Overview

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. Yet for all the twists and turns, our hero never loses the groove, saving two Fatboy Slim floor-fillers ("Michael Jackson" and "Rockefeller Skank") for crucial climaxes.

Editorial Reviews

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.
