Artist Biography

Four Tet, aka Kieran Hebden, is a British DJ and producer who serves up indie electronic music, blending organic and engineered sounds. He started his career as the guitar player for Fridge, an instrumental group he co-founded in 1995 that mixed instrumentation with electronics. The band released several albums and EPs via Output Recordings and Go! Beat. The former label issued Kieran’s debut solo release of the single “Double Density” in 1997. It wasn’t until 1998 that Kieran debuted his Four Tet project with the single “Thirtysixtwentyfive” which was a jazzy track. Four Tet’s debut album Dialogue arrived in 1999. His second album Pause came out in 2001 after he signed to Domino. This album used more acoustic guitars than his previous releases, dubbing the sound as “folktronica” by the media. He started his own label called Text Recordings which released Fridge’s fourth album Happiness. In 2003, Four Tet released his sample-based 2003 album Rounds which received widespread critical claim. The album appeared on many year-end lists and also got Four Tet the opening slot for Radiohead’s European tour. In the following two decades, he collaborated with artists including Madvillain, Sia, Ellie Goulding, and eventually Skrillex in 2021. This collaboration got Four Tet working with Skrillex and Fred again.. for the 2023 single “Baby again..” and playing with them at Coachella 2023, Madison Square Garden, and in Times Square.
