The Keyser Soze of cool grooves

"Everything is Alright by Four Tet
Four Tet can normally be heard chopping acoustic samples into beautiful and complex arrangements, but of all Kieron Hebden’s laptop born arrangements this one is the simplest. The groove is there before the acoustic guitar comes in, it arrives, the plinky synth devlops it and then poof, it’s gone. Like the Keyser Soze of cool grooves, but with less manipulation and murder and more head bopping."
