TOTW: Bonobo 7th Sevens

On his latest album Migration, Bonobo has created some brilliantly well constructed dance tracks that manage to blend great melodies with interesting instrumentation, funky bass lines and unique percussion. It really gets going in the second half where stronger club elements come out to drive the album to its conclusion.

7th Sevens is the penultimate track and exemplifies what Bonobo does best. Mix world music instrumentation (especially percussion) with the more organic sounds of electronic music. The track goes for a subtle approach as the music builds, deconstructs and re-builds several times to its conclusion. It demonstrates my favourite parts of modern electronic music and had to be my Track of the week:
