TDM // MONDAY JULY 1
From his pioneering work with avant-garde band Tortoise to his stunning albums Everything Ecstatic, Pause and Rounds, Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet has consistently delivered some the finest alternative electronic music of the last decade. Variously delving into post-folk, trip-hop, broken beat and alternative house, Hebden doesn’t fit comfortably in any particular genre pigeon hole, and his richly layered compositions are all the better for it. A passionate advocate of quality dance music in all its forms, Four Tet DJ sets are as eclectic and carefully crafted as you’d expect, with deep house, techno, garage and experimental tones all tied together seamlessly. Moving away from the languid instrumental hip hop breaks that made his name in recent years and more firmly onto the dancefloor, Four Tet is one of the leaders of the dance music scene these days.
