Jay Daniel, Seven davis Jr and Ph0t0machine put a new spin on Four Tet's 'Beautiful Rewind' album tracks. Detroit's yung wunderkind, Jay Daniel rides roughshod drum machine rhythms, dissolving keys and field recordings of birdsong over a sublime rework of 'Aerial'; Seven Davis Jr nimbly tweaks Buchla' into a skipping, floating garage-house groove, and Ph0t0machine gives 'Crush' a mercurial electro-techno momentum.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: TEXT030

Second of two surprise 12"s from Kieran Hebden (Four Tet) under his Percussions guise. A-side cycles a mesmerising cosmic house groove frothing layers of E2-E4-like arpeggios and gently escalating pads in a fluid, supple house motion primed for twilight and dawning beach sessions. B-side 'Blatant Water Cannon' is less direct, more experimental, shredding up strobing samples like some Co La joint before turning on the bass-heavy garage bump for eyelid-fluttering, lip-smacking dancefloor moments.

Say hello to Taraval, the new signing on Kieran Hebden's Text label, with their debut EP of mutant, misshapen house and techno trax. There's four cannily skewed but heavily functional groovers, sustaining a smart dancefloor intensity from the pacy Detroit techno momentum of 'Gar's Highway' thru the blown-out, Trilogy Tapes-style warped house of 'Gonna Rain' to a killer acid jacker strongly reminding of Oliverwho Factory's heady aces in 'Streetways', and stripped down Wax/EQ'd styles on 'Doug's Prayer'.

Cat. Number: TEXT021

Recorded around the time of his first couple of solo records ‘Dialogue’ and ‘Pause’, ‘0181’ slots snugly into that post-rock meets electronica sound, with crunchy breaks underpinning disembodied drones and haunted glockenspiel echoes. This was back when Fridge (the innovative post rock troupe Hebden cut his teeth playing with) was more than a distant memory, and the skeletal forms they perfected are still present on the wallpaper. It’s no bad thing either, and with the negative connotations of the genre all but gone re-evaluation of this material seems more than due, and there’s a surprising freshn… Read more

Yung talent Happa and Jamie xx weigh in with sweetly contrasting Four Tet remixes. Leeds-based, 15 year old producer Happa lives up to the hype surrounding his name, turning 'Jupiter' into a hulking slab of techno rollige nodding to Blawan, Joy or Boddika; its throbbing bass and swerving polyrhythms delivering a distinctly UK take on the industrial dancefloor zeitgeist. With 'Lion' on the flip, Jamie xx gives a twinkle-toed reduction of R&B, garage and pop-neat hooks to the session. Can't wait to see where this Happa lad goes.

*New album collecting the hitherto vinyl-only singles that Kieran Hebden has released on his Text label in the last couple of years* This period of activity from the London-based producer has marked a decisive move away from the woozy electronica with which he made his name, towards more direct assaults on the dancefloor, or at least so it seems - of course it's not actually that simple. Just listen to 'Locked', which despite its palpable dubstep influence has a musicality and gentleness that wouldn't have sounded out of place on an album like Rounds; yes, to his infinite credit, even Hebden's most… Read more

One Little Plane is the solo moniker of Aussie singer-songwriter Kathryn Bint, but coming from Kieran Hebden's Text label you probably know that 'Into The Trees' is far more than JUST a singer-songwriter record. Hebden even gets involved as he takes the reigns for production duties, and Radiohead man Johnny Greenwood even pops up for a spot of collaboration. Bint's songs are elevated well by the glossy, assured production, and what might have been a more stripped-down record is multi-layered and deeply unusual.

Glorious transmission from Four Tet's Text imprint, a dedication to Steve Reid from Rocketnumbernine including a remix from Kieran Hebden himself. The duo of Rothko's siblings, Ben and Tom Page, comprise Rocketnumbernine and 'Matthew & Toby' is their first vinyl release. It's a superbly executed fusion of spiritual jazz and Krautrock drive, pairing softly blurred synthline elevation with adroit drumming, able to pivot between pulsing, motorik linearity and tumbling jazz breaks with a lithe flow of energy. In the course of 12 minutes they conduct themselves … Read more

This album is bound to command a little more attention than most singer-songwriter debuts would: you'll notice the production credit is attributed to Four Tet himself, Kieren Hebden, who runs the Text label. One of the first things to strike you about the record is its not by any measure a run of the mill collection of songs, and while it does have its share of few folksy acoustic guitar moments someone along the lines of Bat For Lashes would be a legitimate comparison to make.

Back in stock! It's been absolutely ages since Fridge's last work (the incredible 'Happiness'), far too long in our opinion, but of course since then a certain Keiran Hebden has become something of a household name. Under his snappy Four Tet moniker he's managed to edge his way into public life as the acceptable face of the underground - championing jazzy improvisation, chunky electronics and chopped up post-hop messiness he's won over countless listeners with his unique style, something which sadly Fridge never really managed to do.

Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet delivers two raw but slinky swingers under the Percussions alias. On top, 'KHLHI' shakes out a bobbling beatdown garage rhythm spiced up with spurting modular bleeps and hiding a damn sweet soul sample (fxxk knows what it is) at its core. Flipside comes a little more rugged with a scratchy techno rhythm offset by ethereal pads and a choice, mottled vocal hook.

Cat. Number: TEXT028

Rave-haunted rollers from Grime architect Terror Danjah and prolific producer Four Tet. On 'Killer' the unlikely pair settle on a bashy bruk house sound rife with soundsystem samples and Video-Crash-style stabs and oscillating between Four Tet's woozy Arp, and Danjah's slicker electroid waves resulting in a slinky but gritty kinda bassbin pressure. Flipsude, 'Nasty' plays up to a defter sorta feminine pressure with tucked, kinky drums nimbly synched to gully bass and flitting female vocal counterpoint. Kinda sounds like a dazed Champion workout.

On the remix flex, Four Tet nips and tucks the original to dreamier, late night effect. Wicked 12", don't miss!

Four Tet dials into Kool FM's jungle heritage with the first whiff of his upcoming 'Beautiful Rewind' album. Amen appropriation is all the rage right now and Kieran Hebden's having his slice of the fun with this tribute to one of London's most legendary pirates, slicing Amiga-crunched and start / stop-ped breakbeats into a padded, Afro-beat-inflected 4/4 and wavering synthlines. Flipside, that synthline stars as a drawn-out a capella of sorts. White label copies only, natch.

Rocketnumbernine reprise their trio with Four Tet on a fine pair of sprawling electronic-jazz fusions recorded and mixed by Sam Shepard aka Floating Points. In 'Roseland' brothers Ben (keys) and Tom Page (drums) meld brushed percussion and trickling keys against a sparse backdrop of dubbed out electronics with a languid, lilting Afro-beat appeal. By contrast, the urging bass refrain and cyclic, motorik drums set a more insistent backing to the dense electronics and repetitive keys of 'Metropolis', which, thanks to Sam Shepard's subtle filtering, ebbs and flows with an almost dancefloor-ready appeal.
