I'm a little late in posting Four Tet's new single "Locked," but I figure it's still worth a post because everything Kieran Hebden touches turns to gold. That's not saying quite enough, though -- he throws so much style and scope into each release that it's hard to deny the creativity coming from this UK musician.
"Locked" just dropped on Four Tet's SoundCloud in anticipation for the autumn release of Fabriclive 59, which features some fresh tunes from Hebden as well as several other prominent DJs in the UK electronic scene. According to Four Tet:
This mix is not about my DJing. It's about London and Fabric and nights out and my take on all that. The memories and the influences. I used old and new music, I used recordings of fabric, and I made new tracks of my own for it. I hope people play it fucking loud and lose their minds in it and remember or imagine what it's all about.
Fabriclive 59 debuts in Europe on September 19 and in North American on October 18.
