Named after the species of great ape renown for its extensive sexual appetite, Bonobo is the moniker of British DJ and producer Simon Green. Active as Bonobo since the late 90’s, Green’s prolific trip hop output lives up to the expectations generated by the project’s namesake: electronic music that recalls the sensuality of Portishead with a beat you can dance to. His fifth full length LP “The North Borders” finds Green coming into his own, after a decade of pulling himself out of the underground and into the international mainstream. Today, Bonobo, with a full live band in tow, headlines this free show which is part of Okayplayer's yearlong 15th Anniversary celebration. Also on the bill are pop duo Cibo Matto, who continue to tour in support of Hotel Valentine, and Seattle electro duo ODESZA.
