“Between The Lines” is a song by Simon Green aka Bonobo from his third album, Days to Come.

Simon Green (born 30 March 1976), known by his stage name Bonobo, is a British musician, producer and DJ.
Green has recorded and performed solo DJ sets under the name Barakas, and together with Robert Luis from Tru Thoughts as Nirobi and Barakas.
His third album, entitled Days to Come, was released on 2 October 2006, the first single from the album was “Nightlite”, featuring vocals by Bajka. FollowingDays to Come his tracks have appeared in a number of media-related items. Days to Come was voted Best Album of 2006 by Gilles Peterson’s listeners.

Bonobo uses a wide variety of samples in his music combined with heavy, often complex basslines. His music generally develops linearly – with new elements such as basslines or percussion coming in one after the other. In Days to Come, he mixes this sonic background with the clean yet distinctive vocals of Bajka, who often uses harmony to build up a multifaceted sound.

Whilst often touring solo, and performing DJ sets, in 2004 Bonobo opted to follow the growing trend amongst electronic acts of playing with a full band. The band plays live renditions of studio material, with a singer, keyboardist, guitarist, saxophonist, string section, electronics, and drummer. Simon Green mainly plays bass guitar, and leads the band from the middle.
