Now Four Tet has turned in a mint remix of Rihanna’s ‘Kiss It Better’

Yesterday, the internet lost its mind over Kaytranada’s remix of Kiss It Better off Rihanna’s ANTI, and now overnight two remix EPs for the singles Needed Me and Kiss It Better have appeared on TIDAL, as Pitchfork picked up.

The Needed Me EP features remixes by big-room and trap names like R3hab, W&W and Salva, while Kaytranada’s Kiss It Better edit is joined by reworks from R3hab, Melbourne house pair Feenixpawl and a left-field take by English auteur Four Tet.

Kaytranada’s remix goes for low-slung funk, but Four Tet strips things back to Rihanna’s vocals, glockenspiel and thrumming bass – you can hear it below via YouTube (before it’s taken down), or listen to snippets from both remix EPs below that (and if you’re a TIDAL member, you can listen to both EPs in full over at Hova’s streaming site).
