Fatboy Slim

Fatboy Slim

Better Living Through Chemistry

Astralwerks

Godfather of big beat and Brighton native Fatboy Slim goes for a grand-scale cliff-hanging build-up rampage. This is, of course, all the better to enhance one’s hyper-existence with foreign substances. Well-loved anthems like “Everybody Needs A 303” rub shoulders with snatched samples from a Pete Townshend/Yvonne Elliman collaboration of “I Can’t Explain” on “Going Out Of My Head.” Beat freaks left feeling a little bit jaded by the developments of Prodigy and Chemical Brothers should get an earful of this to warm the cockles of their feet. Brilliant genius, pure joy and boundless energy reign supreme in the House of Love. Astralwerks, 104 W. 29th St., New York, NY 10001; http://www.astralwerks.com
