Interview: Fatboy Slim

"If you wanna party, age doesn't matter"

We catch up with British DJ Norman Cook, or Fatboy Slim to me and you, ahead of his second show at Pacha Macau.

Welcome back. How was last year’s show and what can we expect this time?
Last year was real fun and I fully intend to deliver more of the same.

How have you had to adjust your style to appeal to fans of different generations?
I just try and makes sure there's a little bit of everything for everyone. Dance as a  genre is fairly universal, so if you wanna party age doesn’t matter! 

What’s been the weirdest thing to happen to you whilst touring?
I entered the Big Brother house in Brazil and DJed to 12 people for an hour in front of a TV audience of like 20 million. That was pretty weird.

Yourself, and lots of your peers, are still relevant today. What is it that gives you that staying power?
A genuine love of the music we play and who we play it to keeps us going.  

Who has been a source of continuous inspiration for you?
The people I play the music to, so my audience, keep me inspired and amused. I find new music all the time so that keeps things fresh, too.

Which musicians are ones to watch for 2017?
Black Madonna, Nic Fanciulli, the Juke of York andn Vanilla Ace.
