The Magic Drum Orchestra is a 20+ piece percussion group led by Glyn “Bigga” Bush and Ralph Cree. After nearly 10 years and 100 different drummers the band have recently signed to Brighton-based label Tru Thoughts, on which their first EP “MDO Sessions 1” is released on 10 March.
The EP features their ultra-heavy version of Benga’s dubstep anthem “Crunked Up” along with live showstopper “Drop It Like A Funky Muppet” (based on Snoop Dogg and Pharrell Williams’ hip hop classic) along with stunning original material.
All drums. (With bells and whistles)…
The first BiggaBush solo album after the demise of Rockers Hi Fi was “BiggaBush Free”, originally released on Stereo Deluxe in 2004. The album title stems from a desire to break away from some of the conventions and habits of the normal Bush working method and produce some fresh sounds. Still sounding fresh after 10-years, its anniversary is marked by a digital re-issue available via bandcamp.
This month’s mix is a hefty slab of 70s library funk, Bollywood horror soundtracks, Ethio-jazz, Sade on cough syrup and psych-rock. Leavened with the usual selection of instrumental beats and hip hop, some balls-out spaghetti western dubstep and dub poetry and topped off with some sweet Indonesian pop.
