Four Tet

Kieran Hebden, the man behind Four Tet started out musically in the rock band Fridge. But when he moved on to his solo project, his stylings changed to something truly unique. To me his music is an organic take on the electronic genre. Four Tet’s tracks are completely instrumental but unlike most electronically manipulated music, have a heavy emphasis on live instrumentation.

Four full length albums were made between 1999 and 2005; Dialogue, Pause, Rounds and Everything Ecstatic as well as a Remixes album and a fairly recent EP, Ringer.

I’ve put in two mp3’s below as well as an amazing youtube video by Cheekychen. It’s a time lapse of him painting using another of Four Tet’s tracks ‘My Angel Rocks Back and Forth’ as the backing.

Picture 1The Eraser Remixes is a 9 track album of remixes from the 2006 album, ‘The Eraser’ by Thom Yorke of Radiohead. It features a remix of all the tracks apart from the title track and two remixes of Black Swan.

A lot of dubstep traits can be heard in this album and this goes well with Thom Yorke’s already distinct musical and vocal style.

The album can be downloaded through torrent from The Pirate Bay at 320kbps. I’m putting this here because his solo stuff always seems to be very overpriced.

At the bottom are three tracks from the album and here’s the video for the Atoms for Peace (Four Tet Remix)
