The events are billed as Four Tet + Friends, suggesting that special guests will appear at the three shows. They will take place from 8pm-2am on October 6 and 7, and 9pm-4am on October 8.

Earlier this month, Four Tet – aka Kieran Hebden – launched legal action against his label Domino, claiming damages for a historic royalty rate applied to downloads and streaming revenue of his music first released in the noughties. The artist is alleging a breach of contract over the label’s royalty rate of 18 per cent.

Domino has rejected Hebden’s claims in a defence document and the case will now be tried by a judge at the Business and Property Courts of the High Court of Justice.

Meanwhile, Four Tet released two new albums ‘Parallel’ and ‘871’ on Christmas Day last year, only announcing them hours before their arrival. In January, he followed them with a part-collaborative record with Madlib called ‘Sound Ancestors’.

Of his work on the latter record, Hebden explained: “We decided to work on this together with him sending me tracks, loops, ideas and experiments that I would arrange, edit, manipulate and combine. I was sent hundreds of pieces of music over a couple of years stretch and during that time I put together this album with all the parts that fitted with my vision.”
