Recommended Event - Four Tet @ Apolo Barcelona 23/01/10

The Four Tet project by producer Kieren Hebden has been a continuous exploration into the balance between organic and programmed sounds, ranging from the more experimental beat and structure patterns of his earlier albums, with the last released album 'Everything Ecstatic' in the same vein, to the more four-to-the-floor orientated outings of his more recent work. 

Below are two tracks I'm really loving, the first one being one of the most beautiful House tracks I have heard in a long time, which was made along side the famously mysterious Burial and the second track is one of his latest tracks released on the 'Domino' label called 'Love Cry'. This track really highlights Four Tet's recent transition into more dance-floor based sounds whilst still retaining the live sample, organic feel which his work is so famous for.  On the flip side there's a very cool remix by Joy Orbison which is worth some attention.

Anyway I'll be popping along to this night so a review will be following shortly, but for now enjoy these and if your not familiar with his work then have a good old dig......

  1. Man these tunes are making me moist!

    That night is well worth a rockin up to, Four Tet can paint the club any colour he likes with that beautiful rainbow spectrum he has in his record palet. ;)
