New album and tour from Bonobo

Bonobo is releasing the Black Sands LP on March 23rd in the U.S. and March 29th to the rest of the world. The album is being released on the famous Ninja Tune label. The album features Andreya Triana (of Flying Lotus Reset EP fame) on vocals on two of the tracks.

from the press release
Simon Green aka Bonobo returns with his fourth, most eagerly-anticipated and most accomplished album to date, the magnificent "Black Sands." Green proves once and for all with "Black Sands" that he is an artist and producer with his sights set on much higher prizes than to rule any dusty subgenre of dance music. This is a record of epic reach and massive emotional pull, all held together by Green's understanding of composition and arrangement of live instruments (most of them also played by him) as well as his complete mastery of the tricks and techniques of the digital age.

Bonobo offers a new take on the remix competition

Simon Green aka Bonobo is a man much in demand for his remix skills so we thought we would offer you a bit of a twist on the standard remix competition format. Instead of you remixing Bonobo, we're offering you the chance to get a remix from Bonobo. Yep, for zip, nada and zilch, Simon Green will take a tune of your choice and make it lovely.

It's all quite simple really. Go to the competition homepage and upload a piece of your music. It can be anything from your cutting-edge dubstep to the oompah-band you play in. Anyone visiting the site can vote for their favorite from among the music which has been uploaded. At the end of the competition the ten most popular tracks will be sent to Mr Bonobo and he will decide which to drop his sparkles on.

I have two versions of "Eyesdown" to share with you. The first is the preview edit which is a teaser to get you hyped on how dope the album is going to be.
