His Mush releases consist of 3 albums and 1 EP. In 2009 he signed to Warp records and so far has released a further 2 albums, an EP containing remix contributions from other artists and several singles. Bibio's music combines electronic and acoustic/traditional instruments, his main instrument being guitar. Bibio's signature 'grainy' sound is partly due to the use of analogue tape and vintage recording equipment, which is more exaggerated in his earlier Mush releases.
Wilkinson himself labeled his debut on Mush as "Saturated Folk". Bibio's recent output, particularly on Warp, has been more diverse, with an increasing use of his own vocals, drums/beats and electronics. His Mush debut 'Fi' was described by Marcus Eoin of Boards of Canada as: "The antidote to the modern laptopia of pristine electronic music...". In 2009, Bibio contributed a cover version of Boards of Canada's 'Kaini Industries' to the Warp 20th Anniversary 'Recreated' album.
