Below is the remix Four Tet made for Tinariwen. It is an interpretation of their song featuring TV On The Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone.
Again, this one is a great example how a remix can direct musical attention to a different genre, attitude and world inside music, without being intrusive to the original work. This remix starts out slowly, retaining much of the original instruments and atmosphere, and it progresses into something tribal – still reminding us of the African setting, only placing the listener into a world of something which can be best described with the term ‘manual house’, then slips further into the world of techno. Genius work, really.
