It Came from the Sea

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
Bonobo's Simon Green revealed himself as something of a beat-head with 2003's Dial M for Monkey, and he solidifies his breakbeat credentials with the seventh volume of Ninja Tune's Solid Steel series. It Came from the Sea is a very fraternal venture; the vast majority of the tracks come from Green himself, his colleagues at Ninja Tune or Tru Thoughts the latter of which released his first album, or fellow Brighton natives like Black Grass.

Bonobo's Simon Green revealed himself as something of a beat-head with 2003's Dial M for Monkey, and he solidifies his breakbeat credentials with the seventh volume of Ninja Tune's Solid Steel series. It Came from the Sea is a very fraternal venture; the vast majority of the tracks come from Green himself, his colleagues at Ninja Tune or Tru Thoughts the latter of which released his first album, or fellow Brighton natives like Black Grass. It's clear that Green has been earning his fees at DJ'ing gigs around the world; he has a great ear for an excellent track, and his mixing skills thrust him into the rare company of his fellow Solid Steel mixers DJ Food and Amon Tobin.
