Jon Hopkins recently provided an exceedingly lovely remix of Four Tet's 'Angel Echoes', now the favour is repayed as Kieran Hebden overhauls Hopkins' 'Vessel', bringing a deep and organic backbeat to the luscious neo-classical tendencies of the original. As is in-keeping with Four Tet's recent output there's a certain, clubby swing to the drums that proves mightily addictive over the course of this production's seven-minutes. Offering a more compressed, explicitly electronic sound, Nathan Fake shows up with all synths blazing for his remix of 'Wire' on the B-side. It's another quality turn, crammed with squashed beats, detuning pads and eventually, a hooky, predatory bassline.
