Something In The Air

How could one not be excited when seeing the names Bonobo and Maya Jane Coles pop up on one tracks? Such a smooth track that’s perfect for many situations, but especially this Monday.

There’s nothing better than starting your music listening day with a Maya Jane Coles remix. Not only a new Maya track, but a remix of Bonobo’s First Fires from his recent album, ‘The North Borders’, which is one of my favorite of the year especially on a long road trip down the California Coast.

As Mixmag pointed out (who premiered the track) Maya is coming off another amazing album herself, Comfort.  This album has also gotten a lot of airplay on long road trips. Both are on Spotify if you don’t have the cash to fork up. I highly recommend both.

I finally got a see Maya in the flesh a few weeks ago in San Francisco and what a treat. It was definitely one of the better sets I’ve caught all year. I was fully engaged the entire time. My feet were moving and my head was floating.

This remix does the same. It turns Bonobo’s ethereal first track into a slow but hard rolling primordial explosion (pictured above).

I can’t wait for Bonobo’s new album as well as his new tour. He arrives here in SF on May 3rd with DJ LO DOWN LORETTA BROWN aka Erykah Badu and El Ten Eleven. Quite a mix huh?

I usually don’t post any mixes or sets since there are so many. It’s primarily what I listen to though. At any rate, I posted a Bonobo Boiler Room set some time ago. There was an unnamed track he opened the set with that I thought was amazing. I’m happy to find out it’s a track on his new album… and now on soundcloud for our listening pleasure. It’s a beautiful melodic piece.

Bonobo Boiler Room Set

I usually tend to stay away from posting mixes or lives sets because you can find those everywhere. That’s primarily what I listen to often times hoping to catch a ton of tune I love. Many times I can find them, but others I may never find. Take for instance this incredible 50 minute set from Bonobo.

The first track is one that melts my electronic heart but it’s untitled. The same goes for another one of his own productions.

The rest of the mix is fire as well so I hope ya dig it like I did.
