FourTet aka Kieran Hebden is the latest addition to an extensive catalog of DJ Kicks records (officially No. 26 in the Series). In Hebden's installment he features some big names in Madvillian, Stereolab, Showbiz & A.G., Animal Collective and Curtis Mayfield among others.

I wouldn't say that the record is one seemless piece as the tracks rarely mix into one another smoothly the transitions on other DJ Kicks albums have been better, but that shouldn't discourage you from listening. This is a great record from a DJ who definately understands a good hip hop beat with having a knack for creating great rythms.

This is also probably one of his most accessible records as typically Four Tet's stuff goes in a dozen different directions keeping no consistant sound for long. Regardless of the method he chooses check out the new track that appears on the record called "Pockets" for yourself thanks to the blog Swoon.

According to Swoon "Pockets" may be the only new Four Tet material thats going to come out this year. Pockets is also going to be available on a 12″ single (via eMusic) with a different version on the b-side. There will also be a triple vinyl unmixed version of the compilation as well so look for that.

Four Tet is awesome. From his work in Fridge as well as his solo stuff, there is no doubt this guy has eclectic tastes. Everything Ecstatic and Rounds are just great.

From Pitchfork:"When you listen to Kieran Hebden's music, you know he's coming from a dozen different places at once."

K = Mark Richardson?

Nordy, I wish I could write like that.

I am pretty sure I got that "dozen different places" idea planted in my head from that very Mr. Richardson review.

I don't think you need to worry about your writing. Aren't you the one who just turned in a 100-plus page master's thesis? I'm guessing Mr. Richardson has never done that.
