Words and Music with Four Tet

Gilles Peterson talks to pioneering UK producer Kieran Hebden, aka Four Tet, about his career so far and dips in to his record box for some sublime selections.

Gilles speaks in depth to pioneering UK producer, Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet.

London-born Kieran formed the band Fridge whilst at school, with friends Adem Ilhan and Sam Jeffers - the trio released their first album in 1997 on Output Recordings. The following year, he started to release under the Four Tet moniker and this year saw the arrival of his 8th full length Four Tet album, Morning/Evening.

Aside from his solo works, he has collaborated with a whole host of musicians and producers, noticeably with the late jazz drummer Steve Reid, Burial and Thom Yorke and has remixed artists such as The xx, Aphex Twin, Beth Orton, Battles and Radiohead. Last year saw him collaborate on a film composition for a project by Sofia Mattioli, alongside Jamie xx - who he DJed with at last year's 6 Music Festival Late in Newcastle.

In this programme, Kieran talks about his career so far and also dips in to his record box for some sublime selections.
