Who Sampled What: Four Tet / Bobby Powell
British musician Kieran Hebden (aka Four Tet) is a wizard with samples, his golden touch frequently utilized for jaw-dropping official remixes for everyone from Coldplay to Eluvium, Radiohead to Nathan Fake. This new bootleg flip was a mysterious dancefloor smash this past Summer, sneaking into DJ sets from his close circle of talented musician/DJ friends (Jamie xx and Floating Points, included) prompting a fair share of “track ID?” comments. Recently unveiled and credited to his rarely-used moniker KH, the infectious and funky jam’s undeniable groove is based around a sped-up 16-second clip off “Question,” a 1971 b-side single from Baton Rouge soul musician Bobby Powell.
