Simon Green aka Bonobo brings his highest echelons of electronic music and beyond to the Pavilion in March!
New music from Simon Green aka Bonobo is always an event, but when it heralds the arrival of a whole new album (his first since 2013’s “The North Borders”), it’s really something to get excited about.
The masterful, magisterial “Migration” is Green’s sixth album and it’s a record which cements his place in the very highest echelons of electronic music and beyond.
Lead track “Kerala” was the first track Green recorded for the new record, putting together a rough version of it on the tour bus while DJing across theStates in 2014. It’s both a classic piece of Bonobo music and a development, all arpeggiated, twisted, layered strings and shuffling dancefloor rhythm. The music gradually builds until his introduction of a sample from RnB singer Brandy, itself cut up and dealt with as a further texture, with the whole sitting in a sweet spot of uplifting euphoria that he’s so adept at finding. The hypnotic video (also released today), has been directed by Bison (Jon Hopkins/London Grammar/ Rosie Lowe). It compliments the shuffling arpeggios and beats perfectly by creating staggered loop effects where the lead Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace/Inside No. 9) battles through a mysterious, distorted reality with a meteor flying overhead.
In particular, there is a theme on the upcoming album of migration, eruditely put by Green as “The study of people and spaces” he expands, “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.”
Daktyl is a multi-instrumentalist with a diverse musical background. The LA-based UK-born DJ/producer uses beat-driven organic grooves that merge Hip-hop, Soul, Garage, and Bass for music that is equally relevant and exciting on both sides of the Atlantic.
After spending much of 2016 writing music and playing shows Daktyl, who has recently signed to Counter Records (sister label of Ninja Tune), is set to release a number of singles & productions featuring the likes of Aquilo, Janelle Kroll, Vic Mensa, Krrum & DUCKWRTH alongside stellar remixes of Glass Animals and Gigamesh.
