Bonobo -Circus – Tune Of The Week by @sibonobo

To say that I’m a fan of Bonobo would be an understatement. This is my working music, my running music, my thinking music, my writing music. My music.

Circus is taken off the album ‘North Borders’, the follow up to epic ‘Black Sands‘. After hearing ‘Circus’ for the first time, I immediately placed my pre-order for the album. Bonobo’s Circus follows up where ‘Eyes Down’ left off, but with some more pace in the drum line.

Black Sands boasted an amazing ensemble cast and delivered the phenom that is ‘Eyes Down’ with Andreya Triana on vocals (also one of my Top Ten Songs From 2012). Looking at the colab list for North Borders, this promises to be another amazing album, featuring performances from Szjerdene, Erykah Badu and Grey Reverend.

Album Rating: ★★★★★★★★½☆ 

Genre: Ambient/ Chill
Release Date: March 2010
Favourite tracks: Eyes Down (featuring Andreya Triana); 1009)

The short version:
Different from Bonobo’s previous work in that is not heavily laced with horns and drum fills. A lot more sparse, almost Oriental. Black Sands is a very, very good album.
