Bonobo - Black Sands Remixed (Ninja Tune)
The Ninja Tune mainstay’s return to his 2010 chill-out triumph, Black Sands, traverses a gorgeous selection of ultra-pillowy downtempo. With close to a dozen producers — including Floating Points, Mark Pritchard, Machinedrum, and Mike Slott — trying their hands at remixes, there’s lots of sonic variation to behold. From Banks’ beat-soaked remix of The Keeper to the bugged-out futurism of ARP 101’s glassy rework of Eyesdown. Some new cuts from Bonobo also make it on to the disc, such as the jazz-fused relaxer Brace Brace and elegant groove Ghost Ship. The result? Over 75-minutes of innocuous euphoria.
