In a song that at once prefigures Flocka’s candidacy for a Mad Decent affiliated remix album, the star moment in Elite Gymnastics’ “WΛKΛ” belongs to Pastor Troy, when, four-and-a-half minutes in, “Piano Takes You” envelops his looping “put your hands up” chant. Waka Flocka Jock Jam feels inevitable; 2011 Pastor Troy canonization, maybe less so. For a more melancholy, more wave-wash, just-as-drum-machine Elite Gymnastics, there’s the NEU! ’92 EP (see especially “(I Always Cry At) Regenerations”).
