Four Tet aka Kieran Hebden

If you do something long enough, you end up getting pretty good at it. This applies to Four Tet, aka Kieran Hebden, a DJ, who started plying his trade back in the early 2000’s. After a half-dozen albums, Hebden has finally arrived, perhaps not quite in the mainstream, but definitely in that space before stardom I call music purgatory. With a keenly anticipated album in the works, Hebden is playing his “strange, gentle UK garage pastorales and jazzy kora-core” to somewhere between 18,000 and 20,000 people over two nights at the Alexandra Palace. That’s quite a crowd for a guy making instrumental garage soundscapes.
