Norman Cook’s contributions to the big beat genre, and electronic music as a whole, have made him a hall of famer in everyone’s eyes. Topping charts with hits like Right Here, Right Now, and Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat, he’s one of a few artists to stay relevant across multiple generations.
Next month Cook will join Back To Mine with his Fatboy Slim project, curating the 31st edition of the mix compilation series. In a time when we’re forced to stay indoors more than ever, it seems increasingly important to have someone of his standing contribute.
Since debuting with Nick Warren back in 1999, Back To Mine has seen the likes of Orbital in 2002, Carl Cox in 2004 and Pet Shop Boys in 2005, making it one of the most star-studded mix albums there is.
The concept requests artists to compile a list of tracks that you might hear blasting through their home stereo, and often includes timeless classics, unheard exclusives and hidden gems from their private collections. Fatboy Slim’s mix arrives November 6th and includes two exclusive tracks from himself, though the tracklist has not yet been revealed. You can grab a 5-minute sneak peek below.
