Boisterous, organic and energetic from Prince Fatty and friends.

Sampler

On acclaimed sound engineer and producer Prince Fatty’s third album – the weirdly titled 'Prince Fatty Versus the Drunken Gambler' – there’s a hell of a party going on from start to finish. To the party he has invited guests Hollie Cook, Horseman, George Dekker, Dennis Alcapone and Winston Francis to handle microphone duties.

Prince Fatty Versus The Drunken GamblerThe ten tracks are heavily influenced by reggae from the late 60’s and early 70’s and offer a mix of originals and fun and dazzling cover choices, including the excellent For Me You Are, a version of The Andrew SistersBei Mir Bist du Schon, Got Your Money, originally by the late Ol’Dirty Bastard and Kelis, and Max Romeo’s rude and lewd Wet Dream.

To spice things up further Prince Fatty utilizes a dub mixing style with lots of effects as well as  wild and crazy samples from different movies.

This 30 minutes long disc is fun and clever, and you’ll continue to be amazed and surprised by the arrangements and the live played backing even after several spins.

Prince Fatty has with his previous albums and productions set a high standard, and happily enough he manage to both live up to and excel expectations.
