FATBOY SLIM VISITS PINEWOOD STUDIOS FOR SW4!
Having been unable to unleash his brilliance on Brighton Beach this year, Fatboy Slim closes SW4 2010 in one of the most eagerly anticipated DJ sets of the festival season. His headline performance on the Kiss Main Stage, hosted by his very own Southern Fried Records, will feature the full Fatboy experience alongside many other mouth-watering performances. This includes Salt N Pepa (first London show in 15 years!), Armand van Helden (UK festival exclusive), Uffie, Hervé, Steve Aoki and Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, Kissy Sell Out and Jaymo & Andy George. Expect bangs, whistles, inflatable cows and electronic debauchery like you’ve never seen or heard before.
As part of his act Fatboy Slim has created boundary pushing visuals using high-tech motion capture techniques developed at Pinewood Studios. Pinewood are of course the world renowned film studios made famous for their spectacular animation on James Bond blockbusters and more recently Evian’s roller-skating babies. The visuals developed for Norman’s SW4 performance involves a 3D version of Norman’s head, synched to his audio mix and visuals. Norman will have full control of when to drop the 3D creation’s acapellas into his set mixing the two seamlessly for a visual master-class… a world’s first we ask?!?

FATBOY SLIM AT SW4: EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED!
We recently caught up with Fatboy Slim ahead of his South West Four headline performance this August Bank Holiday. Having prepared for SW4 after appearances at Glastonbury, Rockness and across South Africa for the World Cup this summer, expect Fatboy Slim to arrive on Clapham Common in trademark style. In other words expect the unexpected!
“I was going to use a vuvuzela in my set at Glastonbury but we left it in our tent. What we were trying to do, as we sometimes use airhorns on stage, was work out if we could put the gas from the air horns through the vuvuzela which would be pretty loud. I’m going to try and do that for Clapham so keep them peeled!” Fatboy Slim
