Norman Cook, whose stage name is Fatboy slim, is one of the best known dance music and rhythm DJs.
However, he hasn’t made any new music lately because of the lack of limitations of modern drum machines. Not being able to make simple music with simple music technology has been daunting for the musician.
Some of his main hits of the time are
- praise you
- gangster tripping
- The Rockafellar Skank
- Weapon of Choice
- Right Here, Right Now
- Bird of Prey
- Don’t let the man get you down
Little is known about his personal life, except that he was married to Zoé Ball in 1999, but divorced in 2016 after having 2 children. He has been in the music industry from 1979 to the present and is English, born in 1963.
After a long break since he last released music in 2018 when he released a remix album of his previous work Fatboy Slim vs Australia, he returned for a show in Mexico City this year.
Among other single releases, he has produced successful remixes for Cornershop, Beastie Boys and A tribe called Quest.
His success has been measured by the award nominations he has garnered throughout his career as a musician. Fatboy Slim has been nominated for a total of 24 music awards and has won 19.
The largest number of awards he has won is the MTV Video Music Awards, the second is the NME Awards. However, the most prestigious are 1 Grammy Award and 2 Brit Awards won by him.
Not only has he created music as a career, but he has also had some infamous collaborations like an appearance in a documentary called Tripping in 1999 that was directed by Vikram Jayanti.
He has also appeared as a DJ playing a role of himself in a movie called Greed (2019)
The musician helped popularize the big beat genre in the ’90s and was also the bassist for an Indian rock band the Housemartins for a time, after which he produced their number one single “Dub Be Good to Me.”
Fatboy slim also holds a Guinness World Record for the most top 40 hits and has 9 MTV Video Music Awards for his solo performances, as well as 2 brit awards.
One of his first gigs was in 2002, when the DJ performed on Brighton Beach to a crowd of over 200,000, which was one of his biggest hits.
He has also performed at other venues such as Glastonbury Festival, Coachella Valley Music Festival, Miami Ultra Music Festival, House of Commons in Westminster, London and many more. In addition, she has also hosted a radio show on XFM.
What inspires him most is to squeeze the limited musical equipment. Having a lot of options in front of you is what confuses you and gets in the way of making simple and real music.
