Fresh off of his DJ residency at Plastic People in London (which just ended on the 11th), Four Tet (Kieran Hebden) is free to roam about the cabin. The seatbelt sign is off and he's got a new album titled There Is Love in You on the way.
Most of the music on the new album was influenced in some way by his residency at Plastic People.
"A lot of the music on the new Four Tet album was tested out at these Plastic People nights and this club is a big inspiration to me," said Kieran when speaking about the album. It will be released on January 26th via Domino Records.
For the final show, a limited edition CD-R Plastic People Mix CD to everyone who attended. The CD was only available at the show, and will not be available for purchase.
An advance listen to one of the songs sees Mr. Hebden on a bit of a mind bender, washing the background sounds in heady psychedelics, while the rhythm has definitely been influenced with his time with Steve Reid. The beats are much more broad, solid and lively.
His tour schedule for 2010 is looking to bounce back and forth between the U.K. and the U.S. wit ha stop at the Noise Pop music festival. Nathan Fake will be opening on all of the shows.
