Fatman Hifi is a Sound System from Tottenham, North London. Fatman, real name Ken Gordon, moved from the Waterhouse area of Kingston to the UK in 1962. Initially he worked with Sir Fanso before forming his own Sound System in 1974, initially it was called Wild Bells and then Imperial Downbeat before finally settling on the name Fatman.


The selector from the sounds start to the early 80's was Ribs (Robert Fearon), when he left Fatman Ribs formed Unity Hifi. By 1977 the sound had residencies at Club Noriek on Seven Sisters Road, the Nightingale in Tottenham and Phebes in Stoke Newington, all in North London. In the same year Fatman also opened a record shop in West Green Road, Tottenham.


In the early 80's MC's Raymond Naptali and Roy Ranking were regulars on the sound and were releasing records on Fatmans KG Imperial Record label.
