This month our friends at Solé Bicycles have partnered up with our pals over at Thump, the killer new electronic music and culture channel from VICE, to bring us a truly special fixtape. The godfather of funk, the french king of disco, the Ed Banger legend himself, Breakbot laid down close to 40 minutes of slow burning grooves. Although this tape is timeless, we highly urge you to throw it on now.
VICE’s Creators Project has put together a fantastic mini-documentary to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Four Tet‘s seminal album, Rounds, highlighting his influences and inspirations that helped him create the career-redirecting record. Kieran Hebdan AKA Four Tet explains many interesting facts about the album’s process not known until now, all accompanied by pleasant animated still photography.

Check out the video above to see what it’s like behind the booth and a glimpse into the mind of the master mixer!
