ATL to London: Rome Fortune & Four Tet - "One Time For" (Soundcloud Bootleg)




I'm about 98% sure that I first stumbled upon Kieran Hebden (aka Four Tet) during my early exploration of Jaylib-era J Dilla; the late great rapper-producer concocted a neck-snapping remix of Hebden's own "As Serious As Your Life" (2003) along with fellow Detroit emcee Guilty Simpson. While he's primarily regarded as a one-man band, Four Tet has branched out in recent years working with drummer Steve Reid, MADVILLAIN, Neneh Cherry, Syrian wedding singer Omar Souleyman, and has produced unofficial remixes for everyone from Lana del Rey to Justin Timberlake. Four Tet unleashed his latest foray into Hip-Hop late Tuesday afternoon; "One Time For" is one of two tracks recently recorded with rising Atlanta emcee Rome Fortune. Even though it may still be a little rough around the edges, "One Time For" is an extremely glitched out, drum-heavy Electronic Hip-Hop hybrid, which could very well be the start of a great collaborative effort. "For me, the existence of Twitter... has had a massive, massive impact on what's possible for me. On Twitter I chat with everybody from Rome Fortune to Ellie Goulding or Lorde, and they get back to me," Four Tet recently lamented to BBC Radio 1 personality Benji B. Rome Fortune most recently unleashed the long-awaited follow-up to his Beautiful Pimp mixtape, Beautiful Pimp II, back in February in conjunction with The FADER, while Four Tet unveiled a 15-track collection of previously unreleased material to commemorate his monumental 100,000th Twitter follower. It's largely unclear as to where "One Time For" and it's as-yet-to-be-released companion track will eventually end up re-surfacing.
