Four Tet recruits Ellie Goulding for new single, ‘Baby’

Following his announcement of his Sixteen Oceans album earlier this week, Four Tet has unveiled the LP’s newest single, “Baby.” The track sees Ellie Goulding lend her vocals to a classically ambient Four Tet production. Preceded by his 2017 studio album New Energy, the 16-track Sixteen Oceans will join the English producer’s extensive discography as the 10th studio album under his alias.

Effortless vocal splices caress the effervescent textures crafted in “Baby,” with brisk percussion and downtempo chimes contrasting to create a serene, yet momentum-driving field. The rhythmic pace carries through almost the entirety of the track, before slowing down into an atmospheric interlude washed with calming nature sounds of bird song, river flow, and deep bells.

Previously released single, “Teenage Birdsong” will join “Baby” as one of the tracks on the upcoming album. Released in 2019, “Teenage Birdsong” has received two official remixes by Avalon Emerson and Overmono respectively.

Sixteen Oceans is slated for release in March.

Elements Music & Arts Festival returns to Lakewood, PA this Memorial Day weekend, dialing in the magic of an outdoor camping festival while saturating its 4 themed stages with tantalizing talent from top to bottom.

As in previous years, each of the festival’s four stages delineate a different element, with the Fire Stage truly living up to its name this time around. What at first might seem top-heavy, with acts like Bonobo and Diplo headlining, ends up fully fleshed out as you continue down the list to names like the ever-so-smooth Chris Lake, Golf Clap, and local dignitaries Walker & Royce. The other three stages (Earth, Air and Water) continue do their part in adding to Element’s pulpy, diverse lineup, hosting Four Tet, Claude VonStroke, Rusko, Emancipator, Yotto, and Bob Moses, just to give a taste.

Elements is about more than just the expansive lineup, however, as is the summer festival experience. In whatever downtime attendees find themselves with between sets, they’re encouraged to explore the festival’s sprawling scenery and multi-sensory installations and activities. 

Tickets for 2020’s Elements Music and Arts Festival are now available.

Four Tet‘s new album, Sixteen Oceans, is officially complete and ready for release later this spring. Landing in March, the follow up to 2017’s New Energy features 16 tracks in total, revealed in an Instagram post simply captioned, “The new album is done.”

Despite a three-year gap between studio LPs, Four Tet has kept relatively busy with the release of his Anna Painting EP, two live albums, the launch of a new alias, live art exhibitions, and his first Essential Mix since 2010. He’s also steadily released loose singles in the interim, though, the upcoming Sixteen Oceans LP promises to be well worth the wait.

A week after Four Tet‘s contribution, “Midnight Hour” has received an extended remix package. Underground house titan Mall Grab brings a unique flavor to the track, speeding it up to 140 BPM and adding a hefty kick. Tunisian veteran-producer Loco Dice doubles down on the house rhythms and patterns of the original to create a lengthened cut that should easily fit in sets. To round out the project, Skrillex and Boys Noize contribute their dub mix to join Four Tet’s remix.

This release is yet another chapter in the story of the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted track. From Grammy nominations to remix packages, the Dog Blood team’s latest won’t say die.

For over two decades, Movement has been a consistent leading force in Detroit’s lively electronic music scene. While Movement hosts electronic performers from a broad musical background, the emphasis on techno has made the festival a must-visit for fans of the genre. Based on the announcement of the first 10 acts, 2020’s show holds true to the high standard festival organizers have set for themselves.

Techno giant and Drumcode leader Adam Beyer returns as one of the early highlights the lineup. Adding to the techno-heavy roster: Italian producer and Music On founder Marco Carola, tech house stalwart Maceo Plex, Kobosil, and Detroit native DJ Stingray.

Masked dance music producer Boris Brejcha joins Grammy winner Louie Vega and underground dance showman Seth Troxler at Movement 2020 as well. Additional performers include The Black Madonna, who recently made headlines by backing out of the Amazon-supported Intersect Music Festival, and the ever-eclectic Four Tet, who recently shared his remix of Skrillex and Boys Noize’sMidnight Hour.”

Movement Festival is hosted at Hart Plaza along the Detroit River. Tickets are on sale now. Read about the history of the festival here.

Skrillex, Boys Noize and Ty Dolla $ign’s “Midnight Hour” refuses to yield time in the limelight.
