Bongos Ikwue & The Double X / Prince Fatty Tell My Girl Bongos Ikwue, one of Nigeria's best-loved artists, returns with his first new recordings in twenty-five years with full dub/reggae overhauls by Brighton's, (& quite possibly the UK's), finest dub producers, Prince Fatty. Contemporary, but with native roots: a modern sound carved out of sturdy traditional stock. Little known outside his native land, in the 1970s Bongos Ikwue won the hearts of a generation with his warm, honeyed voice and self-penned songs of heartache and rectitude in a highly personal range of styles. While everyone else in West Africa was dressing sharp and relying on horns for punch, Bongos fronted his group The Groovies in jeans and casual shirts, touting an acoustic guitar. His preferred groove was neither militant Afrobeat nor swinging Highlife. Instead, he fashioned his own blend of Nigerian Soul from Spirituals, Country, Blues and Jazz - though you could still hear Africa in there, along with mandatory sizzling electric guitars.

Prince Fatty / Earl 16 Be Thankful For What You've Got Ft Earl 16 [RSD19] This is an exclusive release for Record Store Day 2019. Now available to online customers As a special treat for RSD, Prince Fatty has collaborated with UK Reggae heavyweight ‘Earl 16’ for this limited edition rework of William DeVaughn’s 1972 classic ‘Be Thankful For What You’ve Got’ on 7” vinyl. In true Prince Fatty style, he has included a Dub on the B Side, which will only be available on the 7” pressing (limited to 750 units world wide). The 1984 Reggae cover by Winston Curtis has become a collectors favourite (listing for up to $600) and without a repress in sight, Prince Fatty wanted to keep his version limited for those in the know. What better opportunity than to include it in the 2019 Record Store Day? During a late night recording session at the now legendary ‘Iron Works’ studio, Fatty was playing the original when Earl 16 walked into the control room and exclaimed that ‘Be Thankful For What You’ve Got’ was one of his all time favourite records. Fast forward an hour and Horseman (drums), Dianne White (bass) and Bubblers (keys) had laid down the instrumental ready for Earl 16’s performance - all captured live in one take! This was a truly organic recording by one of the UK’s top rhythm sections and needless to say their natural groove has done the original justice. Prince Fatty quoted this as “One of my favourite songs and a great record, having first heard it sampled in the 90s hip hop era the lyrics left a mark on me. In the current, over consuming world, the meaning resonates to me even louder. Recorded live in the studio analog style for the modern digital world!” Artwork has been supplied by Prince Fatty’s long-term collaborator jAKE in his unique hand drawn style.

Dele Sosimi / Prince Fatty / Nostalgia 77 You No Fit Touch Am In Dub A dub version could be a stone killer, predicted David Hutchison in his 4 star Mojo review of 'You No Fit Touch Am'. And here it is: Afrobeat icon Dele Sosimi's recent album gloriously re-imagined in dub by two production masters, Prince Fatty and Nostalgia 77. It was such a rush to have Prince Fatty and Nostalgia 77 work their magic on Dele's album. With Fatty bringing the spirit of 80s On-U Sound, Mikey Dread and Mad Professor, and Ben Nostalgia having mixed Dele's original LP, this was always going to be something very special.

Prince Fatty Get Ready (feat. Big Youth & George Dekker) ’Get Ready’ features Big Youth, George Dekker and captures the soulful and infectious grooves of the original, whilst also delving into a deep, easy-listening, rock-steady masterclass. The effortless falsetto of George Dekker makes for one of the smoothest hooks you’ll hear all year, not to mention the ever-reliable Deejay toasting of Big Youth and Horseman’s explosive percussive work. On producing the track, Prince Fatty added: ‘Get ready’ is a masterpiece of the time and for me, it’s perfection squeezed into 2 minutes, 45 seconds - having a vocalist like David Ruffin on backing vocals just tops the bill. If you follow Prince Fatty and the Horseman, you will know we love the rockers style of the late 70s. I wanted our version to have the Disco Mix feeling so I enlisted George Dekker from the Pioneers for the lead vocal. George’s range and falsetto are on the same level as Eddie Kendrick and Melvin Franklin which is no easy task, and I think he has delivered a great vocal. Balanced by the infamous Big Youth’s toasting “I have some children, but we can have some more!” Love is the message for those lucky enough to find it. People, its best you Get Ready!” Prince Fatty has worked with everyone from Lily Allen, Hollie Cook, Graham Coxon (Blur), Mungo’s HiFi, The Skints, Gregory Isaacs and many more. After moving from Brighton to live in Los Angeles and Thailand, he’s taken in different sounds from across the globe and has built up a reputation of being one of the go-to producers of recent times.
