Four Tet and Jamie XX

This one’s been floating around the rumor mill for a while now but that doesn’t mean there’s any less reason to be excited about these two notoriously sovereign artists (and both products of the Elliott School in London) working on music together. Kieran Hebden (Four Tet) is known for the occasional collaboration (highlights include releases on his own Text label with Burial and Thom Yorke, listen to both below), but this is a new twist on his existing working relationships (The xx). The end product is a fresh and punchy track that highlights Smith’s affection for shuffle beats and the two artists’ shared melodic capabilities creating a dreamy, if peripheral sort of groove, that sticks after it fades. All-in-all a decidedly complementary pairing, and perhaps with their shared roots this may not be the last we hear from these two as a unit. We certainly would not be offended! Hear the radio rip below.
