Bonobo's Black Sands was definitely one of my favorite albums of 2010, and it's still an album I reach for when I'm due some relaxation time. Not only that, but it acted as a great introduction to one of my favorite voices, Andreya Triana, and her own solo effort, Lost Where I Belong. Almost two years after its release, Black Sands Remixed sees some of the best songs on the album being re-imagined and reworked by some pretty big names, resulting in a great companion piece to the original. "Eyesdown" gets the remix treatment a total of four times, but it's the version featuring label-mate DELS that stands out, staying true to the original instrumental but featuring rapped verses by DELS and the hook by Andreya. Bonobo and the label even put together a video for the remix, which you can check out below and, as an added bonus, you can check out a 20-minute mini-mix of the remix package, which hits stores today after the bounce.
