Big time Four Tet reissue. Domino have some of the finest vaults around, we're stoked that they are reinvestigating them.

Four Tet returns with four tracks of techno-not-techno. The "Ringer" EP is a 32 minute, four-track excursion into the kind of wide-open spaces you might find if you set out to make techno with an Afro-beat / Krautrock sensibility. Title track "Ringer" locks together gloriously rich synthesizer arpeggios; "Wing Body Wing" slips from crisp clusters of disco percussion to Steve Reich polyrhythms; and in between are another two euphoric ripples of sound; "Ribbons" and "Swimmer". These are tracks that make you think of Berlin – Dakar – Detroit - but they could only have been made in London. All four are headphone epics, but are mixed in such a way you know you have to hear them at Plastic People or The End. "Ringer" carries that minimal pulse over into Four Tet, and while Kieran's trademark recuttings of jazz breaks may be less in evidence, his feel for harmony and melody is, as always, unmistakable.
