It's pretty much a given that a DJ set from Four Tet (a.k.a. Kieran Hebden) is going to be more of an eclectic, cerebral affair rather than a dance floor meltdown. DJ Kicks is his second foray into this realm, after an effectively atmospheric Late Night Tales installment a couple years ago. This mix has a harder edge to it, perhaps reflecting the denser, more percussive textures of Four Tet's recent album Everything Ecstatic. Basically, this is all great stuff, and unless you have a record collection twice as large as Mr. Hebden's, there's plenty of gems for you to discover here. David Behrman... Curtis Mayfield... African mbira... Gong... Madvillain... Autechre... yeah, you get the idea. Cool stuff for cool people. People like you. Buy it.
