I imagine “Burial & Four Tet” works like a kind of magnet for your cursor. Or a flashing light on a homepage filled with news, reviews, and album art. Do you press play before or after you read this? Probably best not to bring up inquiries questioning the value of music journalism when there are more important things to talk about (like this collaboration), but I figured you were already here, so I might as well wear my journalist heart on my sleeve for you all to see.
Hey guys: check out this unreleased collaborative track between Burial and Four Tet! “I hope someone’s recording this for YouTube.” That Hebden dude dropped it on the UK’s Rinse FM listeners during his recent eight-hour DJ set, which still doesn’t claim my Favorite Marathon DJ Set spot on my “Favorite Things That Have Happened” list.
Listen to it below. The whole song has been Buri(al)ed, but you can still hear a few Four Tet button presses and knob turns through the six feet of weightless dirt.
