Lab Overview

Originally released on UK's True Thoughts and later picked up by Ninja Tune, Animal Magic is a standout of the early 2000s downtempo scene. Bonobo's sample-based productions are filled with dynamic shifts that add a layer of depth not often found on similar records: loop based material, for sure, but there's a sense of subtlety as the songs run their course. Once you get past the mellow vibes of "Sleepy Seven" you're treated to the one-two punch of "Dinosaurs" and "Kota." Heavy breaks underpin both cuts, while "Kota" serves to pickup the pace. From there the motor is running and nearly every track is a memorable one, from the mournful sax of "The Plug" to the breakneck beats of "Sugar Rhyme." It's no wonder there was enough demand to get this release back in print. Limited-edition 180 gram double yellow vinyl repress.
