I can't stand  Bonobo anymore. Is just me or are they being played 3 times a day?
 
Funny, this song has grown more hideous to me too.

For the first few seconds I thought I was going to hear "The Revolution will not be Televised" by Gil Scott-Heron.  Good bass line, but pretty common I guess.
That would explain it.

Where is Sonny when you need him?

Please no Cher!

{#No}

Complex and comely!

Hoo hoo!

An outstanding track from an outstanding album. The production on this cd is top notch and well worth listening to on a great system. If you have one, do yourself a treat and give it a go. {#Clap}

Simple , yet good...
I like!
Years ago my boyfriend was working on making music on his new Korg, and he kept trying to get a beat to work. It started soft and then slid into itself, which ended up making it sound like it was actually coming in out of rhythm. No matter how much I tried to tell him it didn't work, he just kept saying, "Yeah, but it actually does start on the beat." And this song is kind of like that.
Right on. Nice little Global Chill ditty to listen to on RP this afternoon.
Love the Bonobo. Check out their other stuff, like Noctuary and The Plug.
Of the last 18 songs (including this one) 16 have been just excellent. Best set I've heard on RP in a year.
Good, high-brow jamming! :)
BIG musicians 'round here, this is awesome
Liked the drumming and where it sent me off to...
Sweet bass line..
Disregarding the distracting goings on below ... (!!) This reminds me of the Oceans movies.  The best part is the music.  Well, George, Brad, and the gang are OK too ...
goodness! {#Eyes}

You woke up with a monkey? {#Think} That must have been some party!

Monkey

started out interestingly...then just kept repeating. Might make a good video game soundtrack.{#Think}

Exactly!  It's the bassline.

That was their claim to fame, until a new recent in the field research study found out they weren't always peaceful and did engage in violence as do other chimp groups.

However, they do use sex as a social lubricant and stress reliever for intergroup conflict, and that makes them different from all other chimps.
 

...or, alternatively, they're just really horny.

Bonobo monkeys are humankind's closest relative in the ape kingdom, and are marked by a highly social and peaceful society in which sex is used constantly as a social glue. They really are a 'make love not war' species, in stark contrast to our other near relatives, chimpanzees, who act in comparison like a bunch of psycho homicidal hooligans.
 
We were in the sex museum in NYC earlier this year and there was a whole exhibit on bonobos, the gist of which was that a bonobo will screw anything.

We went there so that you don't have to.

{#Snooty} Not really! The drum beats never stay the same; that is the most obvious, but subtle changes go on all over the sound, if only you pay attention you'll see. The concept IS to make it somewhat monotonous {#Wink} I say it's pretty cool.

 
yeah, right, monotony can be a quite strong style element!
Like in good Hip Hop music.
Puts you in a kind of slight trance that is quite nice to be in.

Got to give him credit for using a real live human being on the drums, something sorely lacking in this genre.
Eh.  I could live w/o hearing it again.

very cool
atmospheric keys, bass
pressure-cooking syncopation on percussion
JAM!
Great set... Bonobo - The Fever Zero 7 - In the Waiting Line Anna Ternheim - Today Is Such A Good Day Huffamoose - James
Slightly interesting at times... but too long and WAY too repetitive.
Wow, someone is really channelling Duane Allman here........ Which is a good thing in my book.

It's cruel and unnatural to dress those chimps up in suits and ties!

Hate to be picky, but it's not a monkey. Bonobos are chimps, and thus apes.
With that intro, I was expecting Santana.........!
Pretty damn smooth....... :motor:

Bill, did you ever envision this forum to be educational as well as just damn funny? Thanks, 'fredriley'.
I gotta FEVER! And you know what I gotta have!

Jaaaa, das geht!! Nice track full of bass and groove. :dance: :chillpill:
Dear Goodness, I've just woken up to this fine and sweet nectar for my oídos
I only just in the last few days uploaded a track by #Pilote' but it's remixed by Bonobo as that was the version that was released as a single.I also uploaded another bonobo track from his rather rare 'rare grooves,and b-sides' album. Hope it gets thumbs up.
Nice DJ bricolage. Absolutely killer bassline.

Bono bopped along to the Bonobo beat, breathing beautifully.
