Fat Habit


Fat Habit – The Band Fat Habit is made up of producer/keyboards Marky ‘LV' Child, drummer and all-round ‘Energiser Bunny’ Steve Burkwood, and rapper/vocalist & wordsmith Tosin ‘T-man’ Olomowewe. The Fat Habit Story Fat Habit formed out of necessity. It was early 2005, drum 'n' bass lacked live acts, pop sensibility and catchy melodies; all things that were present in early nineties music. Marky wanted to re-live the music of his youth – stomping basslines with an electro edge and addictive hooks – music you could rave to.

Fat Habit – The Band Fat Habit is made up of producer/keyboards Marky ‘LV' Child, drummer and all-round ‘Energiser Bunny’ Steve Burkwood, and rapper/vocalist & wordsmith Tosin ‘T-man’ Olomowewe. The Fat Habit Story Fat Habit formed out of necessity. It was early 2005, drum 'n' bass lacked live acts, pop sensibility and catchy melodies; all things that were present in early nineties music. Marky wanted to re-live the music of his youth – stomping basslines with an electro edge and addictive hooks – music you could rave to. He locked himself away to get the creative juices flowing. Six months, and a six-inch beard later, the first single ‘Boogieman’, inspired by the patriarch of a famous yellow family, was born.  Working initially with guest vocalist Natalie Long, Marky built on Boogieman’s success by recording Fat Habit's debut album, Ridge Sessions. The hard work paid off; gigs and recognition followed, and a whole new generation discovered the sound of the Habit. In 2007, Marky took stock in a hotel room in New Zealand and developed a new, fresher, harder sound; utilising Fat Habit's unique melodic 'signature'. On his return, the search began…the search for the illusive drummer. Luckily for Marky, Steve appeared. Out of a lamp. They began recording, and had their inaugural gig. But even though the tunes were rockin' the crowd to the core, something was missing. Just when they seemed like a juggernaut two-piece missing a wheel, fate took a stand and destined them to be a mighty trio.... Lady Luck had waved her wand on the way to the gig; the Energiser Bunny's Nissan now lay in pieces by the roadside. He begged a bed for the night. The next morning, while travelling on the capital's finest transport system – that's the tube to you and me – he heard an angel singing. Light emanated from the other side of the carriage. He saw a vision known as Tosin. Maybe it was luck. Maybe it was fate. Tosin just thanked his lucky stars. One telephone audition later, the line-up became complete. Now writing and recording their new album, the Fat Habit story continues apace... “The grand finale saw crowds of moving people gather protectively around the bandstand. Their encore left a superb last impression. Dance music inspired.” “It's far superior to the trashy Europop and cheesy vocal dance that fills the charts and the dance floors on a weekly basis" Past gigs include: Unit 7 cable street, The Rhythm Factory, Concorde2 Brighton, Blueprint Club Nottingham, BCSU Union, Faceparty.com, Capital Radio Help a London Child, Tunbridge Wells Forum, Southampton University, Reading University… Read more on Last.fm.
