Taraval
Aardvark

Here's Taraval, with his summer hit 'Aardvark' on a brand, crisp new 12. One of the most 'track ID?' requested tracks of this summer's festivals and club circuits, Aardvark is a total high-energy banger that has been hammered by the likes of Daphni, Floating Points and Four Tet. Wobble-bass meets metallic clattering mel...view item »

RocketNumberNine and Four Tet
Roseland / Metropolis



Four Tet
Morning / Evening

On 12” vinyl or CD on Text. In perfect indemnible style, Four Tet releases his new album on his own imprint shrouded in mystery and intrigue. Only info in this is via his bareboned tweets, giving us the front cover and the fact that there are only two songs, each around 20 minute mark in length, one entitled Morning Si...view item »

Taraval
Taraval II

Release number two from Taraval, cannily titled Taraval II. The 12” EP is released by Text, the imprint of Kieran Hebden (aka Mr Four Tet). These four tracks have cool, stuttering rhythms and a fresh feel to them: this certainly sounds like a member of the extended Four Te...view item »


Four Tet
New Energy

Yes, Hebden's here. Releasing very soon indeed is his newest Four Tet record and hopefully it'll be slightly more inventive than the laissez-faire samplefest that was Morning / Evening. It's got a nice cover and he's extremely good at making the electronic music he makes, need we say more, no we needn't. ...view item »


Taraval
Streetways EP

Sometimes, its fair to say, we’re fucking useless. This 12" was filed away in the stockroom, no description or review or press release to hand. I’ve gone to Boomkat to find the info. I feel slightly dirty and had better clear my browsing data before Phil sees. Anyway it’s a new signing to Text, the label run by beats king and e...view item »


John Beltran
Faux / Faux (Four Tet Remix)

Kieran Heben, known colloquially as Mr. Tet, serves up another 12" release on his TEXT imprint. This time around, he takes a sparkly underworld tune from John Beltran, "Faux". On the flip, it gets the Four Tet remix treatment, which is a colourful take on the tune's blank surface. Dream on, friends: his remix goes for over seven minutes....view item »


Fridge
The Sun

Fridge are back with a new album. Bet you weren't expecting that.... they've got back together for their brand new studio album called 'The Sun'. The percussive opener is just like Four Tet with it's drums and not much else. The rest of the album follows suit with some more experimental random bits, some semi acoustic bits, some tuneful bits, some ...view item »

Four Tet
SW9 9SL / Planet

Ser Kieran "Hebden" Tet IV is back with another limited 12" on his own Text imprint, this time to a more reasonable 1000 copies. Sorry, discogs ripoff merchants. This time round, he seems to have dedicated one track to the location of the O2 Academy, Brixton, and the other to our humble home. Two of his biggest loves....view item »

Kieran Hebden & Steve Reid
Strings Of Life / Tongues

By the time you read this description the record may well have sold out. This is an eagerly awaited release of the talked about in hushed tones 'Strings Of Life' by the man best known as Four Tet and the late Steve Reid. If that isn't enough for you, you get the warm fuzzy feeling from knowing that all proceeds go to the Steve Reid foundati...view item »

Four Tet (Fourtet)
Jupiters / Ocoras

Here we go with another surefire winner from the man we at Norman call Fourtet. Opening with a squelchy, hi end twinkly keyboard motif it soon gives way to a thumping kick drum explosion which after several bars is joined by a melod...view item »

Joe
Thinkin About

Every single thing about this release is minimal: Joe’s boldly basic moniker, the sleeveless nature of the white label record, even the fact that only one side of the record has any music on it. You would think that all the thought and design has gone into the track itself until you hear it and realise that it is a loop of...view item »

Four Tet (Fourtet)
Beautiful Rewind

The new way to release records seems to be with as little fanfare as possible. Just ‘drop’ it when no-ones looking and let the fans clamour themselves silly. Fourtet is a busy man, and gives the impression of being a confident one although I’m sure he is as drenched in doubt as everyone else. This ...view item »

Anthony Naples
Body Pill

The first full length album from NYC’s darling of the latest scene Anthony Naples and it’s a cracker. Body Pill is released on Four Tet’s Text Records. Laid back deconstructed melodies  with elegant strings and a damn catchy beat - touches of Todd Terje’s love of synthetic sounds that add a certain f...view item »


Four Tet (Fourtet)
Kool FM/Kool FM (Bliss Mix)

Four Tet is continuously honing his style like some kind of aural sponge. Along with Dan Snaith (of Caribou fame) as Daphni, these two are breaking new ground in terms of genre but also in terms of their respective labels - Snaith's ...view item »


Four Tet (Fourtet)
Pink

Pink was first issued a few years ago as a digital-only compilation of vinyl-only 12” tracks that Four Tet had slipped out under the radar. Now they are back on vinyl again, but this time as a single, coherent collection. It’s all about the high quality shuffle here, Kieran working his magic...view item »

Beautiful Rewind Remixes

Four Tet's 'Beautiful Rewind' was super referential, calling back the dance music it was inspired by and paying homage to the UK's pirate radio scene. These three remixes of his most dance/garage influenced work ever continue his propulsive intent, with a hypnotic beat from Jay Daniel to compl...view item »

Champion + Four Tet
Flip Side / Disparate

Percussions
KHLHI / Sext

Just to be clear, I'm not even going to review the flip side of this 12. I've listened to it once and it was fine, it may even be great, however I can't get beyond the A side, KHLHI is incredible. This is Four Tet at his dancefloor crushing best. I've loved his shift into releasing bombs via the Text label and they...view item »

Just imagine the hoards of laptop scraps in Kieran Hebden’s possession. 20+ years of chopped breaks, obscure jazz grooves and Spiegel synths chilling in silicon somewhere in London. You can also imagine my reaction when I found out that the ‘Tet suddenly released a col...view item »

Percussions
Ascii Bot / Blatant Water Cannon

For those summer days, where you need chill music, good vibes and to cool down, Blatant Water Cannon is what you need. A-side Ascii Bot is swell, of course, with Percussions’ namesake being only part of the story - of course the bass drum carries everything, but the ecstatic fluttering melodies and twirli...view item »

Four Tet & Terror Danjah
Killer/ Nasty

I've been aware of Four Tet for some time mainly through his collaborations with Steve Reid but it's only in the last year I've begun to understand how much of a genuine innovator and leader in his field he is. If you're looking for diversity, look no further. If you enjoy unexpect...view item »

Ooh, Fourtet’s only gone and done another 12” hasn’t he? Actually this one has a couple of remixes of his recent ‘Kool FM’ from the insta-sellout ‘Beautiful Rewind’ LP. On the first side is the Champion Remix which has a bass wobble which reminds me of that Flat Eric song th...view item »

Well this is going to sell anyway so it doesn't matter what I say here. Ok then............sausages, roundabout, teeth, whip. Seriously though, the Fourtet side follows on from the 4/4 exploits of his last opus 'There is Love in You' built around a lovely one note piano motif, watery synths and bubbly acid bass it shuffles along nicely occasiona...view item »

KH
The Track I've Been Playing That People Keep Asking About And That Joy Used In His RA Mix And Daphni Played On Boiler Room

Well this track and the subsequent blogosphere queries as regards to what it actually is have apparently been driving Hebden mad, so mad he’s put all the info he can muster into the title. The mad fucker. This review is deliberately short as there’s not much to this track apart from a ru...view item »

Burial and Fourtet
Nova

Another un-announced Burial and Four Tet collaboration drops on Text. This one is a limited single sider. Apparently the pair had planned on making a couple of tunes but Kieran fell asleep in the studio after being up for three days watching his box set collection of the entire series of "Minder". So with only one tune to review I thought I'd do...view item »

Lotus Flower

Sometimes you wonder what all the fuss is about Kieran Hebden. Ok I've wondered this for years and years and years and years. That said I did enjoy that collaboration with Burial earlier this year. He also has a record label called Text and releases the odd thing here and there. The latest release is a 12" of remixes of his latest prodigee One...view item »

Burial/ Four Tet/ Thom Yorke
Ego / Mirror

The internet almost broke yesterday when this release was announced out of the blue and dropped exclusively on Rinse FM. For many I'm sure this is somewhat of a dream collaboration. Lest we forget though that both Burial and Fourtet previously collaborated on a 12" for Text and each in turn have also remixed Thom Yorke so it was almost bound to ...view item »

One little Plane
Until

Really taken with the One Little Plane CD on Text. I think her vocals have that magical quality inherent in early Cat Power & Mirah records, a breathy, lustrous quality over some spiritual krautrock/Velvets minimal backing. The songs unfurl slowly with all sorts of slightly shambling chimes, twinkles & strums and rattly percussion keep...view item »
