This past weekend, on Saturday, October 12, 2013, Simon Green brought the full live incarnation of his Bonobo project to Terminal 5 in New York City. Green is not only an accomplished producer but a multi-instrumentalist as well, oftentimes playing and recording majority of the organic sections on his own productions. With a career spanning over a decade and five albums, including a remix album, B-sides album, a dozen EPs, and most recently his critically acclaimed new record, The North Borders (released in spring 2013), it's no wonder the man is an international sensation. Majority of Bonobo's live sets are bass-heavy DJ sets that spin the room into a frenzied dance party; sometimes they include some original production, but more often than not they are comprised majority of remixes of his original production alongside original remixes of other artist's music. Once in a while, though, Green arranges for a most spectacular cast to come together and bring his original productions to life in a way that can only be described as, well, spectacular.
