I'm not quite sure how I missed this but I get a late pass on this (early 2013). I'm not Four Tet's biggest fan, I like a few of his productions (Pinnacles, Pyramid, Locked On), but don't avidly check his stuff. However I do know he's been collecting out there records since his teens and here he is showing off some of his wonderful collection - unlike his regular DJ sets this is him pushing the boat out, having a stretch and flexing some muscle. Not quite an entertaining a watch as Thomas Bullocks' Mezcal party on Just Jam, but the music is where it's at. Watch out for the Lata Ramasar, reissue coming soon on the wonderful Invisible City Editions. Sick, sick, SICK jams dude....
