Four Tet and Silver Columns in the mix
Four Tet - aka producer and DJ Keiran Hebden - takes over 6 Music for his first 6 Mix since 2008. One of the UK's most respected electronic producers, Keiran started making music with post-rock band Fridge back in the mid 1990s, before putting out his first music as Four Tet in 1998. Since then he's released a number of critically acclaimed albums, collaborated with Burial and late jazz legend Steve Reid, as well as remixing the likes of Aphex Twin and Radiohead. He released his critically acclaimed new album 'There Is Love In You' in January this year, and this week releases a new single 'Angel Echoes' , featuring remixes from Caribou amongst others. Four Tet has also been busy on the summer festival circuit playing Glastonbury and T In The Park, with shows lined up for Reading/Leeds Festival and Bestival for August and September. In his latest 6 Mix, he plays music which has inspired him from James Holden and Roberto Donnini alongside current favourites from Luke Abbot and Rocketnumbernine. Support comes from a guest mix by electronic duo Silver Columns. The band, who are the side project of the Pictish Trail and Kieran Hebden's former partner in Fridge, Adem, released their debut album 'Yes And Dance' earlier this year, and provide a mix of electronic influenced alternative sounds.
