Dan Snaith of Caribou and Kieran Hebden of Four Tet have announced plans for a duel 12” to come out on Hebden’s Text Records imprint, as well a show in Berlin this Friday at which the pair will go back to back in a unique night of music at the club Horst Krzbrg.
The split 12” sees Hebden and Snaith taking a side each to create two tracks of wonderful melody, and dance-floor goodness. Both tracks are immaculately crafted (would you expect anything less?) and are directed straight at the dance-floor. No messing around.
Snaith adopts a new alias, Daphni, to create ‘Ye Ye’ which compared to Caribou’s album Swim is a little simpler in production, but just as impressive as any of the tracks on the album. Hebden’s track called ‘Pinnacles’ has its feet firmly in both house and disco, layered with pianos, synths and an infectious beat.
We have two preview streams of the tracks; ‘Pinnacles’ is a rip from the Gilles Peterson BBC Radio One show and ‘Ye Ye’ is via Snaith’s Soundcloud page.
You can catch Caribou’s Dan Snaith and Four Tet’s Kieron Hebden go back to back to back this Friday at Horst Kruezberg. The split 12” will be on the way later this year.
