Deservingly hailed as "one of the 21st-century's finest electronic musicians" by the likes of Pitchfork, Four Tet's talent has seen him collaborate with the likes of Thom Yorke, Burial and even Rihanna.

Kieran Hebden (Four Tet) started his serious musical career at 15, when Fridge, the band he formed with classmates, signed a recording contract. Two years later, in 1997, he started his solo career. The following year, in 1998, he began using his stage name Four Tet, releasing a 36-minute, 25-second single called 'Thirtysixtwentyfive'. Just a few years later, in 2003, Four Tet opened for Radiohead during their European tour.

Since then, Four Tet's released nine albums (including There is Love in You, Morning/Evening and Energy), remixed songs for the likes of Radiohead, Ellie Goulding, Sia, Andrew Bird, Block Party, Bonobo, Black Sabbath and The xx. His remix of The xx's 'Violent Noise' gained Four Tet a Grammy Award nomination for Best Remixed Recording, Production, Non-Classical.

Four Tet will be performing for one night in Auckland as part of the Auckland Arts Festival.
