With rumors of a new album in 2016 setting the internet alight, electronic powerhouse Bonobo drops a treat for fans in the shape of an exclusive, deluxe physical edition of a much-loved remix. Featured regularly in the fired-up DJ sets he’s been playing across the globe, Bonobo’s take on French jazz legend Henri Texier’s ‘Les La-Bas’ is jazz-tinged house at its most compulsive. The track will be made available for the first time for Record Store Day 2016, in a beautiful heavyweight 12” edition designed by Grammy-Nominated artist Leif Podhajsky, and featuring a pattern created by raised varnish studs. The b-side features Texier’s original track, first released by the double-bass virtuoso and Don Cherry collaborator in 1977.

I had the privilege to see Four Tet live in Amsterdam around 2018. I must have missed this album, because it was missing in the other 8 albums I already have. And what a find. Sometimes Four Tet needs some time to appreciate, but this album is very open and friendly. PlayItLoud!
