* * * * * Four Tet * * * * *

Four Tet is the name used by Kieran Hebden (born 1977 in Putney, London, UK) for his experimental electronic music-oriented solo efforts, to differentiate from his work with post-rock band Fridge. Hebden’s solo work typically utilises samples lifted from various sources including hip-hop, electronica, techno, jazz, and folk mixed with his own guitar playing. Four Tet shares some stylistic similarities with other musicians, such as Prefuse 73, who use computer editing techniques that give the music a staccato, cut-up feel.

Hebden’s music is notable for its rich, organic sounds and harmonious melodies as well as for eschewing the traditional pop-song format in favour of a more abstract approach. Kieran Hebden began releasing material as Four Tet in 1998 with the 36 minute and 25 second single “Thirtysixtwentyfive” on Trevor Jackson’s Output Recordings label. Later that year, he released a second single, the jazz-influenced “Misnomer”. 1999’s “Dialogue”, again on Output, was Four Tet’s first full-length album release and fused hip-hop drum lines with dissonant jazz samples. This was followed by the double A-side single “Glasshead”/”Calamine”, which was to be Four Tet’s last release on Output.

The producer, real name Kieran Hebden, announced the album earlier today on his Twitter and Facebook pages. He then uploaded a single 38-minute selection to Soundcloud that features unreleased material made between 1997 and 2001. Hebden also indicated that he would release a vinyl version of the album on his Text label at a later date.

On first listen 1081 contains a mix of jazzy broken beats, neo-classical musings and more experimental fare. It marks Hebden’s eighth studio release, following last year’s Pink, although the productions date back to the time of his first album, Dialogue, which was released on Trevor Jackson’s now dormant Output imprint in 1999. Four Tet’s 0181 was released today, January 15th, with a full vinyl release to follow on Text.
