That boy, he just don't stop. Fridge pin-up Kieran Hebden continues his alarmingly successful odyssey into sound

at

a rate not seen since that impressive spate of Squarepusher releases in mid-1997, and the good news is that this is by far his most accessible journey. Word on the street was that Kieran had been havin' it with the speed garage set and sure enough, right at the end of 'Calamine''s radio frequency jams, the 21-year-old introduces a new generation to the joys of cocaine hedonism and champagne-fuelled drum'n'bass. Other genres tackled with surefooted ease in 12 minutes include: krautrock, samba, avant-jazz and deep house. Message to Tortoise. Give up now.
