Hi-Res
This is the tenth studio album by the stalwart of the British electronic scene; Sixteen Oceans offers an hour-long journey through Four Tet’s inspired mind. The album which could too hastily be labelled ‘ambient’ starts off upbeat with School and Baby, a perfect warm-up with a 2-step beat and a “Take Me On” chopped vocal (a catchy Ellie Goulding sample). Granted, Harpsichord (featuring notes played on the instrument of the same name), Green and 4T Recordings (which resound like the soundtrack to a forest on Pandora) are pretty ambient, but they also prove that Four Tet is no one trick pony. The producer dives into downtempo/electronica with tracks such as the single Teenage Birdsong and its jumble of blades and keyboards, spoils us with the Burial-esque underground beat of Love Salad and gets trippy with aquatic samples (Bubbles At Overlook 25th March 2019). Some standouts from this album full of surprises include Something in the Sadness, a nod to Mathew Jonson, and Insect Near Piha Beach, started off by a heavy techno kick and gradually soothed by a swarm of strings and heavenly voices that result in an astonishingly masterful sonic chiaroscuro. ©️ Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Since his most recent album New Energy (2017), Four Tet (Kieran Hebden) has stayed relatively busy, releasing a live album in 2018 and the two standalone singles –"Teenage Birdsong" and "Dreamer"–in 2019. His new EP Anna Painting is a return to form, mixing energetic four-on-the-floor rhythms with beautiful, sweeping ambient synths and his uniquely organic sampling style. The opening title track begins with sixteen bars of a strange, looping voice sample, which then explodes into a techno beat layered with ambient texture. "Lahaina Noon" takes cues from Aphex Twin's 1995 classic ...I Care Because You Do

A crazy tinkerer from the techno sphere, Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet pens a ninth UFO, of which he has a knack for creating. The bulimic British—who, when he doesn’t work on his own music, mixes for The XX, A$AP Rocky, Oneohtrix Point Never, Aphex Twin, Explosions In The Sky, Super Furry Animals, Radiohead, Ellie Goulding, Lana Del Rey, Manic Street Preachers, Sia and even Black Sabbath—pursues here his 360° electro-new age trip armed with the Ableton Live software. His world is atmospheric at times, overtly techno at other times, sometimes even world, and, in any case, completely impossible to pin down. Four Tet being absolutely eclectic (he had penned a splendid FabricLive volume in perfect line with his kaleidoscopically personality, an intense trip in 2-step and garage land where we notably crossed paths with Dan Snaith, his friend from Caribou, but also with Burial, Crazy Bald Heads and even the master Ricardo Villalobos), his disc looks like him more than ever. It’s some great piece of art with no blinkers on, conceived with Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith on synths (on LA Trance) and Tom Bake at the hang (on Lush). © MD/Qobuz
