Red Bull Music Academy presents Four Tet & Special Guests

Kieran Hebden’s game is virtuosity. Since honing his skills as a member of post-rock outfit Fridge and releasing his first solo projects on Trevor Jackson’s Output Recordings in the 90s, the man most commonly known as Four Tet has developed one of the most distinct voices in electronic music. Whether it’s instrumental hip hop or folk-fueled micro house, remixes for everyone from Radiohead to Nathan Fake, collaborations with Burial and Jamie xx, or genre-defying DJ sets with his brother-from-another Dan Snaith, this Londoner now residing in Brooklyn never fails to leave his mark. A longtime team member of the Red Bull Music Academy, Four Tet now brings his live show to Webster Hall, with support from special guests Jon Hopkins (Domino) and 2013 Academy participant koreless (Young Turks). And yes, the ticket price is correct.

Four Tet

Four Tet, aka Kieran Hebden, has been raising musical eyebrows for some time now, starting way back with his post-rock trio Fridge, whose first releases were on Trevor Jackson’s Output label. Since then, Kieran has taken off on solo flights and plenty of collaborations as Four Tet, climbing aboard the good ship Domino and linking with cats like J Dilla and Thom Yorke along the way, all while releasing albums that constantly raise the bar as to what is possible within the realm of electronic music. Add to that his collaborations with Caribou, Burial, and Steve Reid, and you’re still only scratching the surface of his musical universe. Revealing a sharp pair of ears for producing stellar remixes for artists like The xx and Madvillain—not to mention operating his own label, Text—and Kieran’s finger has always been on the musical pulse.

Jon Hopkins

Composer, pianist, and self-taught studio wizard Jon Hopkins makes big, bold music using walls of synths, twinkling melodies, and amorphous bass rumbles. Over the course of three albums—and another forthcoming in June 2013—Hopkins has produced a body of work that proves there is plenty of room for electronic music that tugs at both the heart and the feet. Herbie Hancock, David Holmes, contemporary choreographer Wayne McGregor, lo-fi folkster King Creosote, and Coldplay have all called upon the 28-year-old Londoner’s handiwork as a producer and composer. He has also collaborated with Brian Eno for the 2010 album Small Craft on a Milk Sea. His remixes, meanwhile, include tracks by Wild Beasts, Nosaj Thing, Imogen Heap, and Four Tet.

Koreless

Born and raised in Bangor in North West Wales, Koreless, aka Lewis Roberts, relocated to Glasgow for four years to study Naval Architecture. While spending his summer holidays building ships, he secretly dedicated weeks honing another craft, his music. After Jamie xx introduced Young Turks to koreless’ first track “Up Down Up Down” in 2011, the trailblazing label invited him on his first trip to London, to play alongside Bullion, Pariah, Sampha, and Kwes. Since then, Koreless has released two singles, collaborated with Sampha and Jacques Greene, and sailed into the hearts of Internet ravers ’round the globe. Both simple and sophisticated, Koreless’ tracks should soon see this 21st-century Noah and his ark on a nonstop cruise around the world’s most discerning dancefloors.
