It would appear Kieran Hebden has been pretty busy recently conjuring up two massive dance records at the same time, for two separate projects. First, JT gets a Four Tet makeover for his omnipresent “Suit & Tie” record. Its use of the vocal stems makes it one of the more original interpretations and features some tech house to compliment a very minimalistic acapella version of the record. Also included in this post is Four Tet‘s contribution to the Nonplus Records compilation release titled, “Four These Times.” Boddikah, Joy Orbison, and Lowtec comprise of the other talent featured on the “Think and Change” project. The bass in Four Tet’s record finds its groove right away and features a simple vocal sample repeating one line over and over at changing frequencies. The percussion in it has his fans admiring a sound more reminiscent of his earlier works — an impressive feat considering how different these two productions are.
