Norman Quentin Cook, also known as his stage name, Fatboy Slim, is a British DJ, musician, rapper, and record producer. As a solo electronic act, he has won ten MTV Video Music Awards and two Brit Awards. His records as Fatboy Slim also helped to popularize the big beat genre, which achieved mainstream popularity in the 1990s.
Cook first rose to fame in the 1980s as the bassist of the indie rock band The Housemartins, who scored a UK number one single with the a capella cover of Isley-Jasper-Isley's "Caravan of Love". After the band split, Cook formed Beats International whose debut album spawned their signature hit, "Dub Be Good to Me" which was another UK number-one. Cook then went on to join numerous other acts including Freak Power, Pizzaman, and The Mighty Dub Katz to moderate success.
Cook adopted the Fatboy Slim moniker in 1996 and released <em>Better Living Through Chemistry</em> to critical acclaim. Follow ups <em>You've Come a Long Way, Baby</em> and <em>Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars</em>, as well as their associated singles "The Rockafeller Skank", "Praise You", "Right Here, Right Now" and "Weapon of Choice" were also met with positive reviews and commercial success.
"Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat" is a single by Fatboy Slim and Riva Star featuring vocals from Beardyman. Aided by a remix by Calvin Harris, the song reached number 3 on the UK Singles Chart, becoming Fatboy Slim's first top ten hit since Star 69/Weapon of Choice in 2001.
