The DJ pals show what good buddies they all are...

FATBOY SLIM and ERICK MORILLO have been talking about their plans to go into the studio with CARL COX.

NME.COM understands that Norman Cook will be one of a number of guests on

the album, which is currently only in the early stages of production.


“He came down to my house last week and we talked about doing a track before the

Boutique party,” Cook explained to Cox and Fatboy Slim are playing together for the second instalment of the Boutique’s fifth birthday party on April 27th).

Carl‘s doing an album of collaborations – this is his duets album!” he continued. Actually, it’s the longest overdue collaboration in the history of dance music. It all

started in 1989 when I gave him a lift home and we decided to do a track together. He’s saying ‘Star 69’ Part Two now – so I guess I need to find a catchy vocal hook for it!”

Cox confirmed that the collaboration with Cook, as well as with Josh Wink and

Danny Tenaglia, would take place in an exclusive interview with Muzik last



“I’ve made a track called ‘Dirty Bass’ with Christian Smith and I gave it to Danny (Tenaglia) on CD-R at about 6am during his set,” he said.

“‘I said to Danny, ‘Trust me – you love this.’ He listened to it there and then and played it straight away. The crowd went barmy. Danny wants to make a longer edit of it and of

course I said yes!”

“I’ve been lining up a number of contributors,” he continued, “including Norman Cook, Roni Size, Josh Wink, DJ Krust and Subliminal’s Erick Morillo, who’s currently staying at my house.”

Talking to NME.COM last week, Morillo confirmed that this was the case.

“We’re currently putting a track together for his album,” he said. “I’m gonna

let him talk about that when he’s ready. We met at clubs a few times and really

hit it off – and it just seemed like a really cool thing to do! We’ll give it a

try and see what comes out.”

The new material is not expected to be released until at least 2002.
