Been out of the blogosphere for sometime due to some unforeseen events and am just glad to be back once again with this simple tribute to one of my favorite DJs of all time.
Norman Quentin Cook (born Quentin Leo Cook, 16 July 1963), better known by his stage name Fatboy Slim is a British DJ, big beat artist, producer and pioneer of the electronic dance genre which achieved mainstream popularity in the 1990s. Cook has achieved considerable success in the UK charts, performing as Fatboy Slim and with his previous 80s New Wave band, The Housemartins, The Housemartins, and also electronic and acid jazz artists, Beats International and Freak Power. He currently performs as the Brighton Port Authority, which is also the newest alias for this multifaceted performer.
Here's a simple straight-up megamix of almost all of his hits (remixed by the world's top DJs/remixers), which I did some three months back. Another must-hear for any Fatboy Slim or dance music fan.
