Though they share a loose affiliation through the Young Turks collective, Four Tet and Jamie xx’s history extends much deeper. Four Tet previously remixed The xx’s “VCR” and “Angels”, and Jamie xx returned the favor by reworking “Lion”. Last night, the pair unveiled a new collaboration during Young Turks’ takeover of the Sydney radio station FBi 94.5.
Entitled “Seesaw”, the track is built on a mix of thudding house drums and angelic vocal samples, which radiates a certain kind of warmth and serenity. Listen below.
The session also included the debut of new solo material, including a Jamie xx track entitled “Sleep Sound”, a Four Tet remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Burn”, and collaborations with Terror Danjah and John Talobat/Axel Boman’s Talaboman. Plus, Sampha called in from the UK to preview an unheard version of the Dual EP cut “Demons”. Replay the entire session here.
