Wildcard (week 10):
Fatboy Slim – Where U Iz

Beats International, Freakpower, Pizzaman, Mighty Dub Katz, Fatboy Slim… It’s all one and the same man: Norman Cook, who started his career as bass player in The Housemartins.

Fatboy Slim is far and away Cook’s most successful alias and it’s been too long since we heard from him. Over three years, to be exact. He broke through with The Rockafeller Skank, in 1998, and followed it up with classic dance tracks like Praise You, Right Here, Right Now and – more recently – Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat. That was at the end of 2013.

Now the boy is back with an epic new track. It’s bound to set both dance floors and living rooms on fire with its joyful party vibe, Elton John-style piano, infectious horns, funky guitars and repetitive lyrics (“Where U Iz is where it’s at, and you can’t beat that with a baseball bat”). I absolutely love it, so the whole of the coming week it’ll feature on top of the Carte Blanche Music blog as this week’s Wildcard.
