The only known child of the slain dark wizard Voldemort, Tina was asked by a mysterious disembodied voice to redeem her father’s black legacy by travelling back in time and preventing JFK’s assassination. As an avid reader of political science journals and philosophy, she realized that destiny is not something we can lightly thrust aside. She decided instead to travel to 2013, the Year of the Black Snake, and serve her nobler, predetermined cause ­— writing opinions and news at the Gauntlet.

On Beautiful Rewind, Four Tet’s latest LP, electronic artist Kieran Hebden lifts sounds from the United Kingdom’s bygone underground dance-music scene and appropriates them to fit his signature sound.
