Signing with Ninja Tune
Having moved to Brighton in the 90s, Green put out his first release on local label Fly Casual. ‘The Scuba’ EP featured a remix from friend Amon Tobin and caught the attention of university friend Rob Luis who started the Tru Thoughts label and played alongside Green at the Phonic:Hoop club night. Following Green’s debut album, ‘Animal Magic’, he signed with Ninja Tune and a truly formidable formation was born. Today, you can’t really think of one without the other. Bonobo has established himself as one of the label’s flagship artists and the luscious sounds he captures fits perfectly into the organic-yet-electronic-vibe Ninja Tune has so carefully curated. Long may the partnership continue.
