“Don’t Rush The Process” is Kaidi Tatham’s 4th solo album under his own name. To bring you up to speed, Kaidi Tatham is a legendary multi-instrumentalist born in the Midlands and based in Belfast. Once dubbed “the UK’s Herbie Hancock” by Benji B, he’s a virtuoso on the keys and a true innovator in sound production as one of the original creators of the Broken Beat sound.

His new album opens with an intro of sweet strings on “Mystery Solved”, ahead of lead title track, which is on a mid-tempo boom bap vibe, before switching to a more uptempo boogie vein, with the assistance of The Easy Access Orchestra, who also appear on “We Chillin’ Out”, which is on a similar boogie tip. “All I Need” is some gospel flavoured hip hop, whilst “Knocknee Donkey” steps things up in a jazz-funk fashion. The second half of the album takes on a very Brazilian flavoured stance, with a set of delicious latin flavoured grooves on “Any Flavour”, “Runnin’ Tru”, “What A Dream” and “Sooretama”, the latter featuring the additional prowess of pianist Robert Mitchell. There’s a touch more of the hip hop beats thrown in via “Funky Fool”and the album closes out in inimitable Kaidi style with a short message: “Mind Yourself”.
