Various Artists Solid Steel Presents Bonobo
- Words: Velanche
- Label: Ninja Tune
Listening to Coldcut's venerable radio show is like immersing yourself in an old, homemade mixtape. Bonobo (née Simon Green) does it seemingly raw, from the quirky tunes to the well-placed vocal samples (a Solid Steel hallmark) to the glorious popping sound of the vinyl. Steps ahead of the average mix comp, Bonobo's talent and musical selections are astute, featuring top selections from his own catalog and that of Tru Thoughts compadres like Diesler & Flevans. If you find yourself giggling and dancing in the same breath, no one will blame you...at least I won't.
