The Big Bud sound has been influenced by over 30 years of listening to Jazz, funk, Soul and Reggae. From attending jazz funk all-dayers back in the eighties thru the big raves of the early nineties up to todays drum and bass clubs he has always been a lover of quality, soulful music. It was after hearing the emergence of tracks with breakbeats that he decided to get involved in producing…
After finishing his first tunes he took them up to seminal dnb club , Speed , and gave them to Fabio. The result was a 3 year stint with Creative Source, releasing a handful of singles. The next stop was Good Looking Records where he spent 5 years producing a steady stream of drum and bass and downtempo cuts. After parting company with them he had to endure a two year period of isolation due to contractual problems. These two years were spent in the studio, stockpiling tracks ready for release when the time was right.
