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 R’N’B, Latin, Soul, Bongo-Fuzz and Funk. The album was last recut on vinyl LP around the release of their third album ‘Full English Beat Breakfast’.

The album contains and was preceded by the dancefloor killer that is ‘Sea Groove‘, the bands first single and now much sort after on vinyl 45. The track has remained highly popular for the band over the years, with it currently amassing over 5 million Spotify streams. 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.

 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. The bands music from the album has continued to prove popular with TV, film and advertising placements, most recently with The Grand Tour (Amazon).
