Where Can I Find More Music Like Bonobo? Where To Start From

June 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 218

If you want to find more music like Bonobo, then this article outlines some suggestions to start with. Bonobo, being the artist name of a UK-based musician, producer and DJ, blends both acoustic and electronic sounds into his music. While he has a unique sound, that differentiates him from other artists, it is possible to find similar music by using some criteria. Here are a few tactics and considerations.

1. Search by genre

Although it is probably the most broad and time-consuming way for finding more music similar to Bonobo, searching by genre can give you some rare and exotic results. Try entering a genre name into the search engine that describes Bonobo's music best. The main music genres that are mostly used for describing Bonobo, are: downtempo, electronic, chill-out, trip-hop. You can start with any of those words.

However, be ready for clicking through a lot of sites before stumbling upon something valuable, since a search engine typically displays all the different type of content related to your search phrase, and you will have to filter out manually all the excess information that does not meet your criteria. Moreover, even within one genre, the individual sound of the artists varies quite a bit. Therefore, even if you do find a band that has been classified as downtempo, or electronic, it might sound very different from Bonobo. But once you are willing to invest some time into it, this tactic may reward you with some true gems.

2. Last.fm

Founded in 2002, this music website contains the music of a vast number of artists, including recommendations about similar musicians and bands. At the time of writing this article, Hugo Maldoro, Mechanical Me, Pilote, and Blockhead were only a select few of the many different artists recommended in Bonobo's Last.fm profile. Although they all have a slightly unique style and sound, other listeners have found them being more or less similar to Bonobo.

So, instead of performing a broad genre-specific search on Google, which automatically returns you a huge amount of different internet content, including articles, opinions, reviews, Last.fm really concentrates on the artists and their music, listing out the similarities, that are based on other listeners experience and opinions.

3. Some specific examples

Besides the two aforementioned strategies that can help you find more music like Bonobo, here are some specific suggestions. Artists like Cinematic Orchestra and Super Numeri, with their instrumentally experimental sound that transcends various music genres, remind of Bonobo's instrumental compositions.

Other artists like Bonobo include Fink aka Fin Greenall, Quantic aka Will Holland, and Thievery Corporation. While some of them prefer to use more electronic drums and computer processed effects, they mostly play around with loops and acoustic sounds just like Bonobo, creating relaxing and rhythmically captivating music, that is often enriched with the delicate use of enchanting vocals.
