Given his impeccable downtempo credentials, you'd expect Bonobo's Late Night Tales mix to be one of the finer installments in the series (and that's saying something). Predictably, it is. Sweet, sensual and atmospheric, with plenty of unlikely gems and forgotten classics for the heads to enjoy, it surprises and impresses with each successive track. His own cover of Donovan's "Get Thy Bearings" is particularly revelatory - string drenched, hazy, atmospheric and, of course, immaculately produced - but there are many other highlights. Check, for example, the smoky reggae-soul of Nina Simone's "Baltimore", the shuffling delight of Andrew Ashong's "Flowers" and the enveloping intimacy of Schlomo's "Places". And that's just for starters.
