Renowned electronic artist Bonobo brings us his latest single Ibrik. Having released a highly successful album in 2017, Migration, which reached a top 5 position in the UK charts, he returns with a new work. To release a single of a similar elk is no easy task. Known for being inspired by different countries and their sounds, this track is no different.
Panpipes and an enchanting Egyptian flute sits on top of a smooth bass line which all culminates together into a climax which is released perfectly with soft, silky synthesis. Bonobo takes the listener on a journey which ends with all the instrumentation being taken away until you are left with a warm bright piano.
