    Next in the compiler hotseat for seminal mix series ‘Back to Mine’ is the legendary DJ and producer Fatboy Slim. Having sold over 10 million records and embarked on a number of sold out arena tours, the esteemed record collector and all round great selector delves deep into his weighty collection at his home to create a heady journey of funk and soul. The collection opens with Dave Barker & Ansell Collins ‘Monkey Spanner’ – a reggae single released in 1971 from the Kingston based duo working for the infamous producer Lee “Scratch” Perry.

    There are a few rare finds, Donal Leace ‘Today Won’t Come Again’, Wind ‘Grooving With Mr Bloe’ and George Rene ‘Smokey Joe’s La La’. And the most recognisable for many no doubt is Betty Chung’s 1968 classic ‘Bang Bang’ thanks to the vocals of the Nancy Sinatra cover being sampled in the Audio Bullys rework in 2005.

    The 1975 classic ‘Take Yo Praise’ from Camille Yarborough which Fatboy Slim used to sample the iconic ‘Praise You’ in 1998 is found in the first half of the mix, and not forgetting his group Beats International, which Norman sampled lyrics from the featured track ‘Jam Hot’ by Johnny Dynell for ‘Dub Be Good To Me’. A track that became the best-selling single in the UK in 1990.

    And last but not least, two new and exclusive tracks ‘Fatboy Slim & Roland Clark ‘Sunset 303’ (If You Believe) and ‘The Voice Of Experience’ under his Yum Yum Head Food alias, known for producing his more ambient tunes including ‘Bird Of Prey’.

    Fatboy Slim delivers an amazing selection of tracks which give us all a little sneak peek into the vibes generated from years of meaningful memories for this ‘Back To Mine’ series. From his house to yours, listening pleasure is guaranteed.

    “Over the years there has been so much action back at mine, so many friends, lovers and lunatics who would congregate after the clubs had closed to laugh, share and swap ideas and tunes and generally put the world to rights… this is a collection from the soundtrack of those sessions” - Fatboy Slim


    STAFF COMMENTS

    Matt says: Unstoppable since their return in 2019, Back To Mine’s hot streak continues with this amazing contribution from one of my personal heroes. As you’d expect from Mr Cook, the tracklist is all over the shop, uncovering rare reggae, soul, punk funk and disco, a few cuts he’s sampled over the years and two gorgeous exclusive tracks.

    You've Come A Long Way Baby - Deluxe 20th Anniversary Edition

    One of Fatboy Slim's crowning glories, "You've Come A Long Way Baby" saw the Brighton luminary take the big beat grenade and detonate it overground, taking the sound to the clubs, beaches, adverts and coffee tables of Great Britain and beyond. If you were conscious in 1998 it was impossible to ignore this album, with companies queuing up to align themselves with the coolest new trend in club land. Fatboy himself used the platform to elevate his Big Beach Boutique brand - two phenomenal parties on Brighton beach (the first seeing 65K revellers, the second - 250K!!); the likes of which sadly, I doubt, we will ever see again. I can personally remember exactly where I was the first time I heard "Rockafella Skank" and to me this is up there with "Dig Your Own Hole", "Music For The Jilted Generation" and "Homework" as one of the most iconic dance music albums of the nineties. I wasn't old enough to hear the tracks in the club, but its cultural impact travelled up and down the generational ladder from everyone at high school to people's Mum's cleaning the kitchen.

    A celebratory 20th anniversary reissue as part of BMG’s ‘Art of The Album’ series showcasing seminal albums that broke new ground in concept, production, song writing, and genre, leaving a lasting legacy as a complete album work of art. Deluxe edition CD and LP format packaging including 180g gatefold vinyl, 6 page 12” roll-fold booklet (LP), 12” display art card (LP) and 28 page booklet (CD).

    Exclusive anniversary sleeve notes from Ralph Moore (Editor at Large, Mixmag) and album timeline from Damian Harris (Skint Records).
    Number one on the UK albums chart, number one in New Zealand, number two in Australia and number thirty-four on the US Billboard 200 containing four top ten singles. These tell a beautifully story much better than I can hear and really give creedence to this golden age of dance music that Norman was spearheading.

    Ranked number 81 in Q magazine's readers' poll of the "100 Greatest British Albums Ever".

    Brit Awards: Best Dance Act 1999, 2001. Brit Awards: British Single 1999 (nominee), Male Solo Artist 1999 (nominee).

    Eat Mash Rave Repeat

      Following huge celebrations at the Reading & Leeds Festival this Summer, Fatboy Slim invites you to come and ‘Eat My Show’. Not satisfied with providing aural and visual delights during his sets, he is now adding taste to the Fatboy live experience! In addition to the edible surprises at the Reading & Leeds shows, Fatboy is also serving up a limited edition 7” including the acapella of "Eat Sleep Rave Repeat" and a brand new club weapon ‘Boom Fucking Boom’ (feat. Beardyman), finished off with an edible vanilla flavoured insert.

      Following on from the recent disco tinged "Where U Iz", "Boom Fucking Boom" retains the classic Fatboy feel but cranks everything up a notch! Norman is on fire playing some of the best sets of his life. Recent highlights include opening the Sleepless Floor at Melt Festival, playing in between Jamie Jones and Carl Cox at Kappa Futur Festival, a surprise b2b with Eats Everything at Glastonbury and his Amnesia residency going from strength to strength.

      Better Living Through Chemistry - 20th Anniversary Edition

        After enjoying a successful first decade in the music industry with The Housemartins, Beats International and Freak Power, Norman Cook put all of his other projects to one side in 1995, concentrating instead on new alias Fatboy Slim. After the 12" release of two killer club tracks, "Santa Cruz" and "Everybody Needs A 303", the Fatboy was ready to conquer the world and duly dropped "Better Living Through Chemistry" on Skint in 1996. As the set barrelled through a rapid fire succession of 60s soul samples, funk backbeats and wigged out synth action, Cook set about creating a new sound informed by all those rare nuggets he'd spun in Brighton's club scene. Taking hip hop's sampledelic spirit, the boundless energy of rave and the filtered brilliance heading over the channel from Paris' new breed, Cook laid the template for the chart topping, party starting, mainroom magic which would fill Britain's dancefloors for the next decade. It was the starting point of a roller-coaster journey that has gone on to include massive hit singles, multi-platinum selling albums, three Brit Awards, a Grammy, an Ivor Novello, 10 MTV Awards, the 2012 Olympic closing ceremony and worldwide DJ superstardom which continues to this day with a hectic schedule of DJ performances and festival headliner shows. This album celebrates where it all began - the brilliant original album - a seminal dance music moment in history, and expands on the story with a whole disc of bonus tracks including recordings from the Fatboy vaults that have never been released before. 


        STAFF COMMENTS

        Patrick says: What did I tell you?! Twelve months ago I was predicting the return of big beat, and here it is, beginning with one of the crowning moments in the genre. This was a massive album for me when I was growing up and it sounds just as banging now as it did then. "Give The Po' Man A Break" and "Everybody Needs A 303" are right back.

        Here Lies Love - Limited Edition

        "Here Lies Love" is a double-disc song cycle, improbably poignant, decidedly surreal, surprisingly thought provoking - about the rise and fall of the Philippines' notorious Imelda Marcos. It was conceived by David Byrne; composed by Byrne and Fatboy Slim, AKA Norman Cook; and performed by a dream cast drawn from the worlds of indie rock, alt country, R&B and pop. Byrne's taste in collaborators is as imaginative as it is impeccable, including Cyndi Lauper (who recounts, to light-hearted disco beats, Imelda's courtship with Ferdinand Marcos), Steve Earle (as the power-hungry Ferdinand), Dap-Kings vocalist Sharon Jones (recalling Imelda's introduction into New York society) and Natalie Merchant (as spurned Imelda confidante Estrella, anticipating the onset of martial law). Along with vocals turns from such stars as Tori Amos and the B-52's Kate Pierson, Byrne works with rising indie rockers St Vincent and My Brightest Diamond; New York chanteuses Nellie McKay and Martha Wainwright; and dance-music divas Roisin Murphy and Santigold. Byrne himself appears as the voice of imperialistic America on "American Troglodyte", a send-up that wouldn't have seemed out of places in Talking Heads' "True Stories".
