Big Boss Man released their debut album ‘Humanize‘ in 2001. Creating  a clear definition of the Big Boss Man sound – a hip Hammond hybrid of 60’s and 70’s drenched R’n’B, Funk, Latin, Jazz, Soul and Pop. Recently recut on LP due to demand around the release of their third album ‘Full English Beat Breakfast’

Since its release, tracks from the album have featured on numerous compilations albums. Many tracks from the album have been hugely successful with music placements in film, TV and advertising.  A selection of tracks from the album were used as the soundtrack to the BAFTA nominated short film “Sweet” which featured Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt of The Mighty Boosh. In 2009 the dancefloor killer that is ‘Sea Groove’ was used by the International Red Cross for a nationwide campaign in the USA. The original 7″  now being valued at £25 in the official Record Collector guide – although that’s if you can find one! It’s is long deleted.  ‘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.

Humanize was recently recut on vinyl due to demand around the release of their third album ‘Full English Beat Breakfast‘.
