She played a 50-minute set straight to Fatboy Slim’s Facebook page.
It’s no myth that Fatboy Slim is a deadset legend on and off the music park. He’s inspired generations of DJs to take up the sport and get the best out of themselves and their craft.
Now, he’s getting his daughter involved. Ten-year-old Nelly Cook just streamed her first-ever DJ set, performing a 53-minute show as part of Camp Bestival’s Stay at Home Easter Sleepover in the UK. Fat Girl Slim, as she calls herself, is the star of the show, but that doesn’t mean the ever-cheeky Fatboy Slim isn’t a fixture in the performance – he dances around in the background wearing masks and helping Nelly with her transitions and effects while holding the camera.
The Greta Thunberg samples that have become a feature of Fatboy Slim’s performances kickstart Nelly’s set. Then it’s onto some delicious groove-driven house music – everything that her father has become known for. From there, hear slices of Deee-Lite’s ‘Groove Is in the Heart’, Danzel’s ‘Pump It Up’ before things climax at the end with John Paul Young’s ‘Love Is In The Air’. Fatboy has become known for his ability to celebrate all genres of music through his DJing and it seems Fat Girl is no different.
You’ve taught them well, Norman.
