Bibio shares "Crushed Crushed Velvet" for a good cause

English musician Stephen Wilkinson, a.k.a. Bibio, is many things rolled into one; nature geek, multi-instrumentalist, chef, not to mention Boards of Canada's number one fan.  Since his breakthrough album Ambivalence Avenue, Wilkinson's releases have been an unpredictable smattering of acoustic guitar, gentle ambience, and J Dilla-inspired hip-hop beats, all tied together by his unique sonic signature.

So, when Bibio drops a new track, you never know what you'll get.  His latest song, "Crushed Crushed Velvet," goes the hip-hop route, and I couldn't be happier with the choice.  It's a genre that has taken the backseat throughout Wilkinson's career, appearing only occasionally on tracks like "You" and "Fire Ant."  "Crushed Crushed Velvet" is more chaotic than its predecessors, swirling like a wind-tossed kite controlled only by an invisible string.

It's all for a good cause, too - Bibio joins a long, long list of artists (over 250) contributing to Touched. Two, a compilation benefitting MacMillan Cancer Support.  The collection drops Nov. 28, and boasts what is practically a who's-who list of the experimental electronic world.
