Agent K Feed the Cat
- Words: Martin Turenne
- Label: Giant Step
As New Forms was to drum & bass in 1997, so Feed The Cat is to broken beat in 2003. Like Roni Size, West London's Kaidi Tatham (a.k.a. Agent K) is his scene's most classically minded head, a producer whose album wears its fusion-jazz influence proudly on its sleeve. Tatham's sultry LP (first released last year in England) delivers handsomely on the promise of its singles, as the boardsman drips cascading keys and honeyed vocal refrains over a bed of prickly polyrhythmic tines. Indeed, dancing to these tunes is like sleeping on a bed of nails-tricky and euphoric all at once.
