Fatboy Slim releases festive ‘Get Down and Jump into the Middle’ edit for free
One of the most important constituents of being a DJ (if not the most important) is song selection, and anyone who has seen Fatboy Slim live knows this is where he excels. Norman Cook’s knowledge and appreciation for music is vast. The English visionary is just as likely to drop an obscure latin house track as he is Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” While a few months back Cook treated us to a clean mashup of “I Feel Love” and “Rolling in the Deep,” today Fatboy goes festive with a mashup of the Cube Guys and Luciana’s “Jump” over Gary Beck’s delectable techno track “Get Down.” The result is an impeccably rhythmic edit with a catchy mirthful charm, available for free from Fatboy Slim’s SoundCloud.
