Glyn "Bigga" Bush
is an independent non-aligned producer and DJ based in the South West of England. His two main projects BiggaBush and Lightning Head reflect his love of dub reggae, Brazilian rhythms and Afro-Cuban beats and he has produced two albums “Studio Don” (Best Seven/Sonar Kollektiv) and “BiggaBush Free” (Stereo Deluxe) as well as many remixes (Tapper Zukie, Tosca, Up Bustle & Out). His latest album project "13 Faces of Lightning Head" is a mix of afrobeat, deep funk, reggae and ethiopic grooves and is out on his own Lion Head Recordings label.
Lion Head was set up in 2007 as the main vehicle for BiggaBush's musical output. The label also reissues archive Rockers Hi Fi and side projects such as Airgoose, Moody White and the Switchblade Sisters.
BiggaBush's DJing style is eclectic, taking in virtually any style of music with the emphasis on original and un-formularised tunes, from jungle to boogaloo, from dubstep to breakbeat. He is a regular at the UK’s Big Chill festival and plays club dates across the globe, particularly in continental Europe, Japan and the USA.
In addition to DJing he leads a 14-piece percussion group, the Magic Drum Orchestra, which plays a wide range of grooves on traditional Brazilian samba instruments including afrobeat, hip hop, drum and bass and funk. Their first album "In the Studio" is out now on Lion Head Recordings. They are currently collaborating preparing for live dates with Achilles and Bass Clef.
Bush is also well-known for his decade long involvement in Rockers Hi Fi, Birmingham (UK)-based dub rockers who hung up their echo machines in 2000 having produced a string of albums for Island, Warners and K7 along with remixes for Ella Fitzgerald, Sly & Robbie, Ennio Morricone and many more.
