Stream & Download Bonobo’s Impressive Sixth Album ‘Migration’

Bonobo Migration

Bonobo’s highly-anticipated sixth studio album Migration is here and it's his most ambitious body of work to date. The project's momentum has built overtime with his previously-released singles, "Kerala", "Break Apart" feat. Rhye and "No Reason" feat. Nick Murphy (Chet Faker), which we loved.

The LP's title is a reference to him working on much of this album on the road while touring where he'd take influences from the diverse set of collaborators and his travels. Migration blends several musical styles from many parts of the world into one cohesive piece. Not only did Simon Green (Bonobo) spend time everywhere from the wilderness to the mountains to the desert to gain inspiration, he also included samples recorded from around the world. This includes  "an elevator in Hong Kong airport, rain in Seattle, a tumble dryer in Atlanta and a fan boat engine in New Orleans into his intricate sonics,” according to his press release.

Bonobo blends just about every type of music on this incredibly diverse LP. He also shows his expert ability to build lush soundscapes and textures atop one another from start to finish. Migration taps all sorts of moods that would be enjoyable chilling on the couch or in a DJ set.

The collaborators bring a unique quality to the release as well. Nick Murphy and Rhye deliver soulful appearances while Hundred Waters’ vocalist Nicole Miglis brings a distinct indie sound to "Surface". Innov Gnawa gives off a worldly vibe with his tribal chanting vocals on "Bambro Koyo". Bonobo masterfully blends atmospheric sound designs with house tempos, as well as layers of live instrumentation that are combined with electronic production. 

It's always impressive to see artists continually evolve and expand their talents throughout their career. We're excited to join Bonobo for the journey as he releases some of his strongest work to date with Migration. Enjoy!

Stream & Download The xx’s Third Studio Album ‘I See You’

The xx I see you

The xx are back with the highly anticipated release of their third studio album, I See You. This latest release is the follow-up to their incredible Coexist LP in 2012.

After years of staying quiet, the UK trio returned in a big way with their amazing lead single "Hold On" which brought a much bigger presence from Jaime xx than we’d previously heard from the group. They followed that up with "Say Something Loving" which had a more familiar xx sound with gentle instrumentation and duet-styled vocal performances from Rome and Oliver.

Now the project is available in full and builds on the sound we last heard from The xx, delivering a wider range of styles than their previous releases. Following Coexist, Jamie xx went out on his own to share an incredible solo album called In Colour where he showcased his uncanny sampling and production abilities. Now they’ve incorporated more of Jaime’s dance-driven tendencies into some of the tracks on I See You.

While a few of the tracks carry a higher level of energy, others deliver the gentle, minimal instrumentation that’s made up their signature sound we all know. Stream I See You in full below and enjoy!

Anderson .Paak had an insane year in 2016.

Now .Paak has some more big news for us...he and his touring band / collaborators The Free Nationals have an album coming out this year.
