Fatis Tapes in the Oven’ is the first volume in an ongoing series from the extraordinary works of Philip ‘Fatis’ Burrell who founded Xterminator Productions. The collection of rare and unreleased tapes is curated by Fatis’s son, Kareem ‘Remus’ Burrell who was working very closely in the studio with his father, close to the time of Philip ‘Fatis’ Burrell’s untimely passing in 2011.
Fatis is most known for his productions with reggae giants: Sizzla, Luciano & Beres Hammond. Kareem has dug through his father’s old crates to unveil some rare alternate cuts of classics such as Luciano’s ‘Give Thanks’ from his classic album ‘One Way Ticket’ and Tanya Stephen’s ‘Tonight’. Kareem also discovered some treasures from relatively unknown artists such as ‘Jah Protect Me’ from Gott Yo & Judgement morning from Peter Franks. Of note is ‘Distance Away’ which was recorded in 1997 during the sessions for one Sizzla’s greatest albums, ‘Praise ye Jah’. XTM. Nation presents ‘Fatis: Tapes In The Oven’ Volume 1 will be available in all digital stores on March 30, 2018.
