Kaidi Tatham (also known as Agent K) is a member of the Bugz in the Attic collective, keys player for The Herbaliser Band on stage and involved in many projects, most notably his collaborations with 4hero’s Dennis McFarlane: 2000Black, DKD (with Daz-I-Kue), Silhouette Brown and Da One Away (with Ian Grant aka IG Culture).
Having already begun the year with his full-length album release through First Word Records (click here to read our review), Kaidi has gone back to his 2000Black family to release a stunningly crafted 4 track EP. Kaidi perfectly blends challenging instrument experimentation with enough soulful rhythm to work on the dancefloor. The third track titled; ‘Is Crimbo really here’ is an exciting showcase of that, with a steady build of elements marrying amazingly well throughout the track. Resonating shakers, soft kicks, and harmonious piano chords provide the backdrop for Kaidi’s piano skills to take shape and lead midway through the track. Another stand out track, which almost feels like two, is titled; ‘But you bring it up’. Blessing the track with her gorgeous vocals is Nadine Charles, who’s voice keeps up with the change of pace, in a manner which radiates and lifts the song to flow with the vibrating, frequent percussion and piano melodies.
