Four Tet drops off another new track under mysterious symbol moniker
After having tweeted a screenshot of the track — the undecipherable ‘ ҉ ҉.·๑ඕั ҉ ̸ ̡ ҉ ҉.·๑ඕั ҉ ̸ ̡ ҉ ҉.·๑ඕั ҉ ̸ ̡ ҉ ҉.·๑ඕั ҉ ̸ ̡ ҉ ҉.·๑ඕั ҉ ̸ ̡ ҉ ҉.·๑ඕั ҉ ̸ ̡ ҉ ҉.·๑ඕั ҉ — under the artist name ⣎⡇ꉺლ༽இ•̛)ྀ◞ ༎ຶ ༽ৣৢ؞ৢ؞ؖ ꉺლ, the producer, born Kieran Hebden, added the swirling number to his extensive and carefully curated Spotify playlist which too bears the symbols.
This is not the first time Four Tet’s uploaded original tracks under the moniker. Following the release of his most recent studio album New Energy, he added two to the channel. With the use of ambiguous monikers used by the likes of both him and Nicolas Jaar in recent memory, who’s to say where popular artists may potentially release their tunes in the future.
For now, Hebden’s new work comes on the heels of his visceral remix of Bicep’s halcyon club culture homage “Opal.” The producer is currently in the midst of an extensive tour and will be delivering a brand new BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix this weekend.
