Song of the day – 100: Bonobo feat. Andreya Triana

The above photograph is of Andreya Triana, the singer on this most excellent and soulful slice of what they used to call trip-hop but probably has some other crap name these days like ‘ethnic groove’ or something. I dunno. I just know that I’m sometimes partial to this groove.

Bonobo is the alias of British DJ Simon Green.

I got sent this single via digital download by the fellows at Ninja Tune, and as I value their taste I listened to it. Glad that I did. This is so beautiful, near unadorned except for a floor-throbbing bass line, and tinged with the most salacious of saxophones.

Andreya also has her own single out, the wonderfully-titled ‘A Town Called Obsolete’, which is equally as mesmerising in a most pleasing way (think ‘Unfinished Symphony’, Speech Debelle without the night shelter angst).
