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 Years Of The Darkness, a compilation that pays tribute to the late percussionist and Four Tet collaborator Steve Reid. And along with Four Tet, he’s recorded a tingly and insistent interpretation of “Makondi,” a 1982 piece from the jazz greats Don Cherry and Ed Blackwell. Listen to their collaboration below.
