this track is so sweet.
...can't wait to hear it properly.
i want to hear it!
I'll be happy
Liking this very much.
Is his more recent stuff like this then? (Burial collab. aside, as I've got that) but I remember he released an album recently which was a apparently a bit more techno which I haven't heard.
looks like the new stuff is pushing that forward in that vein, which im really excited about - its on a whole new level from his old stuff. i really hope there's an album on the way.
Can't wait :)

I expected a set made up largely of the sort of stuff he used to play at Border Community nights, but was really surprised - about an hour of his own stuff and similar followed by an hour or so of UK funky and old school garage! I'm definitely hearing the funky influence in his new stuff, but it was still bizarre (and a welcome surprise) to see Kieran Hebden playing Hard House Banton, Roska and So Solid Crew's 'Oh No'.
I really like Love Cry, really looking forward to the Roska remix in particular, and I reckon the album should be excellent given his current form.
so solid are on his dj kicks thing, i've heard him talking about it in interviews too. I'm not a fan of his new stuff, seems a little banal, not sure how into his old stuff I am either, haven't listened to him in a while.
I guess it's just because he's never done stuff like that when I've seen him DJ before, I just assumed he wouldn't have played any. Was good to get some funky in anyway, it seems like it's gradually starting to invade Bristol which can only be a good thing.
Point me in the direction of some good new funky tunes please! It's been a little quiet on my end lately. I keep hearing the same stuff that I already know...
it seems a bit ambiguious and actually, dare i say it, a little boring. its like old fourtet in terms of beat and percussion and new four tet in temrs of the straght beat.. im sure it would be great to hear played out and loud in a club, but at my desk it's not exactly blowing my skirt up, so to speak.
i mean old fourtet in terms of the sound design of the beat and percussion and the organic nature of it. new four tet as in the 4/4 beat..
Love Cry just plods along on an old funk bassline and the b-side is anonymous gamelan which is a retrograde step from the stuff on Everything Ecstatic. I really liked the Burial collaboration and I'm still holding out hope for the album, but this hasn't done much to whet my appetite.
Joy Orbison's done a pretty sterling job on Love Cry. I really like the original but this is a world of goodness better.
I'm not that fussed about Four Tet on his own he's never really grabbed me but I like it when he jumps in with the young tallented bass scene lot. Its almost as if they know how to make his songs better than he does. The Roska Roska Roska! Remix sounds cool too.
...but he's playing at The Dome in Tuffnell Park in Feb. Joy Orbison's supporting so I may well go this.
I saw him at TDK (I think) about 4 years ago and he was dull. My Dad's quite keen to go so I'll only go on the provisor that he pays!
I suppose it depends whether watching someone play around with a laptop on stage irritates you. It seems to be a foregone conclusion with most of the music I go to watch live, so it doesn't bother me that much.
but more along the lines of Kid606, Shitmat, Com.a et al...so it's been a bit more upbeat and I'm spending my time jumping around like a goon. I was hoping for a nice wind down after seeing Gay Against You and DJ Scotch Egg but I was left feeling rather bored.
He doesn't exactly make it particularly busy looking! I liked the way he used to extend his tracks out for ages and bleed them into others, around the time of Everything Ecstatic, but I don't know if he really does that much anymore.
I find it quite hypnotic, and the climax is astounding. The b-side is extremely weak, but I'll forgive him and wait for the album.
