Over the course of six albums for the legendary label Ninja Tune, a myriad of tours, singles, remixes and production work for other artists, Bonobo has built a large, loyal and engaged global fanbase: over half a million album sales and over 150 million streams on Spotify point to the levels of success achieved by this quiet, self-effacing man.
After the epic North Borders tour, Bonobo continued his gradual move westward by laying down roots in Los Angeles. He had spent almost three years out on the road with no fixed home and on returning to New York, he found it a “noisy, stressful environment” and decided to try the other coast. Both the monumental live and DJ tours and his new home in a city full of people from somewhere else have fed into what makes “Migration” such a special record. Green has placed the unstable, the heartbreaking, the often beautiful migratory life at the core of how he understands humanity, and hence how he understands music.
