V.A.
Sound Sensation
compiled by BiggaBush

CD SD136-2
Release date: 25.11.2005


As one half of legendary Birmingham based outfit Rockers Hi-Fi, Glyn 'Bigga 'Bush redefined musical history and independent dancefloor business more than just once during the 90s. Constantly exploring the infinite and thrilling space between deep dub vibes, soulful musical tradition, up to date electronica and the grooviest global beat flavours stayed Bigga's mission even more so after Rockers Hi-Fi split up a few years ago. Following the path of his highly influential solo ventures under the Lightning Head moniker, Bigga Bush released the prophetic 'Biggabush Free' album on Stereo Deluxe in 2004 and earned a huge amount of love and respect among fans and critics around the world alike.

These days, Bigga's production homebase is located near Dorset/UK, deep in the countryside: a perfect base for daring all sorts of eclectic sound excursions. The 'studio don' constantly sharpens his production skills there, living and breathing within his studio realms, just as much as he digs for new music, rare mixes, obscure vinyl records and secret cd-r versions crafted by like minded djs / producers from around the globe on a daily basis. That way, Bigga Bush manages to turn his numerous world wide dj sets into something very special even more easily. 'Bigga on the decks' means great music, happy faces, dancing folks and lots of positive party vibes…

Glyn's ever growing fascination for and deep knowledge of the irresistible grooves & patterns hailing from South America and Africa add that certain extra feel and surplus kick to both his original music and his dj performances. A very organic musical fusion of vintage & new, north & south, slow & fast, east & west as well as analogue and digital: Bigga Bush has a lot to say in every way (see also his personal comments on the individual tracks of this selection at the bottom of this info).

With this crisp and unique selection now, Bigga once again showcases his rare gift and special ability to stay ahead of time both musically and spiritually. No big names or the usual compilation suspects found here: prepare yourself for a big bunch of hand picked, potential past & future classics from around the world in the mix instead! Almost two decades of dj skills as well as a brilliant taste and feel for musical moods definitely qualify the man to provide this ultimately soulful compilation, sure to be among the best and most interesting of not only this year. By including a string of exclusive mixes and reworks as well as incorporating various personal edits and special treatments, Bigga Bush easily manages to transform his vision of adult dancefloor and eclectic home listening into a highly inspirational, classy and very personal mixtape that others would definitely kill for… out now on Stereo Deluxe!

"This mix reflects my wide taste in music and my ever-expanding (free)style of DJing. You will hear the sort of tunes that make me want to make music and the type of tunes that make me want to dance. For me DJing is the meeting point of these two desires."
- Bigga Bush, Dorset/UK, Sept. 2005-

CD SD 123-2
Release date: 05.04.2004

The trademark BiggaBush vibe is likely to involve deep bass resonance, chattering percussion and strong melodic
themes. From the opening urgency of Outernational Anthem to the long prog build and G.RINA's soothing vocal intonations on Self Judgement this CD has got something for everyone. Dextrous harmonium and driving dhol drums underpin the swooping Mumbai strings of Michaelangelo. Throwdown lays a strident yet twisted riff over a gigantic rhythm interrupted by bass drum detonations and flick-of-the-wrist decknology from rising DJ Jay Rees. Sole Sister floats us off for a breather through a shimmering aquatic soundscape before This River drops the dub bass back into the mix and showcases the drifting, languorous voice of Sofiah Thom. Acid Fly buzzes by with phonic squelch and ricochet breaks landing squarely on a fat Chic-ed bassline. 'Deep Eastwood' spins its wheels with splashy snares and growling brass until at 2:30 the dubhousebassymayhem breaks free of the echo machine and rocks the floor with panache. This pandemonium leads into the Big Chill favourite IOTK a real 'where did that one come from?' cut with the biggest, baddest 3-Dimensional bass snaking its way around plucked harps and walking rhythms yet paradoxically leaving us with the distinct feeling of floating in space. Mouseflex is as nifty a piece ofambient dub as you're likely to get, an off the wall slice of rolling electronica with a catchy glitch which bounces the listener around on a cushion of air bass.

This is how the BiggaBush sound has been evolving for the past few years and a taste of where he's going next. An album which rounds 'em up and rolls'em out. Anyone who spends their time troubling dancefloors will find this
a truly useful bag of tools. Free up your speaker box Mr DJ!

Acid Fly
12"
SD 119
Release date: 02.02.2004

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the first single from ex-Rockers Hi Fi midi maestro Glyn Bush's forthcoming album 'BiggaBush Free'.

The opener 'Acid Fly' takes BiggaBush's early infatuation with all things 303 and gives it a brand-new spin over a superfunky live break mashed up through ever-mutating echo patterns. The track is a slow burner that suddenly bursts into flame with a repeated brass stab that works like an electric cattle-prod on any dancefloor stragglers. Just for good measure a generous burst of phaser guarantees that any last wallflowers will be up and shaking their booty to the live disco bass action by the end of the tune.

The Arcade version of album track 'Throwdown' follows with DJ Jay Rees pulling out his vintage games FX soundtrack battle weapons, scratching, blending and funking up the beats with a fine display of turntaballistics over a monster break.

On the flip is a rare treat: a remix of album epic 'Deep Eastwood' lovingly retouched by DJ Fitchie of Fat Freddy's Drop, now legendary for their haunting 'Midnight Marauders' tune of 2003.

This version sees Fitchie laying down a Rhythm & Sound-like groove which keeps heads nodding and paints the original's dub stylings a darker shade until some sparkling keyboard pyrotechnics inject a new layer of passion into the blend.

A fine 12" which sets out BiggaBush's stance in 2004, post-Rockers, post-Lightning Head; still full of the innovative combinations and dynamic grooves we have come to expect from the maestro.
