LIVE SHOW...

Bonobo's rise has been stealthy but unstoppable, and Si Green, the man behind it all, is now one of the biggest electronic artists of our time. As a DJ and with the Bonobo live band, he's now played to millions of people across the world in shows and festivals, and each album has been bigger than the last with 2017's Migration hitting the top ten in the UK, Netherlands and Belgium and getting untold press coverage everywhere. During this rise, he also achieved the rare feat for a British dance artist of breaking America – and not with the kind of high-octane shock-tactic rave beats and audiovisual spectaculars that characterised the EDM explosion, but with subtle, emotional, ambiguous and musicianly work that demands long and deep immersion.

It began in the southern English countryside, perhaps appropriately for someone whose music often has pastoral undertones. Si's upbringing was rustic, first in Hampshire, then a little to the east in Sussex. His mother stayed at home raising Si and his sisters, and his father worked in the pharmaceutical industry by day – but in his spare time was a musician in the English traditional folk scene, achieving some renown for his accordion technique. It was a quietly cultured upbringing, but the quietness of the countryside also brings boredom – and with that came a love of going out to the woods with friends, first just a few around a campfire, then later in his teens with many more to go looking for illegal raves.

Si soon gravitated to Brighton on the south coast of Sussex, a town long possessed of a hedonistic attitude and home to a thriving club scene. By his late teens, as well as rave music, he'd soaked up experimental indie and shoegaze sounds, and was passionate about hip hop to the point that he'd already started digging back into the music that was sampled by its beat-makers, discovering funk, jazz and more. And Brighton's music scene was the perfect place to indulge this eclecticism.
