It's not every day that this creative musician comes out with new material, but on the occasional day you can guarantee it's going to be good. I'm of course speaking of downtempo magician Bonobo, an increasingly talented artist that is constantly pushing his own ideas as well as the others he inspires. Yesterday, London Grammar released a Bonobo remix of "Hey Now" through Soundcloud to their audience's amazement. The track is part of London Grammar's most recent EP that features additional remixes of "Hey Now" from Bohdi, Arty, and Tensnake. Bonobo's remix takes a softer note than the rest as his work of London Grammar comes off melodic. The soft sounding trio, London Grammar, seems perfectly fitting to be taken up by a unique artist, as the remix shines new colours of spring.
The remix begins on a gentle tone that slowly lifts the melody. Before you know it, Bonobo layers in a light layer of footwork percussion that blends meticulously well with the voice of Hannah Reid. It is completely slowed down once more before a similarly soft impact on the beat that moves the listener effortlessly. Easily one of Simon Green's personal skills is his ability to make any song brilliantly structured in a veracity of timbres.
