Four Tet, Matthew Dear, Jon Hopkins Early Warnings (Music) Soundboard

When: Thu., Oct. 14, 9 p.m. 2010

Four Tet's latest, the remix collection Angel Echoes (Domino), is longer than the record it draws from, nabbing the handful of high points from There Is Love in You and training them under new management. Featuring remixes of "Angel Echoes" by Caribou and Jon Hopkins—as well as previously vinyl-only remixes of "Sing" and "Love Cry" by Joy Orbison, Roska, and others—it sexes up the most idyllic indietronica qua techno of 2010. On There Is Love Four Tet, aka Kieran Hebden, backs away from his kitchen-sink collagist's approach and moves toward a more focused and strictly rhythmic aesthetic that's closer to traditional techno. That's not to say he's gone retro—he pulls moodiness and space from new sources like dubstep and chillwave, so that his music amounts to the sort of reserved and classy London club cool-out that makes sense coming from the polymathic producer, DJ, and rocker. Matthew Dear and Jon Hopkins open. 18+. —Jessica Hopper
