A scarily tasty dub album from Hollie Cook.

Sampler

One of last year’s many musical highlights was Hollie Cook’s truly enjoyable self-titled debut album recorded under the tutelage and supervision of the mighty Mike Pelanconi aka Prince Fatty, a British producer and engineer specialized in old school recording techniques.

Hollie Cook in DubPrince Fatty has now dubbed her debut album to the bone with extra bass and echo-laid instrumentation and Hollie Cook’s enchanting and dreamy vocals floating in and out of the mix.

'Prince Fatty Presents Hollie Cook in Dub' has a slightly different track listing compared to the original album and adds fascinating versions of swing harmony singing group The Andrew SistersBei Mir Bist du Schon [For Me You Are Dub] and The Whispers’ funky disco hit And the Beat Goes On along with her own already made classics Milk & Honey and That Very Night.

The dub versions of the tracks highlight some of the instrumentation that was in the background on the original vocal versions. You are hit by pounding percussion, smooth organ work, fine-tuned melodica and beautiful horn arrangements.

Prince Fatty has yet again managed to put out another scorcher, and even though this album is made with vintage recording and mixing equipment and techniques its ideas and influences are very much forward-thinking.

'Prince Fatty Presents Hollie Cook in Dub' is available on CD, LP and digital download. Go get yourself a copy now.
