Glynn "Bigga" Bush is the man behind the Lightning Head and BiggaBush aliases, as well as one half of Rockers Hi Fi. He is currently putting out his own releases on his own label, Lion Head Recordings. If you were not lucky enough to discover his recent releases The 13 Faces of Lightning Head or Studio Don records (which I highly recommend you cop along with the more Minimal but very deep BiggaBush in Dub), this compilation will help you get caught up with Bush's massive output of dub-inflected Afro-beat, funk, reggae and Samba influenced electronic dance music.
The track "Me and My Princess" gets a lot of people's attention in the club everytime I drop it: swinging beat, toasting MC, funky Clavinet line, minimal but effective. All of Bush's output is consistent in quality no-matter how diverse the styles might be. Lion Head Volume 1 is a crucial record, if you want to dig deeper, check out BiggaBush's website where he has links to many podcasts, cds, and exclusives.
