BiggaBush : Bigga's Big Dig - John, I'm Only Trying To Contact Aliens

BiggaBush : Bigga's Big Dig - John, I'm Only Trying To Contact Aliens

Chart positions

This show was 21st in the global lounge chart, 31st in the global electronic chart, 38th in the global world chart, 57th in the global ambient chart and 67th in the global chillout chart.

"Anyone who has seen the Netflix documentary "John Was Trying To Contact Aliens" will I'm sure have been impressed not only by his incredible record collection and his determination over many years to beam this music to outer space - but also by his gentle manner and the love story which unfolds towards the end of the short film.

As soon as I saw it I wanted to check out the music on the soundtrack, which was already in playlist form on Spotify

...then I went back into the doc and tried to freezeframe and spot as many records as possible.

Eventually I had a list of tracks and artists and once I'd researched around this I had enough material for a two-hour mix: John, I'm Only Trying To Contact Aliens. I added in some voiceover material from Carl Sagan's Cosmos and the Man Who Fell To Earth as well as my regular MC Farda P's usual interjections and cuts from DJ Jay Rees."
