Published Jan 06, 2012Back in 2010, forward thinking British downtempo musician Bonobo delivered Black Sands, which we praised for its "perfect divide between, and connection with, live instrumentation and unostentatious beats." Fans of that album will get to hear those songs in a whole new light when a remix collection arrives next month.
Longtime label Ninja Tune will drop Black Sands Remixed on February 13 overseas and February 21 on our shores. The 14-song affair covers a number of Black Sands tracks, with standout "Eyesdown" getting the most attention. As you can see in the tracklisting below, the song has been re-envisioned via remixes from Floating Points, ARP 101 and Machine Drum, and also got a reworking from label mates Andreya Triana and Dels (though it should be noted soul-singer Triana showed up on the original as well). Check out the rest of the info below.
