From the humble roots of albums comprising classic breaks sampled by latter day artists such as the Sampled series or Blue Break Beats, it is only natural in a world of superstar DJs that these collections become personal. A Break From The Norm features 16 classic tracks as sampled by vinyl junkie Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim. From the first two tracks alone the diversity is clear with Camille Yarbrough's now famous vocal from the funky "Take Yo' Praise" (as used on "Praise You") preceding Scottish diva Lulu ("Love Loves to Love Love"). Such collections don't often stray far from funk, disco, soul and jazz but the refreshing inclusion of other genres such as the folk-rock ballad by The James Gang ("Ashes The Rain & I") provide a chilled-out break from the sweaty funk and dirty beats that inevitably feature. A standout track is the comparatively modern "Beatbox Wash" by the Dust Junkies which contains the almost indecipherable but convenient line "What we're doing when the fatboy's trippin". In all, with so much original material to choose from, it is a very carefully considered collection ignoring some of the more obvious choices and opting for the real hidden gems. To quote the sleeve notes from Mr Cook "...all the tracks here are enjoyable on their own merit rather than just 'Oh, that's where he got that bit from' syndrome" --David Trueman
