FACT Classic Mix: Four Tet

Looking back at Four Tet‘s unbeatable 2010 blend of sizzling electronics and bass experiments.

FACT has been running our weekly mix series since April 2008, so with hundreds of brilliant sessions gathering dust in the vaults, we decided to dig through the archives and pull out some of our very favorites.

Next up for re-evaluation is this corker of a selection from Kieran Hebden, better known as Four Tet. Recorded back in 2010 when the UK was still a part of Europe and hope wasn’t an alien concept, the mix finds Hebden at a crucial stage in his career. His excellent Fabric mix CD came only a year later, and this subtle blend of twinkly jazz, womping garage and the post-dubstep shuffle of Floating Points, Ramadanman and Cosmin TRG neatly charts the direction of his next few years of experimentation.

As at home splicing together the percussive fury of Bob Holroyd’s ‘African Drug’ and beloved Indian vocalist Lata Mangeshkar’s gorgeous ‘Too Mere Saath Rahega Munne’ as he is beatmatching Mount Kimbie’s ‘Blind Night Errand’ and Grievous Angel’s ‘Move Down Low VIP’, Four Tet is at the height of his creativity here, offering a grip of tracks that shouldn’t be forgotten in a hurry.
