Kieran Hebdens contribution to our renowned series of compilations redefines the word "eclectic. From sun-kissed 60s psychedelia (Manfred Mann, would you believe?) to cosmic jazz, to skull-crunchin hip-hop (Gravediggaz) and Terry Rileys tape-loop cut-ups, seriously entertaining and even educational take on the chillout comp - as well as a peek at the myriad influences that are at work in Hebdens own music as Four Tet.
Highlights include Icarus digital jazz deconstructions, the indescribable beauties of Linda Perlhacs Parallelograms and Koushiks woozy funk workouts.
All in all, a rare treat composed of, er, rare treats. Thoroughly recommended. Also includes an exclusive cover version of the Jimi Hendrix "Castles Made Of Sand"
