Bonobo in session

Gilles plays out an exclusive Maida Vale session from Bonobo and chats with the man behind the project, Simon Green.

This week Gilles plays out an exclusive session from Bonobo recorded at Maida Vale on Tuesday, with tracks featuring New York singer/songwriter Grey Reverend and London's finest, Szjerdene. If two tracks aren't enough, there's an exclusive session track and a gallery of photos from the session on the website! Gilles and the man behind the project, Simon Green, discuss the new album, touring, influences from the UK dance scene, and the now infamous London gig earlier this month which got unceremoniously interrupted!

Plus, Gilles switches the time signatures by going to the Secret Waltz Club, and drops new tunes from Disclosure, Lone, and Walton, alongside classics from The Last Poets, Herbie Hancock and Bill Withers.
