A JOY

Four Tet | RUG213 | Released: 16/10/05

Image: A Joy (part 1)

A churning bass-heavy tune, like a washing machine set to queasy, 'A Joy' is, in its own right, and in the context of the album, a striking opener. Impossible drums skitter across an alien jazz terrain and disappear behind rocks, only to come back bigger and more terrifying. For the vinyl single release however, the bar has been significantly raised. Hebden has created a brand new version of the track using its original frenetic energy as its building blocks, adding vocals from legendary Stones Throw affiliate Percee P, and an infectious, house-tinged hip hop loop to its finale. Available on limited edition 12'' and 3 different 7'' vinyl, 'A Joy' is given the remix treatment across the formats by Percee P's fellow Stones Throw luminary - Koushik, instrumental four-piece Battles, and Four Tet himself - to impressive effect.
