DJ Fatboy Slim started out playing house parties in England in the 90s. He says that before he became a DJ, he was a part of the “food chain of nights out”; going to parties, drinking and making friends.
In the summer of 2012, as I was moving from my small studio flat in north London to a tiny, shared house in south London, I realised that I was a lazy record collector. I was still a DJ, I still paid to see live bands, but I couldn’t be bothered to go to record shops and spend money on music I didn’t already have. I began to buy records less and less, and my record collection withered away quickly.
For me, and I think for a lot of us, I started listening to music because I wanted to dance. I wanted to get up and move and that’s still a big part of how I listen to music. I like watching people dance and what they do physically, so even though I’m interested in all kinds of music, when I’m at a house party or festival I’m there to find out how people make other people dance. I don’t listen to records or CDs and I don’t really listen to my phone either. I’m pretty much a live person.
Fatboy Slim is a dad and when he is not busy being a dad he is working on new music. It was good for him to take time off cause he normally works so many hours.
The singer says that he’s been influenced by all kinds of music because his parents didn’t allow him a set of records for his 18th birthday. He says that he still loves live performances.
Well I didn’t get back to writing the difficult 7th album, I didn’t take up painting…
I just sat here and played with my kids.
I mean I did the lockdown mixes every Friday for the first 20 weeks, and that kind of kept me sane, but apart from that I just took the time to be the dad I’m not always present enough to be.
DJing is a special gift, a creative and spiritual experience. Through DJing (and writing), David has opened a door to a new world of creativity and expression. His DJing style reflects his personality and his unique mix of soul, funk and house music.
I’ve been working on the same puzzle since I first received it in 2014.
The first thing I noticed when I started watching him was how flat his personality is, how boring. A character actor doesn’t start at the bottom, they don’t have to work their way up. You start at the top and work your way down.

I am just so amazed at how fat this guy is. I don’t think he is joking and I think he is really serious. The drum machine abuse thing was an absolute myth that every music producer in the world believes. I think that even the producers that use vintage drum machines are just as lazy as Fatboy Slim. There is a difference between lazy and uninterested.
It should be noted that there are many people of whom I have learned much from who are not considered to be particularly interesting or prolific. My goal is not to be interesting but to be prolific.
I don’t think we would have survived coronavirus lockdown with the internet, as it is. Without Zoom, I think a lot of us would have suffered a lot more. I’m trying to think about what state we were in 20 years ago.
As a musician there can be no illusions about any kind of priorities. The business side will come before everything from the moment you sign your first record deal. As a musician there’s no such thing as a priority. There’s always something more important to do and always something more important to forget to do. Business is a part of music. There’s no such thing as a priority in music. There’s always something more important to be done and someone to have to be forgotten to and you accept it. You just have to take it on the chin and accept it.
It was only the second time he had visited the festival after having played a free outdoor solo set at the site of the festival in 2008. He was already a fan of the event and had seen it transform from a small festival to a major one.
Alfonso Ribeiro’s ‘Fresh Prince Of Bel Air’ character, Carlton Banks, would be a nightmare to be around while you’re expecting a baby. He’s always been a bit dodgy anyway.
This is the one we quoted
In this case, we can see that there is a space before the colon, and that the colon is in an inline element (i.e., we cannot wrap the whole thing in a p or a div; they’re block-level and won’t be as tall as the text.)
My understanding is that this is allowed, as long as you don’t accidentally use two colons, e.g.
It’s unlikely that Norman Jay would bother submitting an all-new album under his own name. He’s too concerned with impressing fans with his latest work and he’d be much more concerned about impressing the many DJs who’ll help promote the record. But to quote Fatboy Slim, one of his many aliases, Norman Jay might have a few more surprises up his sleeve for the Fatboy Records camp.
While I doubt Fatboy Slim actually felt that emotion, I think it’s safe to say that his performance was the most patriotic one of the games. The closing ceremony was an incredible moment where the world came together to celebrate the success of this once underdog nation. For that, I think I can at least give him kudos for feeling a small amount of patriotism.
A group of people are really good at puzzles and really good at finding things together.

You’re still a part of the industry, but you’re not a part of the industry. I’d call it the “factory worker” mindset to be honest. You feel more like an employee, because you have to be on schedule, you have to be in place at a certain time, you’re not so much on top of the creative side of it, although there’s still a creative side, you just don’t have that complete ownership of it – you’re not as involved. It’s different. There’s nothing wrong with it, it’s just different.

He was going to be a boxer when he was young and didn’t make it. This is what happens when you don’t make it as a boxer.

He then took up painting and has found success by being honest and saying exactly what he feels about it.
I haven’t been proud to be British. I grew up during the power cuts, miner’s strikes. No, I’ve never been proud of this country. Our triumphs have been colonialism, which meant raping most of the world and all we’ve done since is cock things up, upset people, be arrogant, xenophobic, racist.
Fatboy Slim has been a huge influence on my life since the 90s. I love his production style, and like many of his fans I use the internet to communicate with him all the time.
