Bonobo on the bubble

Ninja Tune UK artist Bonobo will be playing in Victoria

UK electronic artist Bonobo plays in Victoria on July 25 at Club 9One9.

Ninja Tune UK artist Bonobo will be playing in Victoria on July 25 at Club 9One9. This is his first Canadian date since his Black Sands Remix album came out earlier this year.

The original Black Sands came out in 2010 to critical acclaim and worldwide commercial success. Si Green, also known as Bonobo, moved from being an underground producer to a poster boy for a new take on electronic music – contemporary and edgy but also soulful and song-based.

Bonobo will be in Victoria  promoting Black Sands Remix, which gathered a group of like-minded musicians and producers to interpret Bonobo’s classic album.

Most of the material has never been heard before and has been collected with assistance from renowned DJ and label-head Alexander Nut.

Bonobo takes the stage at Club 9One9 on Wednesday, July 25 at 10 p.m.

Tickets start at $15 and are available at Lyle’s Place, Ditch Records, the Strathcona Hotel and online at clubzone.com/innergroove.
