The Fatboy Slim Collection Goes Gold
The latest in Sony Music’s award-winning, chart-topping compilation series, ‘The Fatboy Slim Collection’ achieves Gold status Released: May 25th 2015
4CD/Digital including Exclusive DJ Mix
Pioneering dance music DJ, record producer and multi-million selling artist Norman Cook’s ‘ The Fatboy Slim Collection’ album has been certified GOLD in the UK, passing 100,000 sales this week, one of only a handful of newly branded compilations to have done so in 2015.
Norman Cook says of the recent achievement: “Selling 100 thousand copies of anything these days is incredibly tough, so I’m absolutely stoked that this album has done so well. It just goes to show the power of great dance music! Thanks to Sony and the whole team!”
The latest in the massively successful, Music Week Award-winning, chart-topping, now 900k-selling ‘Collection’ series that has so far featured compilations from DJs Trevor Nelson, Pete Tong and Grandmaster Flash, ‘The Fatboy Slim Collection’ features four CDs, three of which feature all the original legendary club hits he has hand-picked, with the fourth being his own exclusive DJ mix [also replicated on the digital formats]. All ‘Collection’ albums are BPI Certified Platinum, Gold or Silver.
Standouts on the release include The Chemical Brothers’ No. 1 hit ‘Block Rockin’ Beats’ and the late Frankie Knuckles’ momentous ‘Your Love’. Also on the ‘Collection’ are two of Fatboy Slim’s best - known singles, ‘Right Here, Right Now’ and ‘Eat Sleep Rave Repeat’.
Norman has already appeared at numerous festivals this summer including Parklife, T In The Park and Glastonbury, where he played for the 15th consecutive year – the only artist ever to have done so. His upcoming SW4 appearance will also celebrate the ‘Smile High Club’, a movement dreamt up by Norman to inject some acid house smiley high jinks into the arena he is hosting, as well as his appearance at other events throughout the year.
One of the biggest DJs, artists and record producers of the last two decades, Norman has released seven Top 10 albums to date. Under the Fatboy Slim moniker, he has sold over 5 Million records in the UK alone, including ‘You’ve Come A Long Way Baby’, a record that went to No.1 in the UK album chart. The Fatboy Slim Collection is out now through Sony.
