Embrace is the term that best summarizes the exchange between Bonobo and his audience, a welcoming and adoption of the noise that surrounds listeners. Simon Green, a UK native, is a pioneer and mastermind of the downtempo/trip hop sound that is Bonobo. Usually accompanied with a live band, Green holds his ground gracefully above the bass.

I am nobody special, I come from a nobody special family in a nobody special kind of town.  However, when I spent Independence Day 2011 at Electric Forest Festival, I felt special.  Suddenly I was from the String Cheese Incident’s family and I lived in the Sherwood Forest!
