EDM creates new ball-park for FIFA 2014

Fat Boy Slim has collaborated with an epic team of EDM king-pins to produce an un-official anthem for the 2014 World Cup!

Special creative minds include Diplo, DJ Fresh, Fedde Le Grand, Nervo, Carl Cox, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, to produce the EDM anthem.

The single, Eparrei is a fusion of EDM and South American culture, featuring local Brazilian acts such as electro group Bonde Do Role, Felguk and DJ Marky

The single is set to be featured on Slim’s new album Bem Brasil, featuring remixes of classic Brazilian music and some brand spanking new tunes!

The conceptual album aims to capture both sides of Brazilian lifestyle, day and night, and to express love for the country and culture. Enter the World Cup. We mostly associate soccer and Brazil to almost be one and the same, so it comes as no surprise the Fatboy Slim should choose to release his album that aims to embody the essence of Brazil around this time.

Slim brought together friends and peers to reflect his lifetime at the forefront of international dance music. Showcasing friends from the start of slim’s career to ones of the latest generation, his new album promises to ignite the party scene for the world cup and also produce a new spin on EDM as it is today.

Bem Brasil is set to be released 26th May

Fatboy Slim Fools Crowd With Daft Punk Prank!

Fatboy Slim, you’ve done it again!

After performing 6 secret shows in Glasto, during one of the intimate yet epic performances, Fatboy Slim decided to take the show up a notch. Two impersonators wearing Daft Punk helmets appeared on stage pretending to cameo the set during Fatboy Slims’ remix of ‘Get Lucky‘. As you can imagine, the stunt had the whole crowd erupting with screams of sheer joy and excitement. It wasn’t long before the fans figured out the stunt as the two impersonators moved around the set as Fatboy’s backup dancers. Guess the audience didn’t ‘get lucky’ after all.

Anyway, here’s the prank for you to watch and enjoy.

Fatboy Slim praises Daft Punk

In a interview with Daily Star, Norman Cook – who we know as Fatboy Slim, has praised Daft Punk‘s latest work. He dubs them as ‘the last great dance music supergroup you’ll ever hear,’ and claims that all EDM artists, himself included, have, and will receive ‘a kick up the ass,’ from their 4th studio album.

He describes their work as “a breath of fresh old-school air,” and it is reported that he is putting the next Fatboy Slim album on hold to work with Random Access Memories collaborators.
