V4YS Album Review - Bonobo - Black Sands Remixed (Ninja Tune)

Beautifully blending his producer's unique downtempo universe with shades of UK bass music and hints of nu-soul, Bonobo's fourth LP Black sands received a much deserved praise in 2010 following its release on Ninja Tune.

24 months later the always prescient label revisits this reference record with a remixed version gathering some of the electronic music scene's most groundbreaking producers.
Floating Points, Machinedrum, Mark Pritchard, FaltyDL, just to name a few, offer us their interpretations of the original LP with a particular emphasis on the single Eyesdown which revealed at the time singer Andreya Triana.

Dubstep, house, broken and abstract beats, the spectrum of styles present in this remixed edition is wide and not only is a remarkable extension of Bonobo's work but also a perfect snapshot of some of the most innovating parts of the current electro world.

Below a couple of short extracts from Ninja Tune, Eyesdown by DELS and and Eyesdown remixed by Machinedrum :
