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.

Prince Fatty Sunshine feat. Omar & Fatlip This is an exclusive release for Record Store Day 2018. Everyone loves the sunshine! And everyone loves to be surprised when the sequal does the original justice. Sometimes the fear rises when you hear a version has been made of a classic record, but this unlikely trio have exceeded those doubts and done Roy Ayres a justice. Soon as you hear it being played, you feel as bright as the vibe that shone at its release in 1976, on Polydor records. For this Record Store Day exclusive 7”, Prince Fatty has put together a stellar cast of collaborators, including legendary reggae rhythm section - Horseman & Mafia as well as Bubblers on Keys, with vocals by the immortal ‘Fatlip’ from LA Hip Hop legends ‘The Pharcyde’ and UK Soul royalty ‘Omar’. Prince Fatty who has been compared to ‘Lee Scratch Perry’, has an infamous vintage analog sound that can be heard on his productions with artists such as Lilly Allen and Manu Chau, to London’s rising star, Hollie Cook. Omar has an MBE! But may prefer to be better known for hits such as ‘Man in the Mirror’ and ‘Dogs Like Cats’. ‘Fat Lip’ made hip hop legendary status in his group The Pharcyde, who need no introduction. With this limited run (1000 black vinyl only) 7” rework of this classic, in true Prince Fatty style, was recorded live, with no additional programming and no overdubs. Mixed in Prince Fatty’s sunshine studio in Siracha Thailand, this reggae version of Roy Ayres 'Everybody Loves the Sunshine' is a must buy! It’s ‘soulful, dubby and poetic’ A real treat!
