Here’s another post that really should’ve been written up at least a couple months ago, Four Tet’s recent mix he did for FACT magazine. Oh well, better late than never. By the way, although I’m only going to talk about Four Tet’s mix, there are a ton of other great artists that have done FACT Mixes, and I would highly recommend checking them out.
You should by all means judge for yourself, but in my opinion Four Tet put together a pretty spectacular mix; and as a result, it’s been a mainstay on my playlist since first hearing it. Not to mention that he’s been playing a few of the songs from the FACT mix in his recent live sets, so if you see him live, you may (as I did) feel the urge to re-listen to some of the songs again, and again, and (well you get the picture). But seriously, his little synth riff on “Nothing to See” was stuck in my head for at least a week.
I can definitively say from memory that Four Tet played his “Matthew and Toby” remix and his new song “Nothing to See” (which starts about 31 minutes into the mix fyi) at the Treasure Island music festival (which is where I took that picture above) and that those two songs were without a doubt some of the better highlights of TI for me (and are also coincidentally my two favorite songs on the mix).
Anyways, less talk more action. Check out the download link and tracklist below. Enjoy.
