Four Tet-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

That title is pretty much a review/description in itself. He’s releasing this as a vinyl single tomorrow (under the name KH, assumedly a reference to his actual name), and lets loose a free download beforehand for those not looking to grab that 12″.

It’s certainly an eclectic mix of sounds, opening rather cautiously with repetitive, wafer-thin percussion and not a great deal else, before throwing in some distorted tribal call and response vocals, and finally a more solid drum line that pads things out nicely. As the vocals become rather disorienting and increasingly freeform, they’re stripped away and all that’s left is the percussion layer, before those chants make their way back to pretty much close the track out. Honestly, I’m not as keen on this as I have been many of his previous works, but those who like something between minimal and experimental will definitely enjoy it.
