Three years after his hit album Black Sands, Bonobo returns with what fans should feel is a natural progression in terms of electric music evolution. The first track to be unveiled is entitled Cirrus, with the enthusiastic triangle going hand in hand with the jazzy bass lines to make an incredibly catchy and moving tune.
If the album, released on April 1st, produces more tracks of this quality, then Bonobo may have yet again raised the bar for electronic music in the UK. Expect to see more vocal collaborations in Grey Reverend, Erykah Badu, Cornelia and newcomer Szjerdene. North Borders will reportedly go back to the UK roots, with some tracks taking on 2-Step and garage elements.
