Prince Fatty / Shniece

Black Rabbit


Most recently dispatched: 4 January

Prince Fatty and Shniece McMenamin have been relentlessly flexing their studio muscles lately, dropping a whole host of projects consistently for your listening pleasure. Next up is a psych-reggae anthem that goes by the name of "Black Rabbit", a cover of Jefferson Airplane's 1967 classic "White Rabbit".  Available on a  7" housed in a picture sleeve, with a killer dub version on the flip.

After featuring on Prince Fatty's 'In The Viper's Shadow' album last year, Shniece has played a key role in Fatty's productions ever since. They have covered Kraftwerk's 'The Model,' Tom Browne's 'Funkin' For Jamaica' and also worked together on Shniece's highly acclaimed debut EP 'Disco Deception.'

A real journey of a record, "Black Rabbit" features 60s mind bending guitar, trippy samples from a public service broadcast on drugs, plenty of delay and reverb with a heavy pounding hypnotic backbeat. With Shniece's vocals taking on the melody, this is euphoric dub at its finest.

On creating the record, Prince Fatty added: "A tough arrangement is always good in the studio and risks tend to bring dub rewards. Reborn as Black Rabbit in a down tempo twist featuring the immaculate Shniece McMenamin on vocals."

Between them, Prince Fatty and Shniece McMenamin have worked alongside some of music's most respected names. Their collaborative efforts span from Blur's Graham Coxon to Lily Allen, Hollie Cook, The Last Poets, The Skints and Mungo's Hi-Fi. They've also received heavy radio support from David Rodigan, Craig Charles and Don Letts to name a few. It's becoming more and more apparent that this duo has an inimitable energy that shines through on every single release.
