Our History 

Launched in 2012 BBP Records was launched by Rich Wigley & Phil Legg to release initially one record that they made together after finding themselves working together in a new job after being made redundant from there music industry jobs and thrust together entirely accidentally at there new place of work, They both decided they should make a track and ‘Hyperspace’ was released under the name ‘Bonus brothers’ released on ‘Dead By Dawn Rercords’  They choose the name ‘Bonus’ due the place of work offering little in the way of rewards in the annual bonus, they decided they should make there own ‘bonus’ opportunity via music!  Phil shortly after that moved to the coast and retired but Rich Wigley carried on with the label and has released over 36 tracks and 2 albums since, in late 2012 Bonus Radio was conceptualised by Rich as a add-on to the label to help promote the music on the label, and in 2020 Bonus magazine was added after initially being a blog.

Phil still writes music and scores and composes his own music on his own labels of early 20th century piano music and specialist pianola recreation of rare piano rolls(the original MIDI!) having had a hugely and record breaking successful career as in some of Londons top theatres and productions.

Rich has worked extensively in sound and light and in film & TV production working as a technician/repair/installation and repair and has also been involved in many underground radio stations as a DJ & operator/owner/technician and of course as a house music DJ & music producer.
