A few weeks after dropping "ATK", Bonobo shares yet another mesmerizing electronic fairy tale, a piece of whatever next he's having in store for us. To be honest, the news of the single came out of the blue for me. I randomly saw the announcement on Ninja Tune's Twitter and rushed to open WordPress and share this.
I am utterly impressed - it seems his LP Fragments and the ongoing world tour are not depleting his creative energy.
It won't take much time before you realize you're in Bonobo's territory. "Defender" kicks off with a dope tribal percussion pattern and chants before it slowly belts out and evolves into a powerful and almighty electronica-progressive masterpiece. I just love how smoothly he layers instrument after instrument in his music. In this way, listeners can carefully get to know all the small details that comprise the composition.
This will make you miss the dancefloor. 6 minutes and 14 seconds of pure bliss. "Defender" is the ultimate transcendental electronic experience.
Both “ATK” and “Defender” will be released on a hand stamped and numbered white label limited to 1500 units.
