Four Tet – Lion (Jamie XX Remix)
Lion is a track that’s been picked out of Four Tet’s sixth album, Pink, released in August this year and completely re-envisioned by none other than The XX’s star producer, Jamie XX. A man of seemingly endless soul. The plain and simple fact that he’s chosen to remix Four Tet’s work is a perfect example of this “soul” but it’s the end product that really showcases what lurks within the heart of the man.
Fluid Bass-licks and an ambient roll of pitter-patter drums that are eventually replaced by the gentle groove of dark, industrial house. Serious hook up from one of my Uni connections in Hull. Man rolls with an up and coming artist in Drum & Bass, Shimah, who I’ve rated in the past for releases on Real Playaz, so when it comes to electronic music, I trust that this boy knows what he’s talking about. This trust has had a 100% success rate to date and it’s only getting better…
Safe Hook Up from my big man, J-Spellington, in Hull!
