New BiggaBush vinyl on its way

Melody & Electronics EP

BiggaBush releases a new EP on vinyl and digital download in April 2017 on the Jahmoni label.

Harking back to the bass-heavy dubwiser days of Rockers Hi Fi it also gives Bigga’s take on post-dubstep beats and unashamedly delights in the sounds of classic machines like the Roland 808 and 303 along with his trademark live percussion, vocal interjections and cavernous reverbs.

Check out the Melody & Electronics preview on soundcloud

Both formats are available on bandcamp


 

Some early reactions to the Melody & Electronics EP

 

This is killer!

Tim “Love” Lee, Tummy Touch

Great to hear some new music from Bigga Bush! A snappy, spacey, bubbling delight, forward looking music with deep roots & a great sense of fun. Heavy support from me.

Mr. Scruff

Great to see bigga bush return with a new ep on Jahmoni Records, the dubbadelic department of munichs Schamoni Records. right man, right place.
Klaus Walter, Byte FM

Intricate, dark electronics on a dub excursion with superbly executed beats
Alan Gubby, Buried Treasure Records

The original Rocker’s HiFi heavy bass vibe transferred into 2017. whoosh. fast forward vibes. full support.

Michael Rütten, Soulsearching

There’s few people who get me as excited about their new music as Glyn “Bigga”, the way his creativity adapts a rootsy background to modern sound palettes is exemplary and a proof that age and experience is a status on his own. Mangrove Monkey is an amazing double tempo club challenge, a real treat for the intrepid DJ; the heavy bass dub of Sounds And Blues is unmistakeable Rockers’ textbook dub, Dash Way Com is all UK Jamaica with smart harmonic details on the chords and arps, Footsy Index is dub techno made to go even further in tension and sound as it’s sharp production contrasts with genre’s usual lo fi textures… delay heaven.
DJ Kaspar, Lisbon

GIVE IT A REALLY GOOD from me!!

Mat the Alien, Really Good Records, Vancouver Island

Beautifully executed
Dom Servini, Wah Wah 45s

Love it, trippy and dubby. The production sounds great!
Benua Carles

Biggabush continues to explore the off kilter blippy side of dub.  “Melody & Electronics” steps deep and dark in fresh new directions with “Mandrake Monkey” and “Sounds and Blues” claiming big thumbs up from yours truly!
Eric Tucker DJ Wiseacre, LA

Love it.   Comes across at times as a bit of a tribute to the golden age of dubstep, which of course I like. Also brings to mind Rhythm & Sound which is also a good thing in my book. It’s pretty out there though, especially the first and last tracks, neither of which sound quite like anything else I’ve heard.
Dan Bernstein/Johnny Clash

Biggabush in “pure essence”
Enrique Domenech

As ever a pretty wicked collection. I’m loving this

Music By The Yard – BiggaBush

BiggaBush’s latest album is available to download through bandcamp.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT “MUSIC BY THE YARD”

Really digging the tracks”   Tim “Love” Lee, Tummy Touch

An interesting and rewarding listen”   Rob Luis, Tru Thoughts

“The kind of intelligent music one expects from Bigga Bush, and doesn’t hear often enough elsewhere.”   DJ Sep, Dubmission San Francisco

Great job at creating a 23 track album that flows together so well as parts of a cohesive work while remaining dynamic and evolving throughout. In some ways it sounds like a soundtrack to the movie of one of those unexpected ‘best nights of your life’, with Steve McQueen in the lead.

Thoughts of Chairman Nao has been in heavy rotation”  Joe Rice, Justice League Sound System, SF

“Music by the yard, beats by the pound, tunes by the river bank! A veritable cornucopia of crucial cuts and nuggety … er nuggets. Its like an assorted choc box of Under My Glyn Tings but they’re all different and all your favourite flavour”  Jim Pinckney, Stinky Grooves 95bFM NZ

Just …. WOW for the new album. Turkish/Goblin/Library/Sabbath-riffing-tastic!”   Phil Jones, Polish Jazz Radio, Warsaw, Poland

Really cool music, per usual! I’m really enjoying the grooves   Velanche Stewart,Urban Landscapes radio show, San Luis Obispo, CA, USA

“Great news, great sounds… eclectic & rich as expected. Will defo play out the slower jams on my Balearic radio shows the next weeks…congrats & good to have you back!”   George Solar, Radio Illa 25 Formantera, Ibiza Sonica, Spain

Diggin’ it big time. Deliciously surprising. Love its’ psychedelic feel!!”   Borja, Lovemonk Recordings, Spain

Real nice music”  Daniel Haaksman, Man Recordings, Berlin

This is an amazing album, the problem is the huge amount of music on it makes it hard to pay the attention it deserves. Truly astonishing work, I’m very impressed by the incredible mixing, and how rich and crunchy, warm and detailed the elements all sound. I need a week to go through everything.DJ Kaspar, Groovement, Portugal

Sounds great”  Jason Bentley, KCRW, LA

Since I love HipHop, and especially good beats, I love this album.”  Marcus Maack, Vinylizer Wobwob, Hamburg

All over the place in the very best NOW kind of way. Jamming all the right and wrong buttons down at the same time and making a glorious post-everything noise.  Ace.”  Ollie Cherer, Dollboy, UK
