Four Tet has incredible ears.
So, in a way, it was inevitable that Kieran Hebden would be seduced by grime, by its aggressive, heavily-layered futurism. Communicating with fans via Twitter, Four Tet confirmed late last year that a number of collaborations were at the planning stages.
Amongst them was a grime track with Terror Danjah - arguably one of the genre's defining instrumental voices. Since then, fans have been desperate for more details.
Yesterday (January 15th) Kieran Hebden tweeted that the tracks would be titled 'Killer' and 'Nasty' respectively. Four Tet has since deleted the tweet, but since Terror Danjah's long term home Hyperdub has social networked the news Clash presumes that it is legitimate.
Due for release via Hebden's own Text Records imprint, 'Killer' b/w 'Nasty' is set to follow the upcoming reissue of Crazy Bald Heads’ ‘First Born’.
