general – Into The Mixing Bowl

by Jessica Holland. Tuesday, 13 November 2007

What do you think of the UK dance music scene – is it vibrant at the moment?

No, vibrancy awaits. It will happen next May when my album comes out! I think it’s always had lulls. It had a lull and then drum & bass came along, and it had a lull and then Daft Punk came along. Then it had a lull and big beat came along. Every DJ I know, we’re all scratching our heads trying to come up with the new element, because it’s definitely a bit of a fallow period. But sometimes you need that. Fallow periods were invented by farmers to rejuvenate the soil and make it rich again.

Oxfam, Dalston: Thursday night

With a banana in his mouth and vinyl in his hand, superstar DJ Fatboy Slim last night climaxed the Oxjam Festival by bringing his Ibiza party to Dalston. The weather might be better on the disco island but Norman Cook easily adapted to the east London venue – the damp, dark and sweaty basement suited his bass heavy tunes perfect.

Barefoot and in his traditional Hawaiian shirt and camouflage shorts, the constantly smiling Cook basked in the strong neon lights and the crowd’s devotion, rather than the sun.
