Burial & Four Tet – Unreleased (Preview) Kieran Hebdan aka Four Tet has just released his latest LP 'Beautiful Rewind', which can be streamed in its entirety (here), and for those of us who have tracked Four Tet's output for sometime, will be aware that this another in a progressively long line of collaborations with the Banksy of the electronic world, Burial. For us the unveiling of this track raises a couple of interesting observations. Firstly in the build up to the new LP Four Tet made quite a forceful statement in regards to his marketing strategy "no pre order, no youtube trailers, no itunes stream, no spotify, no amazon deal, ...

Four Tet – Beautiful Rewind (Stream) Out Now Four Tet has put the final touches to his forthcoming LP 'Beautiful Rewind' and you can now stream it in its entirety prior to its release, which allegedly was October 15th, however various sources yesterday and today suggest that it is available today, a full two weeks before the originally proposed date. If like us you have the patience of a small child in a sweet shop, get yourself over to Soundcloud for a quick preview and then Phonica to grab your copy.... It sounds vast and very satisfying. Highly recommended. Tracklist: 01 “Gong” 02 ”Parallel Jalebi” 03 ”Our ... Read more / Preview track

FREE DOWNLOAD – Four Tet + Ejeca Two contrasting free downloads, but free none the less. Four Tet for the more pastel coloured among you and Ejeca for those who are a little more glittery. Four Tet's 'Unspoken' is a haunting piano track that is taken from his seminal 2003 LP 'Rounds'. Rounds has just been reissued (Buy Here) to mark its 10th anniversary, and if you are new to Four Tets earlier more electronica based work, 'Unspoken' is the perfect introduction. Ejeca on the other hand is not trying to conjure up images of the past, he has simply gone, club, disco, house, done. So Good To Me (Ejeca Remix) is grooving vocal ... Read more / Preview track

Atoms For Peace aka Thom Yorke remixes Four Tets – Pyramid Radiohead's front man has collaborated with Four Tet previously, most notably on 2011's Ego / Mirror 12 inch, which also featured the irrepressible stepper Burial.

You can catch Atoms For Peace headlining this years EXIT Festival - July 10-14th, and we can't think of a more glorious setting for their other worldly rhythms. ... Read more / Preview track

Justin Timberlake – Suit and Tie (Four Tet remix) Certainly did not expect this, Four Tet remixing former N Sync front man Justin Timberlake. To be brutally honest I clicked play on this with considerable trepidation. This is not to say we are being musically snobbish, but for us Timberlake is an enjoyable guilty pleasure at a family wedding, whilst Four Tet is the kind of artist not even your parents would get down to, regardless of what's being served. As remixes go it works quite well, but Im not entirely sure what the marketing ploy is behind linking a huge pop icon with a highly respected underground electronic producer, certainly cant ...
