Four Tet

March 22, 2010

I realized there has never been a post about Four Tet (Kieran Hebdan) on letanque and figured it’s about time.  He has had a huge influence on me and I am sure on countless other musicians and producers.  I think I have had a crush on his music for almost a decade.  He started as the remix king (sia, madvillain, 2-disc remix album) and then continued on with some really solid solo albums (dialogue, pause, my angel rocks back and forth, everything ecstatic) to name a few.  He sort of disappeared off my radar until his dj-kicks album came out.  It was amazing when it came out but I didn’t quite understand it.  Now, 30 listens and 4 years later I can finally give a wag of my finger and say that he taught me a lesson and I didn’t know it. Now everyone wants to remix him. FFWD today and I can’t get enough of some recent singles/collaborations (burial – moth/wolfcub),   (love cry – remixed by roska, joy orbison), (sing – floating points remix).  Not to mention his newest album – The Is Love In You. I think the number one compliment as a dj or producer would be to work with FOUR TET.

I realize as I search around that I am totally late on this post as he appeared on BBC Radio one not too long ago.  that’s ok,  he deserves more credit.

Some favorites that everyone should have:

As Serious as Your Life [Jay Dee Remix]

And Then Patterns

Rhinestone Cowboy

this album really doesnt offer anything new. it is mostly a reminder and a pause. of why we have loved music for the past decade. soak it.

what a weekend.

Diplo could probably solve all the world’s problems if all the leaders in the world just got on his dance floor.

but rest up my friends Joker is coming to town April 7th and I am pumped!

So sit back, relax and enjoy this dubstep documentary.

we need to start recording our conversations, seriously.
