Bonobo fans are gearing up for what is certain to be some unforgettable concerts, when the UK master hits Australia next weekend for Splendour and side shows. With two sold out events in Melbourne and one each in Sydney and Perth, it’s clear the love is flowing strong for the subtle soundscapes of Bonobo electronica.
Well it’s good news for both ticket holders and the poor creatures who missed out, because one of Bonobo’s finest label mates and touring partners, Romare, is headlining the official Bonobo after parties in Sydney and Melbourne.
The Ninja Tune regular is one of the UK’s most engaging new acts, his debut album Projections garnering almost unanimous critical acclaim and fierce support from heavy hitters like Gilles Peterson to Four Tet to Pete Tong.
Now ready to share follower Love Songs: Part Two with the world, Romare joins Bonobo in bringing his unique aural collage of samples, beats and unusual instrumentation to Australia. Romare will be supported by top drawer local DJs at each event, all of whom are guaranteed to take things left of field in honour of the illustrious headliner.
Keep the Ninja Tune vibes rolling at the following events…
