Throughout the course of his career, the UK DJ Kieran Hebden, who performs under the moniker Four Tet, has been an adventurous gatherer of sounds, and as a result his albums are like sonic scrapbooks or collages. And whether he’s collaborating with dubstep producer Burial, improvising with the venerable jazz drummer Steve Reid or the psych group Sunburned Hand of the Man, or remixing everyone from Beth Orton to Black Sabbath, there’s always something particular about his songs that make them identifiable -- perhaps it’s his ability to really make the digital sound organic or to infuse a certain heady mood to his work. Either way, Four Tet has managed to amass some loyal fans, and as he made his way to Seattle to perform for them at Chop Suey, he stopped by the KEXP studios for this warm, ambient improv set:
