The name Four Tet is about as golden as they come in the electronic music world -- everything that Kieran Hebden a.k.a. Four Tet does is not only accepted but praised by the masses. Ten years ago, he was an up-and-comer with a strange but innovative way of creating music. He consistently drove his creative approach to electronic music over the years, combining jazz, tribal rhythms, collaborations with Steve Reid, laptop virtuosos and more.
So now it's time to think back over the previous decade to when Four Tet released Rounds, one of the albums that gained him recognition and got him noticed. It's being reissued for the tenth anniversary, packaged up along with a Live In Copenhagen bonus disc and it's due out on May 14 via Domino Records.
"Hands" was the classic intro the album, the definition of a new sound and new vision. Check it out below, along with the song "As Serious As Your Life."
