Product Details
Kieran Hebden (Four Tet) and Steve Reid (Steve Reid Ensemble) return with NYC, recorded over two days in February 2008 at Avatar Studios. The duo's impressionistic take on their New York surroundings comes out in a language that's got increasingly developed as the two build up their history. NYC fuses the digital slash-and-staple of sampling and the irresistible momentum of jazz drumming, all without ever forgetting that there's such a place as the dancefloor. Kieran and Steve are onto their fourth album together in three years, and is their most focused yet.

"Steve wanted to do something with the sound and feel of his home city," explains Kieran. The whole set, down to the choice of tracks and their sequencing, was influenced by New York City's (in)famous energies. "NYC is where giants walked the streets, the greatest musicians in the world could be heard on any given night; James Brown, Coltrane, Hendricks, Dylan, Sarah Vaughn and on and on. New York City is always in the rhythms" adds Steve.
