Bonobo – Black Sands — 10th Anniversary Edition
To mark the 10th Anniversary of the criticallyacclaimed ‘Black Sands’ – Bonobo aka Simon Green’s celebrated breakthrough record – Ninja Tune are reissuing the album on special edition red vinyl featuring a new version of the iconic cover image taken by Green. Influenced by the divergent, bass-driven strands of the UK electronic music scene at that time, Green artfully fitted those evolving sounds into his own wider vision. The record’s lasting importance stems from the depth that he found in those combinations, rattling two-step rhythms and heavy pressure subbass twinned with carefully crafted songwriting and lush, brightly-realised instrumentation. ‘Black Sands’ has now sold over 400,000 copies worldwide.
