Lots to catch up with. Let's start. It's hard to be caught out wrong when praising a Bonobo release. Ever since his first productions, back in the early 2000's, Simon Green has established himself as a cornerstone of the lo-fi/electronica world. His albums are exquisite sound forays, where organic instruments melt into fascinating sampling backbones.
Over the years he's also been increasingly incorporating guests vocalists and musicians to the mix, adding an ultimate layer of smoothness and exoticism to his overall work. This time around, Rhye singer or Australian producer Chet Faker (aka Nick Murphy) join the party alongside a few others.
While maybe not reaching the heights of Blacksands (still my personal favorite record to date by Simon, from 2010), Migration is nevertheless getting close to it. So relax, and immerse yourself into this new exquisite journey.
