Both Happa’s remix of ‘Jupiters’ and Jamie XX’s of ‘Lion’ are now available to stream in full.
Anyone still doubting young Happa‘s ability will find cause to rethink after hearing his ‘Jupiters’ edit in full. A radio rip from a Mary Anne Hobbes‘ XFM show has been doing the rounds for months, but the depth and force of this track only truly comes out in the final version. Happa darkens Four Tet‘s tones into an uncomprising journey through dark 4×4. Watch the last drop!
Jamie XX takes ‘Lion’ into more experimental territory with an inimitable balance of digital and natural warmth. The slo-mo drums give synth notes headroom to lead the track, whilst still leaving space for Four Tet‘s abstract samples to feature. The remix fallout from an album as intriguing and bold as Four Tet‘s ‘Pink’ was always likely to shine, and both sides certainly do.
Stream both tracks below, buy the vinyl later this week and the digital soon after via Four Tet‘s TEXT Records.
