Prince Fatty

The Model

    On this limited edition 7" production heavyweight Prince Fatty puts his own unique signature stamp on Kraftwerk's 1978 electro masterclass 'The Model,' with a helping hand from vocalist Shniece McMenamin and Drummer / MC Horseman. Includes a killer dub remix on the flip.

    Renowned for his collaborations with reggae and dub royalty, Prince Fatty's reworking of 'The Model' maintains the essence of the original but with a smooth rock-steady twist. Replicating the famous synth melody on a rumbling bass groove, the foundations are laid for Shniece McMenamin's impeccable vocal performance and Horseman's experimental percussive rolls to flourish. With infectious rhythm, the song moves effortlessly from start to finish and takes you on a euphoric journey of musical heritage.

    On producing the track Prince Fatty added: "This one always takes people by surprise, The Model by Kraftwerk is a undercover roots rockers classic - Synthesiser melodies and echoes blend as one in sound system harmony with a sweet lovers rock vocal by Shniece and MC Horseman's signature Rub a Dub Style - enjoy!"

      Renowned for flexing his studio muscle with some of the freshest and versatile dub sounds around, Prince Fatty’s blending old-school reggae with his own eccentric, futuristic twist, have turned industry heads for decades and ‘In the Viper’s Shadow’ is no exception. This album is 10 tracks of reggae goodness, produced to perfection in a melting pot of influences that span from multiple eras and stretch to just about every corner of the planet. Prince Fatty has worked with everyone from Lily Allen, Hollie Cook, Graham Coxon (Blur), Mungo’s HiFi, The Last Poets, The Skints, Gregory Isaacs to name a few.

      After moving from Brighton to live in Sao Paulo, Los Angeles and Thailand, he’s taken inspirational sounds from across the globe and has built up a reputation of being one of the go-to producers of recent times. With a knack for selecting the perfect collaborators, whether it’s an up and coming artist or a genre-defining hero, his ability to showcase foundation laying percussion skills, mesmerising vocalists, bass-heavy triumphs and everything in between has resulted in some of the most expressive sounds around, and ‘In The Viper’s Shadow’ is the perfect example of his commitment to the cause.

      Get Ready Ft. 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.
