(7/2/2019) LA-based producer Bonobo (Simon Green) released his second single of the year (2019) titled ‘Linked’. It’s the follow up to the January 2019 release ‘Ibrik’ from the Fabric presents compilation and his last full album, the Grammy-nominated “Migration” released in 2017.
With the new single, Bonobo’s usual electronic influences (trip-hop, downtempo, nu jazz) shine through, rhythm’s pulsing urgently yet filtered as if the found pathway is a clogged route, immersed in atmospheric synths and angelic-like echoes, a welcomed distraction.
Bonobo has also been curating/DJing recently. He curated the Friday Printworks stage at Field Day, featuring the likes of Leon Vynehall, Actress and Kelly Lee Owens, as well as curating Day One at Nuits Sonores, and stages at Love Saves The Day and We Love Green festival, along with OUTLIER shows at De School, Amsterdam, Montreal and DJ dates in São Paulo and Santiago.
