Kieran Hebden’s own Text Records is about to release a much anticipated piece of music in collaboration with the late Steve Reid. The track in question is a rework of Derrick May’s seminal “Strings of Life”, released in 1987 (!) under his Rhythim is Rhythim moniker. Hebden and Reid performed their cover version almost 20 years later at the 2006 Green Man Festival.
Anthony released his debut album Body Pill this week, a record I haven’t listened to enough to make up my mind yet. What I did enjoy tremendously is his guestmix for the Resident Advisor podcast series. Music from Led Zeppelin, Tim Hecker, Terry Riley, into a proper selection of house and techno.
Press play and read the interview on the RA website, where you can also grab the download.
As much as I hate posting an article with hardly any information value at all, I do love a good track by Four Tet or Jamie xx. Or both, as in this lucky case of one remixing the other. It’s safe to assume that this remix will be out on Kieran’s Text label and in the past those releases followed relatively quick after the track was uploaded to SoundCloud. Keep your eyes open, it shouldn’t take too long!
November 29, 2012 You can now pick up the 12-inch at the Bleep store
As you must’ve heard by now, Four Tet released his new album Pink this week. It’s basically a collection of the last couple singles on his own Text label, with only two of them being previously unreleased, one of them is Lion below.
As promised earlier both tracks, Lion and Peach for Earth, will be out on 12-inch as well. The exact date isn’t yet known (“soon”), but the record will be TEXT019.
Over the course of the last year, Kieran Hebden released several Four Tet 12-inches on his own Text label. Time to think about those that own no record player and have been left out.
Today, it was announced on his website that there will be a new album called Pink that brings those tracks on CD and non-material formats. Let’s take a look at the tracklist.01. Locked
05. 128 Harps
07. Peace for Earth
Pink will be out digitally on August 20, 2012 through Text Records and the Japan-exclusive CD will follow two days later through Hostess Entertainment. The two tracks that haven’t been out on vinyl yet, Lion and Peach for Earth, should follow sometime after the album release.
August 19, 2012 A day earlier than expected, Bleep now has the album available for purchase!
I guess it’s no suprise this caught Kieran’s attention, fans of Four Tet should easily fall in love with this. As always, TEXT012 will be a vinyl exclusive release and you should find it in all good record stores from September 12, 2011!
Kieran Hebden is readying a new release on his own label Text Records. As always when there’s a new Four Tet production, we’re quite excited. In fact this track became an instant favourite, reminds me of some early DFA records.
