Bonobo Announces ‘Flashlight’ EP for Ninja Tune, Shares Title Track

Bonobo has revealed plans to return to longtime label home Ninja Tune with the three-track Flashlight EP before the year is through. The forthcoming record is said to find Bonobo “getting back to what he does best…[with his] hunger for producing new music [being] potently evident” on the new outing.

Ahead of Flashlight’s release on December 1, Bonobo has shared the effort’s title track, a characteristically hi-fi excursion filled with airy melodies, wistful synths, and bouncy guitar strums. The tune can be heard in full below where the record’s complete tracklist and Bonobo’s upcoming North American tour dates have also been included. (In addition, Shazam users can apparently download “Flashlight” for free by, well, Shazaming the track on their mobile devices.)

Kill Frenzy “All Night Long / No Panties” Single Available Now, Preview Debut Album “Taylr Swft” Out on dirtybird November 3rd


He’s ridden us raw with his naked piano, made our booties clap so hard we’ve needed medical care, shown us his titsss and he’s even taken us to the mo… Wherever that is. Now Belgian wunderkind Kill Frenzy is about to flip the biggest switch of his career and whisk us away on his most exciting, most extensive dirtybird adventure yet: His long-awaited debut album Taylr Swft.

Famed for his ability to carve carnal drama from one smouldering 808 sermon and a sleazy panty-dropping vocal loop, here we find Sebastian Vanschoonbeek developing his uncompromising, ghetto-bound repertoire with serious maturity, depth and class. Building on his well-established bass-laced bedrock, each of these cuts flex with dynamics that will find favour with all house and techno connoisseurs and do so with complete consistency as a whole body of work… hell, they work so well dirtybird bossman VonStroke is almost reluctant to release them.

“I’m almost sad to start sharing the new Kill Frenzy album with everyone else because it has been my secret weapon all summer.  At one point I was playing seven tracks from the album in the same set, it was almost embarrassing. I’m very fickle about choosing what I play and this album is amazing.”

Proof of Kill Frenzy’s next-levelism is evident in every single direction; the cavernous thundering march of “All Night Long”, the bouncy techno fluctuations of “Inflation”, the sultry deep house dish “XXX”, the sheer tech tenacity and roof-burning electro-fication of “Lava”, the delicate jazz keys and purring sub bass of “So Fine”… The list goes on.

Press play, then press it again for good measure: debut albums often dangerously dice with displays of inconsistent dexterity, but with Taylr Swft Kill Frenzy has carefully created a collection that completely makes sense of his past work while staring guilefully into an exciting future. A bona fide dirtybird document that confirms Kill Frenzy’s position as one of electronic music’s boldest creators, Taylr Swft is everything you could possibly want from a modern day album: dancefloor gold, depth, range and an unswerving narrative.

Set to arrive next week, Dauwd‘s second outing for Cologne institution Kompakt is now available to stream in full.

Following behind his Kindlinn EP for the label (which dropped in April of this year) and last year’s excellent Heat Division EP for Ghostly, the Saleh 12″ finds Dauwd again delivering a series of rich productions, each covered in thick layers of intertwining synths and infused with a healthy amount of low-end bump. Before Dauwd’s latest effort drops on October 20, the London producer’s new 12″ for Kompakt can be streamed in its entirety below.
