This new one from Burial and Four Tet just popped up out of nowhere, although, strangely, I’d been listening to the Four Tet album all night… Coincidence? I think not. Don’t tell me I don’t make things happen.
It’s a dangerous thing to expect things to be great simply based on past performances, but with Burial and Four Tet we always do, and we’re always proved right. “Nova” is predictably far and beyond any sort of normal talent – mixing all the heart of Four Tet and all the precision of Burial into five breathtaking minutes of next-level-ism. The only people who could surpass them is themselves, and they almost certainly will.
