Stream Bonobo’s LateNightTales cover of Donovan’s ‘Get Thy Bearings’

Ninja Tune regular Bonobo, last heard traversing The North Borders, is about to drop his addition to the long-running LateNightTales mix CD series.

The 21-track set promises a middle ground between vintage fare (Nina Simone, Dorando) and more contemporary beat music – Floating Points, Lapalux, Shlohmo and Airhead all feature. As with previous curators, Simon Green and band have recorded a special cover version for the set, and it’s available to stream exclusively below.

The track in question is Donovan’s lilting ‘Get Thy Bearings’, taken from his 1968 album The Hurdy Gurdy Man. Smouldering and low-slung, it’s a natural fit for Green, and so it’s not surprising that Bonobo’s take is fairly deferential. The new version adds a musky, jazzy quality to the original, and replaces Donovan’s part with a honey-smooth female vocal, making for a more languid reading.

LateNightTales drops on November 17.

Dusky reach number one in Beatport chart

Dusky have managed to overthrow the EDM giants from the coveted Beatport number one spot.

‘Careless’, the title track to their latest release on Aus Music, has knocked Hardwell’s ‘Countdown’ off the top of the chart, a position usually reserved for only the most popular EDM superstars.

The London house duo have slowly crept into the spotlight since their Flo Jam EP last year and have continued to bash out a consistent string of dancefloor anthems ever since.

Perhaps this is the start of a shift in electronic music?

Visit here to download Dusky’s ‘Careless EP’ from Beatport to keep them in top spot, or watch the video below for Dusky in our DJ Lab with Will Saul and Midland.
