This week I’ve really been on a Bonobo kick. I love the soft electronic style. The interesting sounds and beats combine into something that is great to work to – uplifting and moving but without really being in your face. According to the internets, his style could be classified as lounge, ambient or cinematic, but regardless there is something that really hooks me in it. I think it’s the layered sounds and solid bassline. I’m a sucker for a baseline.
The album I’ve been playing on repeat (over and over) this week is Black Sands. I think my favourite song on it is The Keeper:
Bonobo has a new album due out at the beginning of April and I’m excited. You can check out the details, and the (amazing!) music video for the single, Cirrus, at the website here: http://www.bonobomusic.com/
