Norman Cook, aka Fat Boy Slim, shows off his big beat-dancestyle once again with the release of YOU'VE COME A LONG WAYBABY. Packed with pure energy, smart breaks and edgy samples, YOU'VE COME A LONG WAY BABY is a strong follow up to 1997's BETTER LIVING THROUGH CHEMISTRY. The first single, "The Rockafeller Skank" cleverly uses a Lord Finesse vocal sample that dominates the massive-sounding track. In addition, the twangy surf guitars provide a texture not often heard in bigbeat.
"Gangster Tripping", the second single, is a funky, mind-bending head-nodder that uses smashing drums, horn shots, reggae breaks and filtering techniques. Other tracks tomake you move are "Build it Up", the adrenaline wig-out "Acid 8000" and "Praise You", with its catchy, '70s-like piano hook. The title of this album speaks volumes about the stateof Fat Boy Slim's work. Catch up or you'll get stomped by the big beat explosion.
