Beat This: Four Tet

A Twitter-shaped short story, Google's new Nest, Four Tet's "Thriller" and more in our weekly look at the web

The brainchild of legendary East London grime photographers Tim and Barry, the Beat This series on their remarkable network, Don’t Watch That TV, challenges top electronic music producers to create a track in under 10 minutes. Each episode shows how artists like Toddla T, Manny from Teklife, Melo-X and more make a beat from start to finish, with the camera capturing emphatic head nodding, various computer programs and personal techniques. This week they checked in with Kieran Hebden—aka Four Tet—whose finished product was created solely with samples from Thriller.
