LP version. 2015 release. Pastafari Dub is the debut album by Miss Fritty with dubs by Joe Ariwa. It's a kind of "linguistic experiment" that comes from the desire to link the Italian/Apulian culture and the Jamaican one in terms of music, cuisine and everyday life. The result is a "melting pot" of slang - Italian and English - on roots reggae rhythms, extending the Apulian dialect to a wider audience. The voice of Miss Fritty and the dub of Joe Ariwa, son of the well-known producer Mad Professor, come together in a special sounds that gives to the typically British roots rock reggae sound an Apulian flavor, creating a connection between the two cultures. The soft atmospheres of the songs are the fulcrum around the entire album, the sensuality of the sound gives to the project a distinctly "woman touch". This is not a concept album, but the "woman" is at the center of the project. The album also contains the single "Maphia" where Miss Fritty duets with Michael Prophet, roots reggae veteran well-known for his "crying" tenor voice. The producer of the project is the famous Mad Professor, a prominent figure among dub musicians which has collaborated with world-renowned artists like Lee "Scratch" Perry, Sly and Robbie, Horace Andy and Pato Banton and, outside the confines of the Jamaican music, the British duo Massive Attack. The work was mainly done in London at Ariwa Studios Ltd, under the supervision of Joe Ariwa, Mad Professor and other well-known musicians such as Black Steel and Horseman that give to the album an organic and unique sound. The poetic inspiration for the lyrics came to Miss Fritty when she was travelling between London and Bari.
