British musician/producer/DJ Bonobo and Canadian musician Jacques Greene have released a new single called “Fold,” issued on Bonobo’s OUTLIER label in partnership with Ninja Tune. The dancefloor-ready “Fold” is Bonobo’s first new music of 2023 and arrives almost exactly one year after the release of his latest full-length album Fragments (Ninja Tune). While Greene joined Bonobo on his Fragments tour this past summer, this is their first-ever musical collaboration.
“Phil (stage name Jacques Greene) was in LA and stopped by for a coffee and studio hang. We made the bulk of the track that day. We each played a few various versions in our DJ sets over the summer (I even dropped it in a live show once) and made some decisions on how to finish it. It’s been going down really well in my DJ sets. Excited to get it out there finally,” recalls Bonobo, aka Simon Green.
Having just been announced as co-headliner of Field Day on 19th August in London with Aphex Twin, Bonobo heads into the GRAMMYs with two nominations for Fragments: Best Dance/Electronic Music Album and Best Dance/Electronic Recording for “Rosewood.” He now shares the record for the most nominations in the Dance/Electronic Recording category with The Chemical Brothers and Madonna and is a seven-time nominee. Bonobo was also just nominated for his first BRITs Award for Best Dance Act. The public vote for this award will officially be hosted on TikTok.
