Four Tet (aka Kieran Hebden) returns to North America with his first set of live shows in over 2 years including a very special show at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, March 13th. These dates follow the release of last year’s critically acclaimed mini album Ringer and Kieran’s latest collaborative album with Jazz drummer Steve Reid titled NYC (both Domino 2008).
Appearing with Four Tet on a handful of dates is Domino Record’s latest signing, Jon Hopkins, a 28 year-old electronic musician & composer from London, England. His new album, Insides (Out May 5), showcases an intriguing musical aesthetic to brilliant effect. Insides is about juxtaposition: natural, arcane textures welded to pulsing, hypnotic rhythms, beautiful acoustic melodies set against jarring bass. The music is reminiscent of the beautiful melodies and harsh dirty beats of other British artists like Four Tet, Squarepusher, Burial, and Aphex Twin.
