London-based Four Tet, aka Kieran Hebden, is a genre all his own, a maestro of electronic sounds and a superstar on Domino. He’s…

Actually, you know what? I can’t really add a whole lot of intelligent commentary to this treasure trove of tracks Four Tet has added to SoundCloud. It’s time best spent listening, which puts me in a happy, wordless state. (And, I might add, reminds me to work on my chops. See if it has the same effect on you?)

Any question as to whether free tracks on places like SoundCloud will dampen demand for purchasing music ought to be easily put to rest; to me, they only whet my appetite for more. (In fact, where are even paid links to higher-quality downloads? Only a couple of mixes are available. I’d gladly pony up for this whole set.) Here, Four Tet remixes Jon Hopkins – another English virtuoso of rich, digital sounds – and Hopkins remixes Four Tet, and Caribou and Mosca remix Four Tet, and Four Tet plays live here in New York at Le Poisson Rouge. Premium-quality productions, all.
