[Interview] Get Spooked with Fatboy Slim at BangOn!NYC Warehouse of Horrors

Detlef, CloZee and MAXIMONO are just a few of the names you’ll see on BangOn!NYC’s Warehouse of Horrors line up this year – but where things really get interesting is Fatboy Slim. From one of his most iconic tracks, Praise You to his recent release, Boom F**King Boom (Feat. Beardyman), this legend has been making breakthrough records for over 2 decades!

It is an honor to have him play in NYC Saturday, October 28 for a whole city-block sized warehouse full of goons – and if you know BangOn!NYC, you know they have quite a few tricks up their sleeves for this party! Look forward to:

Massive Warehouse
Ghostly Aerialists
Interactive Art
Human Bowling
Trick-or-Treating
Mutant Art Cars
Games & Activities
Raunchy Carnival Games
more Goodies & Goonies TBA

What is even more of an honor is that we got some words from Norman Cook about what’s kept him in the dance scene for so long and what we should expect from him in the coming months.

Read the full interview below:

To start off with the most important question of this interview: what are you going to be for Halloween this year?!

Still in the planning stages, so many outfits seem like a good idea but are totally impracticle to DJ in. my default is a bumble bee.

Tell me, how does one “Eat” your show? Where does the expression come from?

At a few select festivals over the summer we fired sweets rather than confetti into the crowd, had bubbles filled with strawberry flavour smoke and released a 7” single called ‘boom fucking boom’ with an edible sleeve. No real concept behind it, just seemed like a good idea at the time…

You’ve had over 30 different monikers. Why’d you choose to stick with ‘Fatboy Slim’?

He’s the most similar to the real me. He was so successful that he took up all my time and strangled all my other alter egos like like japanese knotweed.

You play many instruments, which is your favorite and have you ever incorporated it into your performances as a DJ?

I once experimented with a dub theremin for sound effects but it was so annoying my crew hid it after 2 shows.

What is it about producing, DJing, or the dance music scene in general that has kept you entranced all of these years?

I love the energy of the collective euphoria and escapism of club culture and the celebratory, surreal nature of the music turns me on as much as it did 30 years when I first fell in lov with it.

What’s something on your bucket list that you’ve yet to mark off?

I’m hoping to one day kill a deer, butcher it, and cook it.

You’ve been sober for a while now. What would you say to someone who is contemplating being sober in this drug-infested scene?

You remember much more, get to feel ok the next morning and save a lot of money but it’s not half as much fun so don’t get sober until you’ve had enough.

What’s a track of yours that you’re proud of that people might not know about?

I did a remix of a tune called ‘I won’t stop loving you’ by A Certain Ratio that I did absolutely yonks ago but I am still very proud of it, it still gives me goose bumps

What are your plans for the rest of 2017?

Working on a film soundtrack project and doing all the sleeping I didn’t do all summer.
