Simon Green, better known as Bonobo, is one of those rare musicians who apparently can do no wrong when it comes to creating music. His latest release, the short but very sweet Flashlight EP is yet another example of why Green is arguably one of the most talented musicians in the world of electronic/ambient/downtempo music—the guy’s a legend! The EP begins with the lush, flowing title track “Flashlight,” which, like the opening tracks on his other albums, sets the perfect tone for what is to come. That is followed up by a spacier, more upbeat groove called “Pelican,” which takes the listener ever deeper into the sonic bliss of the EP. Everything is wrapped up (far too soon) with “Return To Air,” featuring soothing female vocal snippets and varied percussion over little electronic flourishes that reminds me of songs like “Kiara” or “Kong” off of the Black Sands album. Although it just makes me impatient for more Bonobo, the EP is most certainly worth the listen and the purchase. Enjoy!
