Bonobo drops ‘No Reason’

Share

bonobo

After two recent singles showcasing the dynamic range of Migration, his best album to date, Bonobo returns with his third track of the album due out on Friday ‘No Reason’.

It features the vocals of Bonobo’s long time friend, and now collaborator, Nick Murphy (formerly Chet Faker.) and is dance music at its deepest, a beautiful house song with fragile melodies underpinned by a tough-edged groove and razor-sharp arpeggio.

The song came about when Simon Green (AKA Bonobo) and Nick were discussing a shared love of disco. Si played the instrumental of No Reason, and Nick instantly fell in love with it. After laying down demo vocals in that first session, the pair recorded the final version in NYC, Si’s former home, and Nick’s current one.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
