About the Artist
Four Tet was born Kieran Hebden in London, England
and attended Elliot School where he and his fellow teenage classmates formed a band Fridge which signed a recording contract
when he was 15. It was not until Hebden released his second single, the aptly titled Thirtysixtwentyfive which clocked in
at thirty six minutes and twenty five seconds long, that he began calling himself Four Tet. He has done remixes for some of
the biggest names in music including Radiohead, Madvillain, Thom Yorke, Super Furry Animals, The xx, Beth Orton, Tegan and
Sara, Badly Drawn Boy, Bloc Party, Boom Bip, and many more. He has released seven albums to date: Dialogue, Pause, Rounds,
Everything Ecstatic, There Is Love In You, Pink, and 2013's Beautiful Rewind. He has also released a limited edition live
album, three mix albums, a double album of remixes, and four albums as Kieran Hebden. Music is clearly in the blood of this
talented and prolific musician who shows no signs of slowing down his output and continues to put on one of the best shows
in all of electronic music.
After releasing a few well-received singles, Four Tet was contacted
by Warped Records to make a contribution to their tenth anniversary album of remixes. Four Tet did a remix of the first song
off of Selected Ambient Works Volume II by Aphex Twin. The album received a lot of attention, as did Four Tet's remix in particular,
and gained him a lot of well-deserved notoriety in the electronic music scene. The following year he released his second full
length, Pause, which received more exposure both to fans and to critics who named his music folktronica due to his use of
samples from folk music and the need of critics to classify music.
Electronic music shows
provide for some of the most exciting concert going experiences anyone could ask for, and performances by Four Tet and the
live instrumentation accompanying him are definitely no exception. You have been dancing and partying most of the night and
then suddenly the music picks up and the whole venue seems to surge with energy. Four Tet has taken the stage and started
belting out his utterly unique sound that has everyone in the venue going wild. The party has really just started in earnest
and now you're hoping that this night never ends. Just when you think it cannot get any better than this, Four Tet increases
the energy level even higher as the audience starts to go crazier and crazier. Dancing and sweating the night away with a
crowd full of enthusiastic Fourtet fans is something you will never forget and by the time he ends his set you will be anxiously
awaiting the next time he comes to town.
Four Tet gained some big time exposure when he hooked
up with Radiohead for their 2003 world tour and did a remix of their song Scatterbrain of of Hail to the Thief which the band
liked so much they released it twice, first on the 2+2=5 single and then again on their COM LAG EP. He would later continue
the partnership by releasing a split 12" with Thom Yorke and Burial in 2011 titled Ego/Mirror. In January of 2013 Four Tet
gave a late holiday gift to his fans by releasing an album, 0181, that collected unreleased material from 1997 through 2001
as one single track and was available for free online.
