Four Tet has been a busy man this week. Last night he DJ’ed for eight hours in a row on Rinse FM, this man doesn’t sleep. With the hope that someone was recording this for youtube Four Tet dropped the signature tune of the night, an unreleased collaboration with the mysterious but always brilliant Burial.
They have worked together a number of times before with their last release ‘Nova’ in March this year. Their sounds go so well together it has caused speculation that Keiran Hebden may also be Burial. While this is probably bullshit I am just glad they are friends. Four Tet’s style lightens Burial’s slightly making the songs dancier and not as dark. With an ace beat and signature Burial vocal samples from Mariah Carey’s ‘My All’ have a listen above.
‘Then my heart just won’t let me be right.’
