Four Tet has taken charge of Ninja Tune's Solid Steel radio show, dropping a number of exclusive edits and mixes.
Four Tet is - quite simply - on fire right now. New album 'Beautiful Rewind' is a probing, penetrating return while a flurry of one off events and guest mixes have kept Kieren Hebden in the public eye.
Yet this new mix might well be his most intriguing for some time. Ninja Tune's Solid Steel show is now 25 years old, and to celebrate the label have commissioned a number of special shows.
Four Tet has stepped up, delivering a two hour mix packed with unreleased edits and exclusive re-workings. Commenting on the mix, Kieren Hebden said:
"This mix is made from unofficial edits and mixes. I guess these edits were mainly made to be played in clubs and I've always like the tradition of DJs extending and rearranging to make things work in their sets. Most of the edits here are unreleased because they are just tools for DJs really. The Black Unity one was done for the Solid Steel US tour that I did in 2001. Thanks to Daphni, Floating Points and Happa for the edits I got from them."
