Bonobo - Dial M for Monkey (2003)

An album of amazing downtempo. Mellow rhythms, syncopated beats, and some surprising sinister basslines, Bonobo definitely brings it on this one. He reminds me of Amon Tobin on this release, a lighter side to the dark drum n bass legend. There's such a depth of emotion here that you quickly forget how short some of the songs are, they're just that good. It's obvious great care was taken with this, and it shows. Grab!
