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:
