It’s not long now until we get to hear the full, highly-anticipated collaborative project between Four Tet & Madlib, Sound Ancestors. Today we get another glimpse into the album with the release of “Hopprock,” a calming, three and a half minute minimal jaunt.
“Hopprock” opens with an ambient soundscape, and after hearing a voice recording play through the motion of deleting messages, a heavy kick drum comes in, officially launching this track. Gentle guitar riffs keep this one moving forward. Madlib and Four Tet aren’t doing anything groundbreaking here, but we’re still very much digging it.
Check out the latest preview of the upcoming collab album below. Madlib is listed as the sole artist, but Four Tet is credited as a writer and producer. Stay tuned for Sound Ancestors which is set to drop this month. Enjoy!
