About this item

Bonobo is an artist who explores elements of instrumental hip-hop, electronica and ambient with live instrumentation and enjoys an illustrious career with a sea of collaborators ranging from Erykah Badu and Andreya Triana to Rhye and Nick Murphy.

His highly textural aesthetic translates into an ethos that looks to introduce a more open musical palette without losing sight of its past. His mix supports 10 exclusives or unreleased tracks, including 2 from himself and another from his rare pop-up alias Barakas. Employing the multi-instrumental arrangements of his own work in this 74 minutes of house, techno, electronica and breakbeat, each track exudes character and allows animated melodies to wander and develop, all the while grounded by an acute sense of harmonic progression and rhythmic precision.

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: There's no denying that Bonobo has been at the forefront of electronic music production for the best part of two decades now, and this superb suite of influences shows exactly where it all came from. Featuring a diverse range of artists and genres, it becomes clear where the mix of instrumental hip-hop, trad. electronica and downbeat meet in the euphoric middle-ground Bonobo treads. A superb compilation on it's own merits and a fascinating timeline of Bonobo's considerable influences.
