In celebration of reaching one million followers on Soundcloud, English post-rock/electronic musician Kieren Hebden, AKA Four Tet, has released a new song for download. It’s almost been a year since the release of his latest album Morning/Evening, which we kinda loved. The track comes in at just above the five-minute mark, but there’s more length in the title than anything else.
It is called, TrackI’veBeenPlayingOnRadio+StuffSeemsNiceThing2DropBecauseSmashingItOnInternetShouts2B.UFO+A.Naples.
Believe it or not that is an abbreviated version of the full title, which reveals itself once downloaded: A lost track that I’ve been playing on the radio and stuff. Seemed like a nice thing to put out there because of smashing it on the internet etc. Shout out to Ben UFO and Anthony Naples. May 2016
The track itself is really good, with a great use of Asian strings opening the piece. Chopped vocals add to the hearty mix, creating a steady build up toward a funky beat. It has a steady rhythm for anyone to dance to, while the playful production makes it a really fun listen. While not quite as ambitious as his remix of Eric Prydz, released last year and still one of the best Four Tet tracks ever released, it’s a really great effort from the English producer.
You can check out the new track below or on Soundcloud, and there’s also a free download available.
