Holobiont: hɒləˈbʌɪ’ɒnt. 2016 saw Globular (AKA Morison Bennett) return with this, his 3rd studio album, taking us ever further into his world of psychedelic downtempo and dub. Weaving lush soundscapes and deep bass lines, he hopes this is a journey you won’t forget in a hurry.

A holobiont is defined as the host plus of all its microbial symbionts, including transient and stable members. All individuals who participate in a particular symbiosis are bionts and the entire organism that is comprised of these bionts is a holobiont. Meaning that essentially everything is a holobiont, because every macro-species lives in symbiosis with some other species. You’re a holobiont.
