Bonobo has long been one of the most successful producers on the electronic scene, releasing a number of albums under the renowned Ninja Tune label, topping the charts worldwide and earning three Grammy nominations.
He returns to Prague after four years with a concert at the Forum Karlín on November 26. This time he brings his current recording Fragments, the most emotional album Simon Green aka Bonobo has ever composed.
It’s also one of Bonobo’s most collaborative projects, with memorable appearances coming from Jamila Woods, Joji, and Jordan Rakei, to name a few.
Though there’s no drastic change to the Bonobo blueprint, it’s unlikely that you’ll find a track in which Green doesn’t sound equally masterful and laid-back in his craft, delivering his most soulful and slick efforts to date.
Fluttering strings, orchestral arrangements and choir chants are woven atop infectious beats and trip-hop rhythms, sounding akin to the work of Caribou and Four Tet on tracks like ‘Otomo’ and ‘Age of Phase’.
That being said, Green certainly is in a league of his own, delivering a rich, majestic sound suited for both late-night festival slots as well as historic big-band halls.
