Four Tet: Morning/Evening

British beat genius digs into his South Asian family roots

Four Tet's music has moved deeper into the dance floor since his folk-tinged 2003 landmark, Rounds, but it hasn't become any less exquisite or psychedelic. His latest, released online sans fanfare, pairs tracks called "Morning" and "Evening" — each the length of an LP side — inspired by his late grandfather's collection of Hindi film soundtracks. Both sample Indian national heroine Lata Mangeshkar, the voice of hundreds of Bollywood musicals, now fluttering amid dancing synth melodies over pillowy bass tones and plush orchestral beds. Club beats pound on "Morning," then dissolve; "Evening" flips and reverses the arc — an invitation to click "repeat" and play it all day.
