Clear a space on your coffee table now. With
a ready-made stamp of approval from Faithless
and Ibiza’s come-down haven, Cafe Del Mar, Nigerian-raised Ben
Onono is already being compared to Finley Quaye and Sade.

smooth grooves worthy of the most chilled Sunday afternoon. It’s everything you
should hate. Except, dammit, it’s actually quite good.
