Four Tet aka Kieren Hebden is both a prodigious producer and a knowledgable DJ with a penchant for transforming samples, not merely abusing them. In a chate with Ego Trip, Hebden lists some of his favorite samples. Via Ego Trip:
The UK artist/producer’s resume includes everything from reworking Radiohead to acclaimed collabs with late, great jazz drummer, Steve Reid. Needless to say, the man knows his way around a sample. And with a new album, Pink, dropping later this month it was only right we hit up this esteemed, long-time fan of our sample flips series for a serious (sorry, couldn’t resist) sample flips list of his own that reflects the depth of his knowledge and diversity of his ear.
(MILD DISCLAIMER: Says, Hebden – “I can’t really say this is my all-time top 10 because I had to leave stuff out as I don’t want to get anyone in trouble by revealing uncleared samples. Ten of my all time favourites, though, in no particular order.”)
