Due out next month on Ninja Tune, the compilation features new remixes from Cosmin TRG, Mark Pritchard, Machinedrum and more.
Bonobo has been making downtempo records for over a decade (and DJing for even longer), but his biggest breakthrough arguably came in 2010 when he released Black Sands, his most widely praised record so far. As the BBC put it: "There was little in Bonobo's first two albums... to suggest that Simon Green could ever craft anything as grand, expansive and accomplished as Black Sands." Black Sands Remixed collects reworks of tracks from the album by a cast of bass-oriented producers, from Mark Pritchard to Floating Points and Cosmin TRG. Most of the tracks included are previously unreleased. For a taste of the album, head to Bonobo's homepage, where you can hear three of the tracks and download Machinedrum's remix of "Eyesdown" in exchange for your email address.
