FABRIC PRESENTS: BONOBO (VARIOUS ARTISTS) VINYL (2LP)
Release Date: 22nd February 2019
"Ushering in an exciting new era for the label, nightclub and mix series, Bonobo opens the ‘fabric presents’ series that pledges CD, digital and vinyl releases on a quarterly basis. His highly textural aesthetic translates into an ethos that looks to introduce a more open musical palette without losing sight of its past. Employing the multi-instrumental arrangements of his own work in these 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. 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. The 2LP package features 15 of the 22 tracks from Bonobo’s opening mix for the new fabric presents series. They are the full unmixed versions, including both Bonobo’s exclusive tracks, ‘Ibrik’ and ‘Flicker’, plus his ‘Boston Common’ cut, previously limited to vinyl only."
