Four Tet – For These Times (Original Mix)
Kieran Hebden, the maestro behind the cryptic production outfit Four Tet, dabbles in percussive house on his latest release. “For These Times” is less conceptual than much of his previous work, leaning more in favor of creating a thick groove than a minimalist masterpiece. Staying in the murky waters that have come to define the Four Tet sound, Hebden weaves jazz elements with shuffling hi hats and ghostly vocal cuts. Devoid of soaring builds and cataclysmic drops, “For These Times” represents house in its purest form, with an undeniable groove and gripping drum fills.
