Ba Teaches Yoga
Label: Text Records
Continuing in the vein of 2012's Pink, Beautiful Rewind keeps its feet firmly planted on the dancefloor. Well, the dancefloor of the mind, anyway: Cuts like the shuddering "Parallel Jalebi" are focused squarely on the frontal lobe, and the ecstatic "Your Body Feels" is tailor-made for levitation. But "Kool FM," a tribute to London pirate radio, makes explicit the way that Four Tet situates his music within the history of underground U.K. club music, right down to the MC chatter and cut-up breakbeats.
