, Thom Yorke's Atoms For Peace project has remixed "Pyramid," one of the highlights of Pink, turning it into nearly eight minutes of chilly, rippling… More »

Neneh Cherry & Afrika Baby Bam – “Nina” (Prod. By Four Tet)

About 14 years ago, on opposite sides of the Atlantic, both Neneh Cherry and the Jungle Broters were doing way-out art-student things with rap music. And now Cherry and Afrika Baby Bam, one half of the Jungle Brothers, have fused their two aesthetics together, making a drifting, starry-eyed spoken-word duet called "Nina," one that could've… More »

Justin Timberlake – “Suit & Tie (Four Tet Remix)”

Justin Timberlake is getting a lot of play from gossip blogs this morning, largely because everyone just now realized that he threw a sneaky sideways dis to Kanye West into his SNL performance of "Suit & Tie" this past weekend. If Timberlake had really wanted to blow minds, though, he might have bee… More »

RocketNumberNine & Four Tet – “Roseland”

In July, Four Tet went into the studio with Ben and Tom Page, a/k/a the London-based improv-inclined brothers duo RocketNumberNine. Together, the trio recorded a new collaborative 12-inch, due out via Four Tet's own TEXT label "in a week or so." Below, hear the A-side, "Roseland," a slow-grooving track that expands over eight… More »

Download Four Tet Rarities Comp 0181

One of last year's great under-the-radar albums was Four Tet's Pink, the singles compilation that moved Kieran Hebden's production further away from warm electro-acoustic romanticism and toward intricately constructed skeletal dance music. And now, Hebden's gone way back to the other side of the spectrum, posting 0181, a compilation of some of his very earliest… More »

Grimes – “Skin (Four Tet Remix)”

On Tuesday, Four Tet guest-hosted DJ Roska's show on the UK's legendary pirate-turned-Internet radio station Rinse FM. During the set, Four Tet played a track he made featuring a vocal loop from Grimes's "Skin" over a twinkly, soft bass. While it sounds in line with his style, it was just an experiment and not… More »

2012 In Review: The Year In Instrumental Music

In 1959, Ornette Coleman released The Shape of Jazz To Come, a record with content almost as audacious as its title. Forty-seven years later, Coleman at least partially fulfilled his own challenge with the fearless and fertile Sound Grammar. But even that 2006 effort might not have crossed jazz boundaries as much as one from… More »

Four Tet – “Lion (Jamie xx Remix)”

Earlier this year, the great British electronic producer Four Tet released Pink, an excellent and somewhat underrated collection of dance singles. In the past, Four Tet has remixed the xx's "VCR" and "Angels," and now the xx's production mastermind Jamie xx returns the favor, reworking the Pink track "Lion." Jamie xx's versio… More »

The xx – “Angels” (Four Tet Remix)

Once upon a time, the reliably awesome British producer remixed the xx's first-album single "VCR." And now that the xx have finally gotten around to releasing their (pretty great, in my opinion) sophomore album Coexist, they've once again invited Four Tet to rework a single of theirs. Four Tet's twinkling take on "More »

Ultraísta – “Smalltalk (Four Tet Remix)”

Here's a twittering remix of Ultraísta's album track "Smaltalk," in which Four Tet injects their delicate rumble into the proceedings. Ultraísta, of course, features Nigel Godrich, who is in a lot of bands. Hear Four Tet's remix below. More »

Four Tet – “Lion” & “Peace For Earth”

Today, the great electronic music space-traveler Four Tet digitally releases Pink, his new album, which collects the excellent 12" singles he's been releasing lately on his Text label. The album only has two new tracks, but they're both doozies. The nine-minute "Lion" and the 11-minute "Peace For Earth" are both beautifully assured and understated… More »

Hot Chip – “Look At Where We Are (Four Tet Remix)”

A couple of weeks ago, we posted Major Lazer's fiery EDM-reggae remix of Hot Chip's lovely synthpop lament "Look At Where We Are." Now Four Tet has remixed it too, taking the song in the exact opposite direction and turning it into a spare and haunted eight-minute love-koan that gets busier as it… More »

Neneh Cherry & The Thing – “Dream Baby Dream (Four Tet Remix)” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

In April, Neneh Cherry, a late-'80s avatar of cool whose old records have held up remarkably well, released "Dream Baby Dream," a gorgeous cover of the Suicide classic that she recorded with the Scandinavian jazz combo the Thing. It's the first track we heard from The Cherry Thing, their collaborative covers album, which… More »

Four Tet – “128 Harps”

Last month, Four Tet released his single "Jupiters" b/w "Ocoras." And since Kieran Hebden seems to work exclusively in the medium of single these days, he's already got a follow-up ready to go: "128 Harps," which hit the web today. It's a fast-moving but gorgeous example of his soulful, organic take on IDM, and… More »

Four Tet Remixes Neneh Cherry

On the new covers album The Cherry Thing, late-'80s embodiment of cool Neneh Cherry teams up with Scandinavian jazz crew the Thing. (Cherry herself is actually jazz royalty; she's Don's daughter. She's also Eagle Eye's sister, but let's not hold that against her.) Fellow traveler Four Tet has remixed their great spun-out cover of Suicide'… More »
