In 100 years time when music historians look back at the most influential electronic music artists of the our generation, you can bet on it that Four Tet AKA Kieran Hebden will be an integral part of that conversation. To date the Englishman has produced 3 albums on the highly regarded Domino Records, and have also collaborated with high profile artists like Thom Yorke, Steve Reich and Neneh Cherry (he produced her 2014 critically acclaimed comeback album ‘Blank Project’). Obtaining commercial appeal, while still managing to be respected by the underground chin strokers, it is safe to say that Four Tet might just be one of the most respected electronic music artists on the planet.

With the news that let Them Eat Cake has sold out, comes the timely announcement that Four Tet will play an exclusive sideshow at Brown Alley for Friends Of Friends. Starting at 6PM, this twilight show might be your only chance to see Four Tet in 2016 – and at only $33 it might also be the best value for money of any show you will see in the new year.

Four Tet is the electronic outlet for the solo work of Keiran Hebden. His first single was the 36-minute ‘Thirtysixtwentyfive’ on Trevor Jackson’s Output Recordings label (1998); ‘Dialogue’ was Four Tet’s first full-length album, fusing hip-hop drum lines with dissonant jazz samples.

In 2001, Four Tet’s second album ‘Pause’ was released on Domino and found Hebden using more folk and electronic samples, which was quickly dubbed “folktronica”, while “Rounds”, Hebden’s most ambitious album to date, was released in May 2003.

In March and April of 2005, Four Tet performed two shows of improvisational music, in collaboration with jazz drummer Steve Reid, in Paris and London. He also appears on Steve Reid Ensemble 2005 album Spirit Walk. This collaboration was extended into a series of international tours, and the release of two albums, The Exchange Session Vol. 1 and The Exchange Session Vol. 2 over the course of 2005 and 2006.

Hebden has also remixed artists including Madvillain, Bloc Party, Super Furry Animals, Beth Orton, Badly Drawn Boy, The Notwist, Boom Bip, Kings of Convenience and Radiohead.
