The Elliott School in Wandsworth has recently been under the media spotlight due to it's reputation as a leftfield electronic artist production line. Members of the Maccabees, The XX, Hot Chip,, Kieran Hebdon of Four Tet and Burial are all notable alumni. Rumour has it that the Brits School chucks its old equipment over to Elliot School, which is rather ironic as the last piece of talent that the Brit School produced was last seen hosting the Bulgarian lottery (the Brit Schools factory line seeming to consist of jarring, "I drink tea" style wannabe diva's with grating vocals).

There has been talk of a collaboration between Burial and Four Tet for some time, with eager bloggers swapping stories and old remixes they totally swear was made by Will Bevan for an underground label that once may have been run by Hebdon, or whatever. Finally some concrete pieces of music have surfaced, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that it's stuff like this that keeps my faith in British Electronic music. I hope to hear this dropped in a set at some point over Summer 2010.
