Martyn and Four Tet Share New Collaborative Track
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Martyn (pictured above) and Four Tet have shared a full stream of "Glassbeadgames (8 Hours at Fabric Dub)," a new version of a collaborative track set to be included on the former producer's forthcoming LP for Ninja Tune. The resulting eight-minute production is as rich as one might expect when two producers of this caliber combine their efforts, balancing both artist's styles well, with the familiar loose percussion and gentle thumb piano melodies of Four Tet melding together with Martyn's penchant for fortified low-end and solid sonic constructions.
While the original version of the pair's "Glassbeadgames" track is set to appear on Martyn's The Air Between Words LP when it drops on June 16, this "8 Hours at Fabric Dub" version of the tune will see a release on Martyn's forthcoming Forgiveness EP, which will also see a release via Ninja Tune on June 3. In the meantime, "Glassbeadgames (8 Hours at Fabric Dub)" can be streamed in full below.
