Four Tet and Caribou have been long-time friends and collaborators, as the brilliant photo above can attest, so it was only a matter of time that the Brit would get his mits on one of the Canadian’s tracks from the recent Suddenly.
The track selected for remix treatment is “Never Come Back”, a tropical album highlight that is already primed for dancing, but with Four Tet’s new spin it’s amplified. Enhancing the beat, giving the pianos a new choppiness, and adding some synth scribbles, the remix of “Never Come Back” has turned it into a peak-hour dancefloor packer. Listen below or on your preferred platform.
Speaking about why he asked Four Tet to do the remix, Dan Snaith says:
“Kieran is already part of my music before he remixes it. He spent hours listening to drafts of tracks from Suddenly and giving me feedback, as he has done with my previous albums. I love that when people think of us as musical allies that they are seeing something real and genuine, not music industry artifice. We are the closest friends – so much so that I feel like we are family – and I love that people who listen to our music can feel that. So of course I thought of Kieran as the person to take on remixing “Never Come Back”. Needless to say he has smashed it – creating a warped and beautiful techno banger that, as it’s inclusion in his recent Boiler Room stream showed, will get people dancing whatever the circumstances.“
