Track Of The Week: QRTR Selects A Transcendent Four Tet Remix

This week’s Track of the Week comes from none other than .WAVCAVE cofounder Meagan Rodriguez, aka QRTR. Her music has been described as an amalgam of “art house film composer and basement rave,” seamlessly navigating a full spectrum of sounds and themes through mesmeric sound design and a masterful command of sonic energy.
Fresh off a fully booked Miami Music Week and the release of her Snowfall EP on Walker & Royce’s Rules Don’t Apply Records, QRTR picks Jamie xx’s “SeeSaw (Four Tet Club Version).” Kieran Hebden, better known in dance music circles as Four Tet, has a long career living on the fringe of Dance music, blurring genre lines and garnering praise from some of music’s most progressive thinkers since the early 2000s.
“When I used to throw .WAVCAVE parties in Brooklyn years ago, I would often close out the night,” QRTR recalls. “The fog engulfed the basement space we used to occupy, strobes of light cutting through to reveal silhouettes of dancing bodies going strong in the hours of the early morning.
“On more than one occasion, I sent everyone off in a euphoric haze with this club version of ‘SeeSaw.’ If I find myself playing the final set of the night, I’ll drop this track right before the house lights come on to allow myself a sweet nostalgic moment and remember why I started this journey in the first place.”
One listen to this transcendent remix, and you might find yourself in that nostalgic moment as well.
