BiggaBush Special Mix

Tracks from now and then including the Melody & Electronics EP on mixcloud

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
