Producer and DJ Simon Green performs and records as Bonobo. Ever since his first release, 2000’s Animal Magic, Green has consistently pushed himself into fresh territory with each album, patiently exploring vast swaths of the electronic music spectrum.
Green is a mastermind of complex and rewarding soundscapes, danceable, thought-provoking, and mesmerizing in turns. Like the small chimpanzee that the project is named for, there’s an innocence to Green’s curiosity and sonic exploration that makes his music deeply engrossing, even for those that don’t consider themselves fans of electronic music.
Green’s most recent album Migration, released at the top of 2017, is his finest work yet: knotty, rich in texture and color, varied in tempo, and seeming to exist altogether outside of time.
