Prince Fatty Biography

Prince Fatty is a group put together by producer and engineer Mike Pelanconi, (whose recent credits include Lilly Allen's smash ‘Alright Still’ for Regal/EMI and ‘Little Barrie’ Stand your Ground for Genuine/PIAS) for the purpose of recording a limited-edition single for Stussy to celebrate their 25th anniversary.

Ninas Dance’ became an underground smash, enjoying 8 plays on Radio 1, and by popular demand Mr Bongo secured Fatty's recording services for the follow up album titled ‘Survival of the Fattest’.

The Prince Fatty sound is designed to Dub your feet with Rock Steady beats and stimulate brain waves in a jazz-like way...delivered in an up-beat, positive and organic funk fashion. Mixed in an analog haze of vintage spring reverbs, tape echoes and custom hi-grade mixing console, Prince Fatty won’t disappoint the lovers of the early 70s sound. Prince Fatty is champion in the Dub Arena.
With 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 with the Nostalgia 77 Horn Section and with special guest vocals from Little Roy, Winston Francis and Hollie Cook, the new vocalist for the band ‘The Slits’.
