Crawl a search engine for the word 'Bonobo' and you'll come up with photos of a gracile chimpanzee, or great ape. But in fact, there's another Bonobo whose doing a little more than just monkeying around in the music industry.
Simon Green, known by his stage name Bonobo, is a musician, producer and DJ who has also performed under the name Barakas, and together with Robert Luis from Tru Thoughts as Nirobi and Barakas. Officially, his first release under the moniker Bonobo was the song "Terrapin" in 1999 as part of a Tru Thoughts compilation.
The identity crisis (of sorts) seemed to end with Bonobo's debut album, "Animal Magic" in 2001, which was completely self-produced. But it was his third album, 2006's "Days to Come," that really put Bonobo on the map and was voted Best Album of the Year by Giles Peterson's listeners of London-based radio. It was followed up by album "Black Sands" in 2010, which spawned the single "The Keeper" featuring vocals by Andreya Triana. In turn, Green produced Triana's debut album "Lost Where I Belong."
In February 2012, "Black Sands Remixed" was released, featuring tracks from the original album remixed by noted electronic producers such as Lapalux, Mark Pritchard, Machinedrum and more. Bonobo's latest releases since then have been the 2013 album, "Cirrus," given a worldwide debut on Peterson's BBC program, and in April 2014 he'll have 2x10" vinyl releases made available on Record Store Day (April 19). The first will be released by Late Night Tales, while the second is Bonobo's remix of London Grammar's "Hey Now" on Ministry of Sound.
