It's been almost three years since the release of Bonobo's masterful, mould-breaking 'Black Sands'. Now, in 2013, he stands ready to take things up yet another notch. 'The North Borders' is a long stride forward - both a natural evolution and a continuation of the electronic palette of 'Black Sands'. Thematic, resonant, addictive and perfectly formed, it's a thrillingly coherent statement piece. Additional artists featured include Erykah Badu, Grey Reverend, Cornelia and Szjerdene.
