    Originally released back in 2004 this release has been our most requested for a vinyl re release along with recent re issues of Cinematic Orchestra and MGMT on 180 gram vinyl, Kieran Hebden's 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 Riley's 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 Hebden's own music as Four Tet. Highlights include Icarus' digital jazz deconstructions, the indescribable beauties of Linda Perlhac's Parallelograms and Koushik's 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 classic "Castles Made Of Sand"

    To avoid any confusion from Kieran Hebden the Four Tet mix audio that appeared on the original CD is the very same as the 2004 release, but the separate tracks on the vinyl have been mastered individually to suit vinyl
