Track 5
"Kerala" - Bonobo

Simon Green, known by his stage name Bonobo, is a British musician, producer and DJ based in Los Angeles. He has gained recognition for his tranquil electronic music, influenced by a variety of genres including jazz, ambient, and world music. Green has also recorded and performed under the name Mr Blue and with Robert Luis from Tru Thoughts as Nirobi and Barakas. He has collaborated on songs with numerous other artists and has performed live with a full band. "Kerala" is taken from Migration, his sixth studio album. It was released in January 2017. On November 28, 2017 Migration was nominated for Best Dance/Electronic Album at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. Bonobo is currently at #191 on my Top Artist list, with 21 total tracks. Green's first release under the moniker Bonobo was in October 2001 with the song "Terrapin" on the Tru Thoughts compilation When Shapes Join Together. He released his debut album Animal Magic on Tru Thoughts in 2000. With this album, completely self-produced and self-instrumented, he became one of the "new downtempo pioneers." He has collaborated with various artists, including Bajka, Andreya Triana, Erykah Badu, and Rhye who contributed vocals to songs on his last four albums Days to Come, Black Sands, The North Borders, and Migration, respectively.

Track 6
"Lost On You" - LP

"Lost on You" is a song recorded by recording artist LP. It was released on November 20, 2015, as the second single from her third extended play, Death Valley and the fourth studio album of the same name (2016). "Lost on You" experienced commercial success, topping the charts of twelve countries, Belgium (Wallonia), the Czech Republic, France, Greece, Israel, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland (Romandie) and Turkey. The single was also certified quadruple Platinum by the Federation of the Italian Music Industry for sales exceeding 200,000 units. Laura Pergolizzi (LP) has written songs for other artists including Cher, Rihanna, the Backstreet Boys, Rita Ora and Christina Aguilera. In May 2012, LP was featured as the Artist of the Week in Vogue magazine. Pergolizzi is of Italian descent, her grandfathers coming from Naples and Palermo. LP moved to New York City from Huntington Station, New York and adopted the name "LP" during that time. "Lost On You" is, to date, the only track by Pergolizzi, to appear on my Music Library.

 

"Death Valley"

Tracks 10, 22
"Busted And Blue" .. "Ticker Tape" - Gorillaz

These two songs can be found on Humanz, the fifth studio album by British virtual band Gorillaz. Created in 1998 by musician Damon Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett, the band consists of four animated members: 2-D (lead vocals, keyboards), Murdoc Niccals (bass guitar), Noodle (guitar, keyboards), and Russel Hobbs (drums and percussion). These members are fictional and are not personas of any "real life" musicians involved in the project. Their fictional universe is explored through the band's music videos, as well as a number of other short cartoons. In reality, Albarn is the only permanent musical contributor, and the music is often a collaboration between various musicians. Albarn and comic book artist Hewlett met in 1990 when guitarist Graham Coxon, a fan of Hewlett's work, asked him to interview Blur, a band Albarn and Coxon had recently formed. The idea to create Gorillaz came about when Albarn and Hewlett were watching MTV. Hewlett said, "If you watch MTV for too long, it's a bit like hell, there's nothing of substance there. So we got this idea for a cartoon band, something that would be a comment on that." Although not released under the Gorillaz name, Albarn has said that "one of the first ever Gorillaz tunes" was Blur's 1997 single "On Your Own", which was released for their fifth studio album Blur. Humanz features collaborations from several artists including Noel Gallagher, Grace Jones, Kali Uchis, Vince Staples, Popcaan, DRAM, Anthony Hamilton, De La Soul, Danny Brown, Kelela, Mavis Staples, Pusha T, and Benjamin Clementine.
