Bonobo - Nightlite (zero dB/Bonobo remixes)
(12"/Download Single) Ninja Tune ZEN12189/ZENDLS189R, 2006-12-04

Review :
Heavy shit! zero dB's remix goes electro/drum'n'bass, transporting Bajka's original vocals into 21st century extreme soul while Bonobo opts for some more straight'n'poppy drum'n'soul, which doesn't eclipse the original track as much as zero dB's rework. (Djouls)

Press Release :
Ninja rinse-out! Zero dB and Simon Green himself take the beautiful, elegant "Nightlite" from the highly-praised Bonobo album, "Days To Come," and take it on two contrasting but equally dancefloor-destroying d&b outings.

The original 'Nightlite' featured the unique, indefinable voice of Bajka (pronounced Biker). Bajka grew up as part of a travelling music commune called Embryo in places such as Afghanistan, Nepal and Pakistan. Now based in Germany she has released records on labels such as Ubiquity, Jazzman and Compost.

Her vocals have been retained by both parties, but while Zero dB place her amongst their trademark Deep Deep Wobbly Bass(™), acoustic rumbles and general audio shock ‘n' awe, Si Green concentrates on a marvellous, building and beautiful orchestral string part. Oh, and both of them roll out. Pure drum and bass dynamite, with cherries on top.
