LEGENDARY DJ Fatboy Slim will be performing at Okada Manila’s Cove Manila on April 12, 10:30 p.m.
The English DJ and record producer is set to sizzle at a show presented by the IKON Urban Music Festival series.
Fatboy Slim (real name Norman Quentin Cook) first made waves as the bassist for the 1980s indie-rock band Housemartins, before going on to form Beats International. The mid-1990s saw the birth of his most iconic persona as Fatboy Slim, churning out hits such as “Praise You,” “Weapon of Choice,” “The Rockafeller Skank,” and “Wonderful Night.”
He has collaborated with David Byrne, the Beastie Boys, Spike Jonze, Macy Gray, and Christopher Walken among many others, earning him distinctions such as six awards in the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards, two Brit Awards, and the Guinness World Record for the most top 40 hits under different names. In the recent years, he has concentrated on DJ gigs over producing records. His own brand of “Party Acid House” music, complemented by audio-visual productions, make for unique shows.
The April 12 show will start at 10:30 p.m., kicking off with a special first act. For details, visit www.covemanila.com.
