Essential Listening: Four Tet

Essential Listening: Four Tet

Mollie Denton | Features & Interviews

Regarded as perhaps the most definitive electronic artist of recent years, DJ and producer Four Tet, or known as Kieran Hebden, whose experimental recordings that blend both original and electronic sounds have gained widespread praise from across the board of electronic music as well as indie rock fans. With the unforgettable and outstanding shows that occurred at Alexander Palace in London earlier this year, featuring an impressive, magical light show paired with his dreamy ambient sounds, went down in history, receiving serious praise from critics and  regarded as a specific high point within his career.

Four Tet - Two Thousand and Seventeen

From Four Tet’s ninth studio album New Energy, the second track Two Thousand and Seventeen is a definite fan favourite as well as being an iconic track by the electronic music producer. The sounds within the track feature a close recall of a previous track by Hebden named Unspoken, as well as the delicate strumming of guitar strings that conclude the track into being a blissful summer hit. 

Four Tet - She Just Likes to Fight

Taking it back almost a decade to the fifth studio album by Four Tet, There Is Love In You, the closing track She Just Likes To Fight is an instant classic by Hebden. The glorious yet gracious sounds coming from the track are all the more reason why he is one of the most respected and praised electronic music producers to this date. Although the guitar melody is pretty straightforward, the melody surrounding it contributes to creating a strong feeling this song makes us endure. 

Four Tet - Dreamer

Four Tet’s most recent release, Dreamer, being his third release of this year, has been revealed with excellent timing as it is most definitely on its way to becoming the summer track of the year. With the bumpy and upbeat backing to the track, with small additions of birds singing throughout, Dreamer would be the perfect go whether it be during a sunset set, on the nightclub dancefloor. The light and ambient sounds are a simple showcasing of Hebden’s true talent. 

Four Tet - Teenage Birdsong 

Released earlier this year, Teenage Birdsong was a contribution to a Spotify playlist that is dedicated to alternative electronic music, and has already accumulated more than 2 million streams on the platform. The emotional single features Four Tet’s classic sound, with the chimes and melodic features that make up the track. The release was followed by a music video, which was Hebden’s first music video in fourteen years. 

Bicep - Opal (Four Tet Remix)

One of Four Tet’s most renowned tracks, his remix of Bicep’s Opal, is up there as a high profile remix. The springy groove to the track has contributed to its success, as well as becoming another fan favourite. Bicep were the creators of the delicate track, but Four Tet may be congratulated for creating a special remix.
