British musician and producer, Bonobo has seen a stealthy and unstoppable rise, and Simon Green, the man behind it all, is now one of the biggest electronic artists of our time! He initially debuted years back with a trip-hop aesthetic, and since ventured into more of an upbeat approach while experimenting with Jazz and World Music.
His 2017 ‘Migration’ album is his 6th body of work and biggest yet, achieving a top five chart position in the UK and nominated for Best Dance/Electronic album at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards cementing his breakthrough in the US. ‘Migration’ also won the Album of the Year at the 2017 Electronic Music Awards – and to top it all off, Bonobo was nominated for Live Act of the Year at the awards show too.
Green’s work has amassed a cult following around the globe, collaborating with various musical heavyweights solidifying his presence on the electronic music scene. In celebration of his upcoming shows in SA this February, BreakOut presents our ‘Song of The Day’ – a track off Bonobo’s latest album titled ‘No Reason‘ Ft Nick Murphy accompanied by the official music video.
Bonobo will perform live in Cape Town on Friday the 8th of February 2019 with his 8-piece band at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and will then head to Jozi for Sounds Wild featuring Bonobo (Dj Set) at the Fox Junction Event Venue, on the 9th February.
