Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is my favourite FFD album to be honest. The styles mix seamlessly and the lyrics are so strong and honest. You can feel what they're saying, and hear an amazing album from start to end. Can't go wrong with this one. As per Mighty Ape, I've bought from them countless times, never one single issue, 100% recommended.


This is a limited edition 2LP set of the ‘The Big BW’ album by Fat Freddy's Drop on Vinyl.

So you would have thought that, when it came to recording ‘The Big BW’, the follow-up, main-man, producer and beat-master Mu, born Chris Faiumu, aka DJ Fitchie, and his band-mates would have felt the pressure to live up to the praise heaped on ‘Based on a True Story’ – in the UK, The Observer called their debut “a slow-burn winner” while The Guardian chipped in with “transcendental”.

This upbeat outlook also informs the group's sound and is reflected in the sunny, reggae-infused “Pull The Catch”. According to Toby, “It was written a few years ago when we were travelling in the South Island, staying near Dallas' hometown Rakautara. One morning, a few of the band dragged themselves out of bed and went out before dawn on a fishing boat with Dallas' uncle. When they came back from the ocean they were singing this song. We had a studio set up in a little house at the beach and we recorded the demo that very day.”
