Fatboy Slim

Not many DJs have the ability to crossover from underground to mainstream and back again the way that Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim has. Known for popularising the big beat genre, the rest of Cook’s resume is formidable: a Grammy, 9 MTV Awards, a number one album, and numerous number one hits are just a few of his career achievements.

Cook has performed through the technical revolution in the DJ industry over his three-decade career, seeing DJs move from vinyl to CDJs towards digital vinyl systems, and now controllers. But for Cook connecting with the crowd is paramount and a desire to grow his live show saw him add Serato Video to his performance. The result is a spectacle you have to experience for yourself.

Fatboy Slim talks about his early days in punk, why he ditched vinyl, and how a simplistic approach is best.
