Prince Fatty is producer and engineer Mike Pelanconi, whose credits include Lilly Allen's smash hit Alright Still for Regal/EMI and Little Barrie's Stand Your Ground for Genuine/PIAS.
The group was originally formed for the purpose of recording a limited-edition single for Stussy to celebrate their 25th anniversary. The track, titled Nina's Dance, became an underground smash, enjoying multiple plays on BBC Radio 1, and by popular demand the we secured Fatty's recording services for a follow up album titled Survival Of The Fattest.
Prince Fatty's sound, delivered in an upbeat, positive
and organic funk fashion, is designed to dub your feet with rock steady
beats while stimulating brain waves in a jazz-like way. Mixed in an
analogue haze of vintage spring reverbs, tape echoes and a custom high
grade mixing console, Prince Fatty's music won't disappoint lovers of
the early 70s dub sound.
Survival Of The Fattest is Fatty's first album and boasts a guest line-up that includes legendary drummer Style Scott from the Roots Radics, Hammond organ by Bubblers from the infamous Ruff Cut Band, Afrobeat star Bukky Leo on sax alongside the Nostalgia 77 horn section and special guest vocals from Little Roy, Winston Francis and Hollie Cook.
