With his fourth album, the recently released Black Sands, U.K.-based Bonobo has secured his status as the production star of the Ninja Tune label. The talented producer and musician is fond of creating epic soul- and funk-infused soundscapes embellished with expansive horn arrangements. Astutely, he avoids memories of bland trip-hop with hearty use of upcoming London-born songstress Andreya Triana, whose delicate vocals feature throughout the album. She has already collaborated with L.A.'s feted beatmaker Flying Lotus on the track "Tea Leaf Dancers," and Bonobo is set to produce her debut album, due out this fall. She is accompanying him onstage throughout his U.S. tour. Together, they exemplify an urbane and soulful U.K. sound.
