Four Tet Words and Music. Kieren Hebden joins Gilles Peterson for two hours of Four Tet material and a chat. “With a mammoth US tour kicking off this week, I thought it an ideal time to upload Kieran’s recent visit to the basement. I was playing his Fridge tracks on DAT way back in the Kiss FM days, and so it’s great to still be working with him on our Steve Reid Foundation project, which raised £11k at Phonox the other night!” Stream above, track listing here.
