More Information

Sonoma Counties debut appearance of UK's legendary BONOBO. Crowned as one of the few kings of downtempo electronic music... he's signature style of live melodic music has earned him international recognition as top of the food chain in chill categories. With multiple albums, extensive tours and acclaimed music... this show ranks in the top 5 we've ever done here at Juke Joint.


Simon Green was born and grew up in rural Hampshire, escaping to Brighton aged eighteen. There he fell into the jazz/hip hop/funk/soul scene centred around Rob Luis and nights like phonic:hoop. An accomplished musician as a teenager, he began producing his own tracks, pushing at the template established in the sweaty little venues studding the Lanes.

Green’s first release came on Luis’ label, Tru Thoughts, when his track 'Terrapin' was included on the compilation 'When Shapes Join Together' in 1999. His debut album, 'Animal Magic' followed the next year, completely self-produced and largely self-played, too. Hailed as one of the “new downtempo pioneers”, Green found himself attracting the attention of other labels and eventually signed to Ninja Tune.

In 2003 he released his first album for the label, 'Dial ‘M’ For Monkey'. This was a time when Green was also focussing heavily on his DJing, playing banging dancefloor sets of hip hop, funk and drum & bass up and down the country and across Europe, a period which reached its apogee with the release of the mix album 'Solid Steel: It Came From The Sea'.

'Days To Come' followed in 2006, Green opting for a lusher, more live sound than on his earlier records. To tie in with this musical development, he put together and rehearsed a live band that could bring the music of his records to life. As a result he has moved from selling out the Luminaire to selling out Koko to selling out Kentish Town Forum and the Roundhouse and producing the live DVD to prove it. 'Days To Come' also scooped the Gilles Peterson listnerer’s poll for Album of The Year. At the award ceremonies he met the talented UK soul singer Andreya Triana. Not only did the friendship they struck up result in Andreya’s superb contributions to 'Black Sands' but Si has produced the whole of her solo debut, 'Lost Where I Belong'.

Over the last couple of years, Bonobo has become one of the premier artists on the Ninja Tune imprint and certainly one of the most listened to, with over 16 million plays recorded on LastFM. His combination of superb live shows and studio wizardry means that he is now perfectly placed to push on into a yet bigger league. With 'Black Sands', Bonobo has made the record to achieve it.

along with... MALARKEY & iNi
