Info

Norman Cook, better known as Fatboy Slim, is one of the most successful dance artists of all time. He's scored numerous international hits with his hook-heavy, party-friendly tracks (often accompanied by innovative, subversive music videos) and he remains one of the world's most in-demand DJs. Building on the sample-based sound of his previous projects (Beats International, Mighty Dub Katz), Cook helped usher in the mid-'90s big beat movement -- filled with boisterous breakbeats and pilfered guitar riffs, among other ear-catching sounds. His second album, 1998's You've Come a Long Way, Baby, contained four British Top Ten hits (led by "Praise You" and "Right Here, Right Now"), became a multi-platinum success, and earned notice as one of the year's most critically acclaimed albums. His popularity continued with 2000's collaboration-heavy Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars, in addition to mix albums like 2002's Live on Brighton Beach. Following 2004's relatively downbeat Palookaville, Cook formed the collaborative project Brighton Port Authority and also teamed with David Byrne for the 2010 concept album Here Lies Love. While more active as a DJ than a producer during the EDM boom of the 2010s, Fatboy continued sporadically releasing singles during the decade, scoring a major U.K. hit with 2013's "Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat."
