When we started GCASFM Hospital Radio, we didn't know if the music world would hear our cries above the reverb from the speakers! How wrong we were, the response has been great and it gives us the pleasure to introduce an exceptional Dj/Producer in the shape of Mr Bird. Someone who is making some great sounds at BBE Music and has donated an EXCLUSIVE mix.
Steve Bird AKA Mr Bird is a musician, producer & DJ, based in Lisbon, Portugal. Mr Bird has released 4 albums and many other digital releases, including the latest album 'Low-Fi Classics' which was released by BBE Music in July 2014. A collaboration with singer Greg Blackman, it received strong support from radio and DJs worldwide, including Craig Charles, Jazzie B, Omar and many more.
In 2013, he released the 3rd Mr Bird LP, imaginatively titled "Bird Bird Bird" on the Vital Force label. He has also released two 7" singles on Resense Records and Lisboa Records with Portuguese producer Dedy Dread, as well as 5 vinyl releases on the Heavy Duty Booty label and several digital releases on his own 'Fat Bird Sounds' label.
In 2001 & 2007 Mr Bird released 2 instrumental hip-hop albums for the Brighton based labels 'Hertz Recordings' and 'Frequent Soundz.'
