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.

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 The Kingdom Of Dub Legendary modern reggae producer Prince Fatty teams up with funk & jazz specialist Nostalgia 77, editing some of his finest tracks from the last decade for this new project on Tru Thoughts.Prince Fatty works his magic here on a diverse repertoire that spans the last decade and has been lauded by everyone from Gilles Peterson to Cerys Matthews to The Guardian. The spiritual Afro-jazz of instrumental side-project Skeletons (2012) sits alongside the coolly subversive, r&b inflected “Rainclouds”, voiced by ‘60s icon Julie Tippett; current tracks from new album ‘A Journey Too Far’; and classic Nostalgia 77 cuts “Little Steps” and “Quiet Dawn” (both bearing the spun-sugar vocals of Beth Rowley) from 2007’s ‘Everything Under The Sun’. While all the above reworks were created especially for this release, the bonus track - a dub of “Zombie Dance Parts 1 & 2” by the live outfit Nostalgia 77 Octet - has been unearthed from the band’s first ever live recording session. “It showed us that the worlds of dub and jazz could clash with powerful results”, says Lamdin of the incendiary piece which still sounds fresh and vital today.
