Four Tet Goes BACK2THESTART; Shares Percussions Track; Remixes CHVRCHES

I can't even sleep on flights, but Four Tet is able to craft brilliant music at 37,000 feet it would seem. 'BACK2THESTART' is a seven and half minute banger which features pitch shifted vocal samples from Cheryl Cole and Ellie Goulding, but don't let that scare you away. Kieran Hebden took to twitter to share the track, and supplied some further information as to how the track came into life.

The track was first heard during one of Hebden's Rinse FM sets last October, and his fans have been asking for the full version since then. In true style he's played down the track, simply uploading it to his Soundcloud account - and given fans the chance to download it for free. Good guy Four Tet.

Hedben's productivity doesn't stop there though, as he's shared 'Digital Arpeggios' under his Percussions moniker that has been a feature of his DJ sets for some time, but has never seen an official release. This one clocks in at just over 9 minutes long...

Finally, here's his remix of the CHVRCHES track 'Leave a Trace', which was the band's first single of their upcoming sophomore album Every Eye Open. The remix most probably came about after Four Tet was announced as the support for CHVRCHES huge Alexandra Palace show next year.

All of this falls on top a rather hectic 2015 that has seen most recent Four Tet album Morning/Evening, the posthumous release of his Steve Reid collaboration Strings Of Life, as well as his various production work, including this great track with the rapper Rome Fortune. Oh and a few other bits and pieces. Long may this level of output continue.
