On the Floor at the Boutique [Explicit Lyrics]

Barnes & Noble - Kurt B. Reighley
A nonstop party brimming with underground anthems plus a handful of classics including the ground-zero hip-hop groove "Apache" by Michael Viner's Incredible Bongo Band, this mix CD does a remarkable job of capturing the raucous energy of a Fatboy Slim DJ set. Cook's playful program draws on a variety of styles, from neo-disco Clockwork Voodoo Freaks and hip-hop Jungle Brothers to old-school techno CLS and tweaked-out acid house Aldo Bender, stitched together with deft edits.

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
The hook here isn't so much the big-beat compilation itself as it is the DJ who mixed the program -- none other than the funk soul brother himself, Fatboy Slim. Better known to those over 30 as Norman Cook, bass player for the Housemartins and later the brains behind the charming reggae-funk outfit Beats International, he's now the king of big beat, a club music subgenre dedicated to fat, stoopid beats and pure dancefloor fun. On the Floor at the Boutique was recorded live as Fatboy mixed it at Brighton, England's Big Beat Boutique, and it's guaranteed to ruin the carpet at any party. There are contributions from artists as established as Fred Wesley with his Horny Horns, not the Famous Flames and the Jungle Brothers, and as obscure as DJ Tonka whose "Phun-Ky" is an album highlight and Bassbin Twins. It should come as no surprise that Fatboy Slim himself delivers some of the best moments on the program, including the deeply weird "Michael Jackson" and his irresistible Top 40 hit "Rockafeller Skank." Outstanding.
Rolling Stone - Matt Diehl
...proves once and for all that, despite his commercial success, when Fatboy Slim rocks the wheel of steel, he’s still mad, bad and dangerous to know.

    beat-march delight

    an awesome and extraordinary clock-like clocking precised music. Long time ago at the first glance I found it 'marching' so not so tempting anyway. But in fact, these set of songs contains any essential aim of waht music should really be. Excluding couple of likes around 11-14 or so which are mistakes here, there are some real gems! Hear it, feel it, dance it, de-compose, de-mix, or re-mix and you are lost in that perfectly rhythmic and symetric piece of work by Norman. Feel all the 4ths, 8ths, 16ths and how and when they are used. This is perfect for dancing and all possible forms of body-hands-legs art called rhytmics or rhythmic expression. phrase after phrase every division is intelligently empahsized so even "the equal perception" is pretty boring because the densening of rhythm is what Norman literally did to these cuts. This is perfect. My favorites are: 1,3,5,7,17,18 and of course 19
