Michael Kiwanuka - Final Days (Bonobo Remix)
I can't remember the last time I saw a Bonobo mix of someone else's stuff. But I suppose that if you're only going to do one track every few years then you'd do well to make sure what you deliver is perfect, which this is. I've struggled with Michael Kiwanuka. I find him a little bit flat. This takes his rootsy original and elevates it to another level entirely. It's soaked in warm strings and layered percussion. All of it encasing the vocal, showcasing it perfectly. The result is beautifully hazy summer house music that I could listen to forever.
