Baby Ford & The Ifach Collective: “Tea Party” (Sacred Machine, Klang 2001)

At the peak of my fascination with minimal techno, Baby Ford’s ultra reduced tracks eluded me — I preferred the nostalgia of his earlier stuff but couldn’t find my way into some of these more austere, minimal workouts. This particular track resides somewhere in the middle and was done with the Ifach Collective, a group of collaborators that included Eon, Mark Broom, and Thomas Melchior. Of all of the tracks on Sacred Machine, it’s perhaps the most irresistible.
