Brit EDM/IDM producer Kieran Hebden usually performs as Four Tet, a long-standing LN fave. Yesterday, he released a compilation of older material called Randoms (artwork above). Here’s his description:
“Over the years there have been some pieces of music that I have made specially for compilation projects or have ended being released only as part of a compilation album. As time passes I look back at this music and find the context it was originally put in often feels a bit random now. So I have put together this new album called Randoms that brings together this music in a different way. The oldest track here is Field from 1996, the first Four Tet track ever released on Leaf Records Invisible Soundtracks compilation. The most recent is Gillie Amma I Love You which was made for a charity project called BOATS in 2013. All the tracks here have been released before and I am sure some internet searching will give you the full details if you are interested. Thank you to everyone who originally commissioned and released this music. The artwork for this was made by Jason Evans.”
The track “Moma” appeared on the Blonde Redhead-curated We Are the Works in Progress benefit after the 2011 tsunami in Japan, but my “internet searching” didn’t reveal many other details. Hebden is currently in a tiff with SoundCloud, so Randoms is a “name your price” (down to zero – as in, free) download on the Four Tet bandcamp website.
