Artist Focus: Four Tet

Some artists leave a legacy that stretches far beyond a great single or a number 1 album. 

Artist Focus is a new Sunday series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the musicians that have defined the sound of modern music. From the stone cold classics to the unearthed gems and forgotten B-sides, our community tribute an hour of music by a single artist that has had a notable impact on their life.

Selected by ASJCs Alex Wiseman, this week our Artist Focus takes a look at one of the leading lights of contemporary electronic music – Four Tet.

“Since hearing ‘Love Cry’ in university about 10 years ago I’ve held a deep affinity for the music of Four Tet/Kieran Hebden – His music, dj/live sets and radio shows have provided me with so much inspiration and led me down the path that led to some pivotal moments in my life. This hour of music was just my own personal little tribute to him including some of my favourite tracks and some that might have not have heard. With a prolific career spanning the best part of three decades it wasn’t easy to narrow it down to just an hour worth of music but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless.

Big thanks for to the MD team for giving me the opportunity and thanks for listening.”
