Presenting Magic Drum Orchestra’s limited edition double A-side 7” of
“Original Nuttah feat. Bunty/Dread Nourishment”. Featuring a captivating
rework of the ragga-jungle classic “Original Nuttah” alongside the dubinfused
rhythms of “Dread Nourishment”, this release presents a glimpse
into the genre-spanning array of influences on offer in this thrilling new project.
Limited to 500 units.

Following a three year break, founding Magic Drum Orchestra member Glyn
“Bigga” Bush is back with a fresh take on MDO’s infectious attention-grabbing
beats. Built around the rule that every note had to come from a percussion
instrument, Glyn explores the core instrumental components of the Magic
Drum Orchestra in a studio setting. The result is an instinctive, beat-laden
album inspired by hip hop, grime, GQOM and R&B production and traditional
samba rhythms and styles.

”Original Nuttah feat. Bunty” is an irresistible, dance-filled percussive cover
that’s bound for the same success as MDO’s memorable hits like “Drop It Like
It’s Hot” and “Sunshine of your Love”. Glyn finds innovative ways to give new
life to Shy FX & UK Apachi’s ragga jungle classic; the high pitched drone of the
original is re-created on a singing bowl; the iconic bass-line is transferred to
Brazilian bass-drums called “surdos” and the jungle breaks are reproduced on
live drums. Bunty’s playful vocals lighten and feminise the rude boy anthem,
injecting what Glyn calls: “new life and vibes into a classic of the genre”.

Glyn’s back catalogue includes the notable house, dub and trip-hop band
Rockers Hi-Fi who released albums on Island and Warner and gained a
substantial following. More recently, following Rockers Hi-Fi’s success, Glyn
began concentrating on his own productions, remixing tracks for the likes of
Swayzak, Mark Rae, Fat Freddy’s DJ Fitchie; collaborating with Fela Kuti’s drummer,
the great Tony Allen to create the 2008 album ‘13 Faces of Lightning Head’.
