Well excuse me, but Bonobo and Jordan Rakei were a match made in heaven. Pulsating beat and the whole Detroit vibe with a touch of Rakei's soulful vocal is the combination I didn't know I needed. This is again a slightly different darker Bonobo than I know, but I am all in for it.

'Shadows' was one of the first pieces in place for the new record and working with Jordan was such a joy. We’d spent plenty of time together previously. He’s toured with us and I’m a huge fans of his. He was an easy choice as a collaborator. The instrumental existed as a slow evolving throwback Detroit thing. I had people like Theo Parish and Moodyman in mind when I was making it. It’s been one of my favourites from the new album since day one."
