Big Boss Man 'Humanize' released on this day 20 years ago.

Released on this day 20 years ago the debut album from Big Boss Man Humanize.

Humanize displayed a clear definition of the Big Boss Man sound – a hip Hammond hybrid of 60’s R’N’B, Latin, Soul, Bongo-Fuzz and Funk.  

Humanize was the first of four albums recorded and released for Blow Up Records; Humanize, Winner, Full English Beat Breakfast, Last Man On Earth.

The album was preceded by the dancefloor killer 45 that is ‘Sea Groove‘, it was the bands first single and is now much sort after release. The track has remained hugely popular over the years, with it currently amassing over 5 million Spotify streams. Whilst it was used by the International Red Cross for a nationwide campaign in the USA.

Party 7‘ was also picked up in 2006 for Nike’s Worldwide World Cup ‘JOGA TV’ campaign featuring Thierry Henry and Eric Cantona and was subsequently reissued backed by ‘Kelvin Stardust’ the lead cut from BBM’s second album Winner as a limited 45.

Tracks from Humanize were used as soundtrack to the BAFTA nominated short film “Sweet” which featured Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt of The Mighty Boosh. With the bands music continuing to prove popular with TV, film and advertising placements, most recently with The Grand Tour (Amazon) and Russian film comedy Hotel Eleon in Sochi.
