Check This: Bonobo and Nick Murphy (fka Chet Faker): No Reason

Very very nice way to get me through hump day! Bonobo launched just a few hours ago a new single from his upcoming album Migration. The new track, No Reason, features swoon-worthy vocals from one of my favorite Aussies Nick Murphy (fka Chet Faker). This new song was not quite a surprise since they also dropped a 2-hour (!!!) mix together a few months ago – a good way to hint that there will be more things to expect from this collaboration.

No Reason is a 7-minute long dreamy and ethereal track, with its whole vibe altering between dark ambient and deep, minimalist electro. What I like about it is the fact that it was able to holistically marry Bonobo’s signature ambient/downtempo beats and percussions with Murphy’s cool, soulful musical style.

Migration will be out this Friday. I’ll definitely get my copy. In the meantime, you can listen to No Reason here:

 

Minimix 06 – City (E)scapes

Super thankful for this long weekend – perfect timing before I drown myself back to working student duties. Unfortunately, I’ll be staying in the Q-C for the next 3 days. Couldn’t escape the city because it’s insanely traffic just going out of the village. I’d rather use this time polishing up on my mixing chenes.

Here’s my 6th attempt, featuring:

  1. Duke Dumont: I Got You (Bondax Remix)
  2. Alaia and Gallo, Kevin Heart: Who is He
  3. Marcus Marr and Chet Faker: Birthday Card
  4. Lovebirds: Mandrill
  5. Disclosure: January (feat. Jamie Woon)
