Feedback on this release :

"Bigga Bush's label never fails to deliver and this compilation is packed with sure fire crowd pleasers. Love it." - Tim Love Lee, Boy Scout Recordings
"Yes man! Crucial tracks abound on the Lionhead Compilation. Some greats getting spins and radio plays with me currently include "East Africa Dub Stylee" -- wicked sounds and rhythms there, and "Sick State," one of the best Afrobeat/Afropop inspired tracks I've heard in a while. And god, the acoustic "Push Push" version is absolute magic. Basically this comp is all killer no filler, an amazing 12 track journey around the globe with dub and bass as your guide and heartbeat pulse." - Tomas Palermo, XLR8R
