10 iconic Bonobo moments

An under-the-radar master

Bonobo AKA Simon Green is one of dance music’s most paradoxical characters. He loves to DJ but is best known for his live performances. He’s considered a pioneering chill-out artist but hates being described as such. His career has been under-the-radar but he’s also one of the biggest artists in dance music today.

It’s lead to Green being as much a favourite of an experienced head as a fresh fan. His tunes and melodies, always luscious and intricate, lend themselves to any kind of moment at any time of day. People are always up for a bit of Bonobo.

It wasn’t always this way, he was a staple of organic electronic music in the 2000’s but never seemed to find the next level. That all seemed to change with ‘Black Sands’, followed by ‘The North Borders’ and this year’s ‘Migration’. Now living in LA, Green is global and much-loved. And it feels like it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving guy.

Check out his most iconic moments from a distinguished career below.
