Bonobo Migration (Ninja Tune)

The astronomical success of 2013’s The North Borders brings too much anticipation to Bonobo’s new album, Migration. He returns with the unexpected. Migration is primarily vocal-free, with much of it awash in quiet atmospheric textures. There is the occasional organic injection, such as the Middle Eastern elements cushioned in the soundscapes of “Ontario,” or breakbeats, such as on the hyper “Outlier.” And when Nick Murphy, fka Chet Faker, dusts his magic over the pretty “No Reason,” it is enchanting.

Watch the official video for “No Reason” via The Creators Project.
