  23. i had the immense pleasure of seeing bigga bush dj’ing in l.a. and he flat out rocked the place! it was the BEST dj set i have seen/ heard.
    needless to say he blew everyone away with his bass-heavy, dub-ragga-batucada riddims. he is not only a prolific producer/dj, but one of the nicest, kindest, most down-to-earth people i have ever met in this business! if he is stopping in your city, go check it out!

    also, dj chicken george rocks! check his website and buy his mix-cds!

  24. i cant get enough of this set!! 3rd time and i am late to meet my friends!!! it absof*ckinlutely rocks!!

    bigga, if you are out there reading this, and i think you soon will (((wink wink))), would you post your set list for us poor souls drooling over it? i recognized many of the tunes, but there are those ones i could only find through you.

    thanx + much love!!

  35. well, fear not. here is the set bigga bush did for kcrw before he dj’ed at transistor lounge in l.a. it is a much mellower, more downtempo kinda set, but really nice as well with an interview where you get to hear him talking about his experience with the rockers hi-fi, his influences, music idols, what dub and reggae means to him, etc.

    and yes!!! he is coming back to dj in the states in november!!! most likely he will be playing in d.c., nyc, and the west coast!! as soon as i know more details of his next tour and when the dates and cities are confirmed i’ll post here.
