Keiran Hebden is a producer and DJ who is not afraid to stick his neck out and do something different. His music has a depth and complexity that certainly belies his 26 years. He is best known for working under his Four Tet moniker – under which he has remixed Aphex Twin, supported Radiohead on Tour and released four artist albums. The media were quick to label him with the ‘folktronica’ tag, but in reality his sound is much more diverse than that, and every album is distinctively different from the last.
Kieran’s choice of musicians to collaborate with is certainly outside the status quo. He has now produced three albums with veteran percussionist Steve Reid, and the pair have performed several live improvisational shows together. He recently went to Brazil and hooked up with a choir, who then came back to the UK with him to perform several gigs. Less well known, perhaps, is that he began his music career as part of a band called Fridge. He still plays with the band, and they have recently released their first album in six years. Kieran looks after The End’s lounge for Border Community – his leftfield electronica sitting perfectly with the James Holden’s forward thinking impossible-to-categorise label.
