Press Release :
A couple of years back Simon Green decided that he wanted to do more than just DJ when he was out promoting the epic, beautiful music he makes as Bonobo.

Painstakingly he pieced together a live band that could open his vision out live. Drums, keyboard, guitar, sampler, himself on bass, a singer, a saxophonist and a three piece string section. It took time to pull it together but the results have been spectacular.

From playing the Luminaire, the group are now selling out venues like Koko and Forum in Kentish Town. And the musical freedom that Green has found has fed back into his studio music, so that the new record he is currently completing promises to be his best yet. This live DVD is interspersed with interview footage with Bonobo.

Despite his unassuming demeanour, Green takes his music very seriously. With 9 million listed plays on Last FM and sell out shows, a lot of other people are, too.

Bonobo Live At Koko

Original show information :
Bonobo set about building his style in the same way he debunked the lazy journos who seemed intent on labelling him chillout or downtempo. That is by refusing to conform to the preconceived ideas of a laid back style, and aiming headlong for the dancefloor..
With a heavy mixture of hip hop, weighty jazz, broken beats, Latin, funk, and soul, with the occasional cheeky bit of psyche rock and drum and bass thrown in just to keep you on your toes Bonobo became a DJ of international repute. Now in true innovator style Bonobo prepares to hit the stage at Koko with a full live band, knockin it up another notch, rubbing it in the faces of the downtempo hacks with a hearty cry of ‘Fuck the lounge, lets dance’. Strings, horns, drums and vocals. A full live band, more energy and a bigger, heavier sound, this one is sure to rock Koko to it’s foundations.

Supporting will be up and coming producer/DJ Kid Kanevil. His live show will feature Testament on the mic, Pete Williams on percussion, Laura J on flute and a few very, very special guests!!!

All this and a DJ set from Rob Luis, Brighton’s favourite son. This is a must see show for all those who love to celebrate the best in UK talent and dance their asses off while they do it.
