Designklub SHOP JEEN Bonobo / Artist / Ninja Tune Simon Green, AKA Bonobo, is an artist very much at the peak of his powers. His 2013 album ‘The North Borders’ was the high watermark of his career to date: a masterful record, marrying Green's inimitable melodic genius to cutting edge electronics, bass and drums. An artist that constantly pushes himself outside of his musical comfort zone, Bonobo’s ranging personal tastes and regularly expanding range of synthesizers and instruments continue to take his productions to new levels. This outlook has earned him a reputation as one of the most pioneering figures in electronic music, in both his solo DJ sets and 12-piece live band shows. All this comes as the result of over ten years hard work, and five albums that have honed Green's skills. It's tempting to relate Green's yearning, emotive aesthetic to his upbringing in rural Hampshire. His first album - 2000's 'Animal Magic' - was released via Tru Thoughts before being picked up by Ninja Tune.

Whenever there is a discussion around celebrities like Jay-Z and Beyonce, there is the everlasting talk of how much they are a part of the Illuminati and therefore should not be discussed on the site. Well, Damian “Junior Gong” Marley has just become part owner of Jay Z’s Tidal music. Of course Junior Gong is not Illuminati, neither is Jay Z, Beyonce or most of the Black celebrities that their own Black people try to pin the label on.
