MC, promoter, label owner and cheeky DJ on the sly… Fatman D is a man of many talents.
Like a lot of masters of ceremonies, he picked up the mic through pure necessity; eager to get into the game but unable to invest in turntables and tunes at the time, he started putting pen to paper. Mentored by good friend Stevie Hyper D (RIP), those early lyrical scribbles became formidable hype lines that scored Fatman early residencies at two of the most legendary rave brands; One Nation and Helter Skelter.
A versatile host flexing numerous styles – high energy, reggae twist, ragga, double time, rap – his rise to the top was as fast and as furious as the music itself. The late 90s was a golden time for MCs establishing their key role in drum & bass and Fatman secured his place in rave history both as a solo artist and as battle maestro with fellow lyrical luminary Foxy, forming the mighty New Breed outfit. Still a huge force to be reckoned with, New Breed remains one of the most notorious MC/DJ performance outfits as Fatman and Foxy are joined by Majistrate, Rekless, Dazzler, Herbzie, Evil B, Eksman and Shortston.
