On a crystal clear English summer's evening in the summer of 2001, Norman Cook played his most celebrated DJ set Live On Brighton Beach. In front of an estimated 30,000 loved-up Brightonians dancing on the pebbles, the man known to millions as Fatboy Slim took to the decks for two hours of typically hedonistic party mayhem. It's these two hours--or, at least, an edited version of them--that make our Norm's first mix album in yonks and a perfect souvenir of the night now known as "Normstock".
Sound wise, the album sees Mr Zoe Ball doing what he does best--mashing up thumping dancefloor favourites in a sweat-drenched party stylee. Those expecting classic big beat belters are in for a shock, though, 'cos these days the Fatboy is more into straight-up house and techno--albeit with the aforementioned party twist. So, we get some of 2001's biggest records--Basement Jaxx's "Where's Your Head At?", Raven Maze's "The Real Life", a couple from Santos--alongside a smatering of classics (Leftfield's "Phat Planet", an anthemic version of Underworld's "Born Slippy") and the off Fatboy number to keep the punters sweet. The result is a hot, sweaty, grimy mix that perfectly captures the sound and feel of Norman Cook's DJ sets, even if it does feel a touch out of date. --Matt Anniss

I love Norm's 'devil may care' approach. He happily crosses genres, mixing house into techno, breaks into progessive, etc etc etc... He doesn't try and take you 'on a journey'. Oh - it's a fabulous cliche and should be reserved only for the likes of Sasha & Digweed, who really do take you on a journey, but again use Pro-Tools to do so! I also love that Fatboy Norm is one of the few DJs left who uses a pair of Technics. Therefore his live sets are bound to include a couple of loose mixes, but this only adds to the authenticity! He's a party DJ through and through, who knows how to whip up a crowd that don't care that you shouldn't mix Trance into Soul or whatever, but do care that a DJ gets them wiggling. It's a special skill to make a blend of anthems sound fresh and new and Slimboy Fatnorm succeeds at that again here.
This album doesn't exactly break conventions, but it is as close as you will probably get to distilling the Fatboy Slim live experience onto a plastic disc.
He basically mixes up a mixed back of new and old house stuff and chucks a couple of his own numbers in to keep the punters happy.
Right about now!
His last studio album marked a changing point in the Fatboy's musical stylings. Moving away from the big boozy beats of yesteryear (beats that I still adore.... moreso than his recent platters) Norman is now a man of house music pure and simple. If you don't believe me, then check out this live mix. Slamming 4/4 beats aplenty, culminating in breaks crescendo at the end, with an excellent remix of Leftfield's Phat Planet and the Slimster's Bird of Prey.
As if thats not all, to add to the 'liveness' of this mix comes an announcement from the concerned security, advising revellers to move away from the sea, that was rapidly closing in. This does disrupt the listener a little, but what could be done? Nothing, and as I said, it merely adds to the live feeling you get off this CD when listening to it in the comfort of your own home.
This ain't On the Floor at the Big Beat Boutique, but Mr Cook has moved on these days, whether thats towards bigger and better things, you decide. This CD is worth buying gang. Serious.
