Packed with exclusive cuts...

WIth the success of 'The North Borders', Bonobo's live performance aspect has been pushed to the fore.

The group - led by Simon Green - are playing larger, more ambitious shows, with Bonobo set to play a headline show at London's Alexandra Palace later this year.

Before then, Green has decided to showcase his DJ skills. A renowned selector, the Bonobo lynchpin took charge of Radio 1's ever-vital Essential Mix at the weekend.

Rooted in the Ninja Tune ethos - fellow signings such as Illum Sphere, Kelis make an appearance - it's a deft, soulful selection which never fails to surprise.
