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.
