Published Jun 25, 2010Four Tet's albums stand on their own as remarkable achievements, but another fascinating aspect of Kieran Hebden's recorded output is his ability to immerse himself in collaboration. From Caribou and Burial to the late Steve Reid, Four Tet's collaborative work remains some of his best. This summer, he'll continue down that path, joining forces with dubstep producer Mala for a split twelve-inch on the Soul Jazz label.
The record is due at the end of July, and features a song from each artist. On the A-side, Four Tet contributes the track "Nothing to See," while Mala drops "Don't Let Me Go." For the uninitiated, Mala is one half of the UK production duo Digital Mystikz, who have spent the last six years dropping some intense dubstep singles. Both tracks can be streamed here.
The single comes in advance of Soul Jazz's Future Bass compilation, which is scheduled for release in September. Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.
