INPUT | Bonobo (DJ Set) and Museum of Love (DJ Set) in The Panther Room

INPUT presents Outlier | Bonobo (DJ Set)

"With the experimental warmth of '60s French films and the pizzicato flavor of horizontal hip-hop, Simon Green's Bonobo project established the welcome niche of a pretension-free, post-party intellectual chillout. An almost silent figure among Ibizian romanticists, Green began in Brighton, debuting in 1999 with a track on Tru Thoughts Recordings' When Shapes Join Together compilation. Though tempted by offers from Mute and XL after the official issue of "The Scuba EP" and the "Terrapin" single, Green stuck with Tru Thoughts for the acclaimed debut LP Animal Magic. Highlighted by downtempo dub, funk, and an equally likable use of sitars, Animal Magic was an obvious success and plans were quickly made for careful European support appearances, as well as a follow-up album, Dial "M" for Monkey, for Coldcut's Ninja Tune label. A tour to support the record followed and was documented on the 2005 EP Live Sessions. BBC Radio 1 DJ Gilles Peterson’s audience voted Bonobo’s 2006 effort Days to Come Album of the Year, and two years later the man’s live show would be documented on the Live at Koko DVD. After some time off he returned in 2010 with the Black Sands album, featuring the single “The Keeper.”" - Dean Carlson, AllMusicGuide

Museum of Love

Museum of Love is the musical project of Pat Mahoney (Founding member of LCD Soundsystem) and Dennis McNany (Jee Day). Longtime friends in New York, McNany and Mahoney found a similar sensibility and a shared vocabulary for interpreting surroundings, something that began with their remix of Battles' "My Machines feat. Gary Numan" and extended into their creation of a full length record together. Naming their duo in ode to Daniel Johnston's song of the same name, Mahoney divulges, "I had always loved the song, and had been thinking of what such an edifice would contain when we were trying to name the project." McNany continues, "Pat's a sculptor, I'm a painter, we make music and museums are sacred spaces and love is an elusive thing." Museum of Love is the result of a songwriting collaboration between McNany and Mahoney, with McNany writing most of the music, and Mahoney most of the words. Together they edited and arranged the tracks in the studio. Mahoney says the process of collaboration was energizing, while McNany simply explains, "making the record was pure pleasure. Waiting for it to come out has been the hardest thing." "Museum of Love moves at a stately pace here, offering a slow and steady chugger that wraps itself in gauzy vocal layers and takes its sweet time reaching its climactic peak." (Pitchfork)
