Four Tet Pause Four Tet's legendary Pause is available again on vinyl! There are few electronic artists who can make music this vibrant. The music is fluid, soft, like the sun coming out just after a spring rain. And like many of those instances after the rain there is the odd unsettling moment when the clouds threaten to return, casting a pallor over the day. That moment is when No More Mosquitoes shifts the mood uncomfortably, the odd electronic noises buzzing like a threatening storm, a child singing the title of the song in eerie repetition. This moment breaks up the serenity that has dominated the album thus far, refreshing and giving it a newfound sense of purpose, making the acoustic ambiance of Tangle a necessary breath of air as the clouds roll back.

Four Tet Fabriclive 59 Latest FabricLive edition, this time with Four Tet piecing together an intricate mix of old school rhythmic garage with futuristic electronic tracks, (including both his own productions, 'Locked' & 'Pyramid' which feature on his latest Text 12"), a really special selection. Four Tet (aka Kieran Hebden) adds something special to the FABRICLIVE series, with this, the 59th compilation. The mix has a distinct narrative and unearths music that hadn’t previously had a great deal of exposure. This project for Kieran has become more than just the mix itself; it’s been an adventure into the past as he sought out not only classics, but searched for rarer tracks he may have missed at the time when he was immersed in the original 90s 2-step/ garage scene. The music is important, but the experience of finding so many forgotten records and producers became an intrinsic part of the story - meeting specialist record dealers, months of email exchanges with old friends and acquaintances, Twittering, nights on Discogs, dead ends and confusing leads. In the mix, forgotten gems reside next to current tracks that are dear to him and a number of his own tracks made specially for the CD - something he’s been doing for his DJ sets for many years. He’s also explored the idea of the club itself, sending his audio engineer friend Sasha Lewis to make field recordings from fabric, which feature as a highlight and pause, breaking the mix into different parts - as if you’re moving within the club's space to hear different DJs. In fact, the mix is somewhat topsy-turvy, starting out fast and then slowing down. Fabric Records CD
