Fatboy Slim announces a show in Dublin

The first time he felt it – how music can lift us upwards, pull us together – came during the long car journeys his family would take when he was a child. To entertain themselves along the way, they would all sing together, taking harmonies, as the world slid by outside. The boy in the back took notice: “The tetchy long-journey arguments had stopped, and we were all as one as a family in this car, all just letting ourselves go. Sharing music. Singing like idiots, but at the same time making a beautiful noise, because my parents could sing. And, sitting in the car, it just became bigger than the five of us.”

To corral that feeling, to shepherd such moments…in a sense, that is what Norman Cook has made the business of his life, for longer than he can quite countenance. He started DJ-ing over forty years ago. Although everything has changed a thousand times over since then, in the most important ways nothing has. “That’s what drives me, keeps my thirst for it – the power of the collective unity and community that a shared musical experience can have”
