Bonobo has always been one of my go to artists for “late night chill out” music that stands out among the massive amount of bland, forgettable stuff that exists in that genre. And while this new track, “Duals,” doesn’t exactly disappoint, it’s not nearly as compelling or as interesting as the material from his 2013 album “The North Borders.” Still, with its smooth, rather simple arrangements, it is a great track to put on late at night when you’re in the mood for something chill, but just a little bit funky and hypnotic.
I’m always on the lookout for awesome remixes and just happened to stumble upon these 2 gems: Hayden James’ remix of Rufus’ “Sundream” and Bonobo’s remix of London Grammar’s “Hey Now.” Perfect if you like chill beats.
