Fatboy Slim
Don’t let the man.

Norman Cook is back with this cheeky number which samples the 70s Canadian band Five Man Electrical Band.

Released on 27 th June, this is not his usual dance track; it’s got an edgier sound to it. It sounds more original and quirkier than his previous tracks like “Praise you” - in fact this one is quite similar to that tune, but without the crazy dance for a video.

The music video for this song is what you would call, controversial! It features Don the racist and has six different endings including one featuring Paris Hilton - she’s everywhere!

The track was sent In to Fatboy and after liking how it sounded he decided to record the track. Question is why would you send a random song in to someone!?!

It features calm and collective beats with soothing vocals lead and backing! My favourite is the maracas; they just make the song sound continental and Ibiza style!

This song would be great played out loud - check slim out at Glastonbury on 26 th June!

He’ll also be doing a UK tour so check him out at one of these!
