Funk Soul Brother

Fatboy Slim is the stage name of Norman Cook, one of the most enduring and successful Pop/Big Beat musicians of the past 20 years. His numerous hits, and collaborations with artists such as David Byrne and Beastie Boys, have earned him the reputation as "the father of mainstream electronic music." Slim has just released five new tracks that he crafted using sample-loops from Raymond Scott's electronic soundtrack for the 1967 film, "The Paperwork Explosion" (directed by Muppet master Jim Henson). The two new EPs, which are collaborations with UK-based DJ/producer HervĂ©, are titled "Machines Can Do The Work," and "Machines Can Do The Work: Remixed.

Both the original, and the "Action Man aka HervĂ© Acid Mix" versions are available now from the iTunes music store, and

 Also out now, a 20-minute EP with three remixes: iTunes music store/
