- Jupiters (Happa Remix) / Lion (Jamie XX Remix) by Four Tet (Fourtet)
8/10 Mike Staff review, 30 November 2012
Our lad Keiran ‘FourTet’ Hebden seems to have it all figured out; a lucrative residency slot to keep the moolah rolling in while he casually works on new stuff and releases 12”s seemingly as and when he feels like it, with the minimum of fanfare - even we only tend to find out about them a week or so before they arrive and we like to think we’re reasonably clued in.
Anyway, this latest twelve sees his buddies Jamie xx and Happa rework two numbers from recent singles. xx is tackling ‘Lion’, stripping it back to a minimal techno head-nodder with subtle microbeats and sparse but prominent melodic synth touches. It’s a barely-there late night chillout number here, best listened to loud in the dark. There’s a housey bass drum pulse that gets introduced near the end which really effectively kicks it into a more danceable gear without losing the lazy, spare feel.On the other side Happa is tackling ‘Jupiters’, and once again things seem to be taken in more of a dark techno direction, although this is much more murky and pumping than the other side’s offering, with slight industrial touches building to a kinetic techno-house groove with the occasional cleverly-judged stop and some weird filtered vocal loops and watery synth-drone touches providing some melodic interest. Cool.
