After selling out his first London show of the new decade which features tastemaker poll-topper JOY ORBISON, Four Tet will be performing under the vaulted arches of East London’s Village Underground venue.
2010 is set to be a big year for Four Tet, with single Love Cry sitting firmly in the year-end best-of lists, and 5th album There Is Love In You winning star reviews across the board.
Having kept busy with remixes of everyone from Radiohead to Madvillain, Four Tet, AKA Kieran Hebden shows no sign of rust on the aforementioned single a lush, sprawling house jam that builds upon a jazzy drum loop over the course of its nine minute run time. The remainder of There Is Love In You's nine tracks go a long way in demonstrating why Four Tet is one of the most dynamic acts now.
