Good Morning Mix – Norman Cook Essential Mix (6-12-1998)

Perhaps the most well known producer of the 90s, Norman Cook, under the moniker Fatboy Slim, bridged the gap between the booming underground scene and the mainstream consciousness. With a slew of releases that have stood the test of time, his importance in the US dance culture is undeniable. Heavily influenced by hip hop, funk, and soul, Norman’s style was quickly adopted into pop culture (most of you may remember the incredibly iconic music videos for “Weapon of Choice” and “Praise You.”)

On this essential mix from almost 15 years ago, Norman showcases a wide breadth of classic productions. Opening with the career-defining “Gangster Tripping,” he creates a hip hop-centric masterpiece that features tracks from the Beastie Boys, Wiseguys, Grand Larceny, Loop Da Loop and of course, Afrika Bambaataa. When it comes to creating feel good vibes, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a DJ that does it as flawlessly as Mr. Cook – as if you weren’t happy enough that today was Friday.
