GLYN “BIGGA” BUSH
is an independent non-aligned producer, musician and DJ based in the South West of England. His two main projects BiggaBush and Lightning Head reflect his love of a huge range of musical styles and he has produced albums for various labels including Sonar Kollektiv and Stereo Deluxe as well as numerous remixes. He has also collaborated with Finnish musician Hanna Ylitepsa on progressive rock project The Black Albumen.
Through the 90s he was known for his work with Birmingham (UK) based Rockers Hi Fi, working with Richard “DJ Dick” Whittingham on a string of albums for Island, WEA and K7 records along with remixes for Ella Fitzgerald, Ennio Morricone, Sly & Robbie and many others.
Lion Head Recordings was set up in 2007 as the main vehicle for BiggaBush’s musical output, starting with “BiggaBush In Dub” and moving on to release his Lightning Head material. The label also handles the back catalogue of Rockers Hi Fi and side projects such as Airgoose, Moody White and Switchblade Sisters.
“Music By The Yard“ is a 2011 album from BiggaBush – 23 tracks of instrumental hip hop, incidental music, prog rock and library grooves.
BiggaBush’s DJing style is eclectic, taking in a wide spectrum of dance styles with the emphasis on un-formularized tunes and originality over familiarity – although he is always on the hunt for interesting cover versions and mashups.
In addition to DJing, he co-led the 25-piece percussion group, the Magic Drum Orchestra from 2005-2015, which played a wide range of grooves on traditional Brazilian samba instruments; their own take on afrobeat, hip hop, drum & bass, house and funk. Their first album “MDO” is available from Tru Thoughts and a new album is in the pipeline for 2018.
A new album “Sunken Foal Stories” is to be released on Lion Head/Schamoni Musik in 2018.
