The North Borders' was one of 2013's biggest and brightest albums and since its release, UK producer Bonobo has been riding a well-deserved wave of success. He's been touring non-stop with his visually-stunning live show alongside a sprinkling of DJ sets so to say that Simon Green's been busy is an understatement. His latest project however is an international party series called Outlier and he'll be inviting some of his favourite DJs to spin at different venues around the world. He'll be heading to Berlin and Paris with the showcase but it's the London party that's got us really excited. With an personally curated line-up that brings both heavy-hitters and fresh talent to the fold, dancers can look forward to performances from Maya Jane Coles, Trevino, George Fitzgerald, Special Request, Gilles Peterson and Lapalux at Tobacco Dock on March 12. To celebrate what's sure to be a unique and eclectic day of music, Bonobo has put his curation hat back on and compiled the best tracks from the artists playing at Outlier. We've been listening to this in the office and it includes some absolute pearlers. Cuts from Lone, Dauwd and Romare should get you suitably excited for the event so get those headphones on and lose yourself in Bonobo's vision.
‘Tis the season. No, not that one - the one where everyone reveals that they’re coming back this year. The latest exciting addition? Bonobo, who’s promising a new album in 2016. In a succinct-as-you-like tweet in the early hours of January 1st, Simon Green stated that there’s a “New album coming in 2016”. That’s it, but it’s enough to get giddy about, no? It’s be the first full-length follow-up to 2013’s ‘The North Borders’ - which saw Green embark on a massive world tour - and the first new material since 2014’s ‘Flashlight’ EP.
Legendary UK producer, musician and DJ Bonobo returned to Denver Thursday night, October 6, 2016. He played at Beta Nightclub’s Future Thursdays, which showcases electronic music that goes beyond a single genre. Bonobo was the perfect poster child for this theme, as he can transcend genres and create a signature sound of his own. He tours both with a full band and just as a DJ, and decided to bring the later to Beta on this chilly Thursday evening in the 303. Playing at Beta allowed this world class artist the opportunity to take advantage of Beta’s funktion one speakers. These speakers provide listeners with a refined speaker system that amplifies the sound behind electronic production and almost makes bass sound healthy. It overflowed one’s core with a fluidity of sound to make the best music even better.
Bonobo, otherwise known as Simon Green, announces sixth album and lays down an April-May trek across North America. Destinations for the British producer/DJ/musician include Toronto, Boston, Denver, Chicago, Minneapolis and Vancouver. 824905
Bonobo has unveiled his plans for 2017, where the British producer will release his long-awaited follow-up album Migration, just three years removed from his 2013 studio effort The North Borders. Not only were fans gifted with the announcement of a full-length project today (Nov. 3), Bonobo dropped his 2017 tour dates in support of his forthcoming project and also released the accompanying visual to the album's first single "Kerala". Nature and the euphoric feeling it evokes are often central themes behind Bonobo's past projects Black Sands and The North Borders and his upcoming album Migration, (out January 13th via. Ninja Tune) carries on the euphoric theme. "The study of people and spaces", Simon Green, the man behind the moniker Bonobo says of the album. "It’s interesting how one person will take an influence from one part of the world and move with that influence and effect another part of the world. Over time, the identities of places evolve.”
Bonobo (real name Simon) is always as fun to listen to as his name is to say. Over and over again, in both cases. The man pretty much owned the electronica world off the back his last album The North Borders, entering the Top 30 in the UK album chart and holding the numero uno spot on electronic charts in both the US and UK for a ruddy long time. Having freshly announced a new album due out in January, Migration, Bonobo reflects on life’s ups and downs. New single Kerela neatly picks up where The North Borders left off. For hardcore fans, that means wind-chimes samples and plenty of them. Read more: http://metro.co.uk/2016/11/11/now-new-next-bonobo-dua-lipa-tigercub-and-more-6247317/#ixzz4S375Vgli
With all the delirious hype around 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you'd be forgiven for not wanting to hear anything about the infamous series for several years. However,Resident Advisor is reporting that a compilation of Star Wars-inspired electronic tracks is due to land later this month. Mega-producer Rick Rubin (whose fingerprints are all over music from the likes of the Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Jay Z) has curated Star Wars Headspace: a collection of 15 tracks that sample audio from the Star Wars films. Notable artists to contribute works include Flying Lotus with "R2 Where R U?" and Rustie with "EWOK PUMPP," plus Shlohmo, Baauer, Bonobo, Claude VonStroke, and Röyksopp.
Before the compilation drops via the Hollywood label on February 19, stream a handful of tracks (and hear what FlyLo had to say about the project to radio host Zane Lowe) here via Pitchfork.

DIY spotted a mysterious mural bearing the Brighton producer’s logo in East London’s oh-so-trendy Shoreditch this evening, bearing both the Bonobo logo and some new artwork. Presumably, it’s a hint towards a new release. The East London Mural Tactic (that’s its official name now, ELMT for short) has been utilised by both James Blake and his old pal Bon Iver this year, to drum up hype for both ‘The Colour In Anything’ and ‘22, A Million’ respectively.
Last Thursday, Bonobo stepped behind the decks at Output in Brooklyn for the latest set in his residency there. As a producer, he’s been exploring the virtues of sample-based music since 2000, mostly ignoring trends that come and go in electronic music and hip-hop. He’s a pillar of the venerated label Ninja Tune, which has released four of his five albums, and this Saturday, he will headline a warehouse party celebrating the organization’s 25th anniversary.
Chiming electro mover Bonobo has announced details of his first album in over three years , and set for release on January 13th. ‘Migration’ is set to include appearances from the likes of Nick Murphy (aka Chet Faker) and Rhye amongst others, and is destined to be packed with the refreshing beats and highs that have made Bonobo a world-wide player. Talking about the album, Bonobo (otherwise known as Simon Green – because if you’re passport name was just Bonobo that may be a bit odd) said: “My own personal idea of identity has played into this record and the theme of migration, It’s interesting how one person will take an influence from one part of the world and move with that influence and affect another part of the world. Over time, the identities of places evolve.” The first taste from ‘Migration’ has also been revealed, with new track ‘Kerala’ bursting with infectious melodies and a Brandy-sample that’s already getting us set for the weekend..
Bonobo has just announced a forthcoming album, titled 'Migration', along with a supporting global tour. The melodic innovator, also known as Simon Green, will release the upcoming 12-track LP on Ninja Tune, an imprint that's been home to most of his music throughout his career. Bonobo's new album, in standard form for the artist, takes an experimental approach and explores a curious essence of "transitory nature". Following his highly-acclaimed 2013 'The North Borders', 'Migration' will be issued on both vinyl and digital mediums, boasting a full roster of original work and collaborators such as Rhye, Innoc Gnawa and the former Chet Faker, Nick Murphy. In line with album support, Bonobo will be embarking on a four-month global tour. The 'Migration' shows will make stops in 21 cities across Europe and 18 in North America, kicking off February 2017.

The Star Wars universe has inspired all matter of unofficial tribute music, but the series has never come with official albums full of "inspired by" pop music from modern hitmakers. That changed on Monday with the announcement of Star Wars Headspace, a full-length dance album "infused with Star Wars sound clips and effects" launching on "all digital storefronts" on February 19 ahead of a CD release in March.
Chances are good that anybody old enough to have seen the original trilogy in theaters will not recognize a single musical contributor on Headspace, save that of its leading producer Rick Rubin—the man who helmed the Beastie Boys' Licensed To Ill sessions, among many, many other albums. His label, American Recordings, will release the album; the album's roster is otherwise stacked with a surprisingly hip collection of electronic producers, including Rokysopp, Flying Lotus, and Bonobo.
For the modern-techno uninitiated, this album's contributors tend more toward down-tempo, instrumentally intricate beats as opposed to the predictable climax-and-fall electric-fuzz snoozedom of Skrillex, but it's hard to pin the 15 contributors to a single electronic subgenre. From the sound of the three preview songs that Apple Music posted today, the young batch of contributors may take very different cues from their Star Wars inspirations as well. Flying Lotus' contribution sounds like a DJ Shadow beat with the sole special addition of R2D2 noises scattered all over the place, while Baauer's cut, "Cantina Boys," chops and screws the first film's cantina tunes with a big-beat drum line and liberal use of Darth Vader's breathing.
It's all a far cry from the last major Star Wars tribute album series we can remember: the space-disco rearrangements of the orchestral score released by Meco during the original trilogy's era. We're gonna groove to those today (Episode IV, Episode V) while imagining some fictional song titles based on the new album's real ones. Here's Headspace's full tracklisting:
A few months after Star Wars' imperial march back into public consciousness on the strength of The Force Awakens, Rick Rubin—who's acting as a sage, Yoda-like figure these days—has announced a new compilation inspired by (and sourced from) the sci-fi series, due out in a couple of weeks. The compilation, Star Wars Headspace, is set to feature the best sort of futurists who you'd expect to be involved in a project themed around a galaxy far, far away.
Flying Lotus, Shlohmo, Rustie, Baauer, Bonobo, and more have all crafted tracks that feature sounds drawn from the Star Wars universe, and if the whole enterprise sounds a little kitschy, the Brainfeeder boss himself took to Apple Music's Beats 1 station today to demonstrate proof of concept. FlyLo dropped off his contribution to the comp "R2 Where R U?," which barrel-rolls and warps with the best of his roiling output, and demonstrates a return to the sort of wobbly beats he hasn't made since the Pattern + Grid World EP.
Baauer also offered his track, the Darth Vader-sampling "Cantina Boys," which is as dizzy and doom-laden as any of his recent compositions. Listen to both below and check out Star Wars Headspace's full track list, which includes a number of oddball inclusions (like Kaskade!) and a Rubin and A-Trak collaborative remix of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Cantina Song for The Force Awakens. It's bound to be interesting, if nothing else.
Star Wars Headspace track list:
1. Kaskade, "C-3P0's Plight" 2. GTA, "Help Me!" 3. TroyBoi, "Force" 4. Baauer, "Cantina Boys" 5. Shag Kava, "Jabba Flow: Rick Rubin Re-Work" [ft. A-Trak] 6. Claude VonStroke, "R2 Knows" [ft. Barry Drift] 7. Rick Rubin, "NR-G7" 8. Bonobo, "Ghomrassen" 9. Röyksopp, "Bounty Hunters" 10. ATTLAS, "Sunset Over Manaan" 11. Flying Lotus, "R2 Where R U?" 12. Shlohmo, "Druid Caravan of Smoke" 13. Rustie, "EWOK PUMPP" 14. Galantis, "Scruffy-Looking Nerfherder" 15. Breakbot, "Star Tripper"
Star Wars Headspace is out February 19 digitally and March 18 physically onHollywood Records/American Recordings.
