You can get a lot done in four-and-a-half hours. Drive from York's National Railway Museum to Cheddar Gorge caves, build a basic flatpack wardrobe, or for lorry drivers in EU countries, you can expect to take a 45 minute break after driving for that long. That all said, if you're Four Tet of course, in four-and-a-half hours you can take a bunch of Los Angeles residents on a fantastical adventure across noodling jazz, delicate ambient, full-bodied funk, percussive workouts, and even some Young Thug. Which is exactly what he did on the October 28, at Far Away in LA. The results of which you can hear below.
It's a classic Four Tet set, in that it abides to absolutely no form or obvious direction, opting instead to surf wildly between house, hip-hop and straight up psychedelia. It's also a total joy. Sadly the recording cut out towards the end of his set, missing the last hour-and-a-half, but hey you're still getting 270 minutes so what're you complaining about really?
