Four Tet stopped by triple j while in Australia this past weekend for the Laneway Festival and debuted no less than an hour’s worth of unreleased material. One of those tracks, his remix of Burn by Ellie Goulding, made its way to the producer’s SoundCloud page shortly thereafter.
Four Tet’s on-the-nose title for the remix tells the whole story: “I got this song Burn stuck in my head so I did a remix and Ellie DMed me and she’s into it.” His mix echoes the idea of an infectious song planting itself in one’s brain, with a reverberating choir of angelic, melodic Ellies bouncing around endlessly on top of minimal, Burial-esque percussion.
Given the bootleg status of this remix, it’s doubtful that we’ll ever see an official release. But hey, maybe it’ll end up on Sendspace sooner or later.
