b. Raymond McCook, 1961, Jamaica, Western Indies. Naptali spent his formative years in Jamaica, where he observed the extraordinary rise of Dennis Alcapone, Big Youngsters, I. Roy and U-Roy. By the first 70s, he and his family members had settled in the united kingdom, where, inspired from the audio systems, he steadily developed his reputation like a DJ with Fatman Hi there Fi. In 1980, the duo of Raymond And Roy documented the traditional ‘Late Night time Blues’ using the Instigators, and Naptali embarked on the prolific recording profession, including Anthony ‘Sir George’ Brightly’s creation of ‘Dirty Rat’ and ‘ABC’, and with Clive Stanhope, the favorite ‘Mr Talkative’ and ‘Auto Increase’. Fatman created the reggae Top 10 strike ‘Love Snare/No TALK WITH Credel’, which also highlighted backing with the Instigators, with vocals from Cornell Campbell. Although his documented result tapered off, he produced a dramatic reappearance in 1996 when he performed on the Bunny Wailer Unity Display, alongside Chaka Demus And Pliers, Spanner Banner and Prince Lincoln. In 1997, Naptali continuing to appear using the renowned Fatman, executing at London’s illustrious Dub Membership as Fatman And Sons ON THE Handles With Raymond Naptali.
