October 6th, the day Bonobo released "Rosewood" and the full track list of his upcoming Fragments. The day excitement started piling up.
I literally ran to my laptop in order to share with you the big news of the day "Otomo". Bonobo and collaborator O'Flynn are using a sample of the Bulgarian choir 100 Kaba-Gaidi (fuck yeah!) and I couldn't be prouder. Whatever this genre is, I am in love.
Also, O'Flynn, ftw! He's been on my list ever since we featured "Talia" earlier this year. If this is the first time you hear his name, I highly recommend his debut album Alethia.
"Otomo" is blending UK breakbeat / bass rhythm structures with the mystic bagpipes and mood-wise swings between late night rave and chill electronica. The much needed power-up we all need on this Wednesday evening. I am seriously ready for some abandoned building middle of the night dance experiences. Been a minute, sadly.
Fragments will be released January 14, 2022 via Ninja Tune, along with a 2022 world tour. Here's the full tracklist confirmed:
- Polyghost ft. Miguel Atwood-Ferguson
- Shadows ft. Jordan Rakei
- Otomo ft. O’Flynn
- Tides ft. Jamila Woods
- Age of Phase
- From You ft. Joji
- Day by Day ft. Kadhja Bonet
