Ten years on from what was one of Simon Green aka Bonobo’s most successful records at the time. Fully loaded with a mastery of live composition, Technicolor samplism and complex electronics that he has become known for. Transporting his beat-licks direct into the 21C, notice carefully the 2-step shuffle, the hazy, polyrhythmic hip-hop backbeat. Black Sands is arguable one of Green's fullest and most intriguing efforts to date. Around the late 2000’s when it was recorded, Simon Green had “become fully immersed in what was happening in the UK clubs. Places like Plastic People and warehouse parties in East London and Peckham. This was the post-dubstep era. Elements of House and 2-step. All wonky and joyful. It was fun and progressive. This influence can be heard on the tracks produced around then like ‘Eyesdown’ and ‘1009’” with many of these legendary institutions now shutdown or redeveloped, it’s as inspiring as ever to transport yourself back to this very recent past.
