Madlib and Four Tet have shared their latest collaborative joint “Hopprock,” set to appear on the pair’s forthcoming album Sound Ancestors.

Clocking in at approximately three-and-a-half minutes, their newest single opens with deep strings, chimes and a rainstick reminiscent of Four Tet’s style. The tranquil climate is disrupted shortly after with Madlib’s recording machine sample and sharp hi-hats and drum beat, creating a hypnotizing track from the two.

“Hopprock” follows Four Tet and Madlib’s “Road of the Lonely Ones” from December 2020. Sound Ancestors is yet to receive an exact release date, but the IDM pioneer previously revealed that the album has been in the works for a few years now. “He is always making loads of music in all sorts of styles and I was listening to some of his new beats and studio sessions when I had the idea that it would be great to hear some of these ideas made into a Madlib solo album. Not made into beats for vocalists to use but instead arranged into tracks that could all flow together in an album designed to be listened to start to finish,” Four Tet explained. “I put this concept to him when we were hanging out eating some nice food one day and 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.”

Stream Madlib and Four Tet’s “Hopprock” on Spotify and Apple Music.
