Norman Cook, a Lo-Fidelity Allstar and more hit the decks

Big Beat Boutique, the club formed by Skint Records Damian Harris and Fat Boy Slim, will host three summer parties in London.

Beginning on May 7 at the newly-revamped Scala, the club will feature DJ sets from Fat Boy Slim, Monkey Mafia’s Jon Carter, Phil from Lo-Fidelity Allstars, Deadly Avenger and ‘special guests from the USA’.

The two other Big Beat Boutique events are scheduled for June 4 with Fatboy Slim and July 2.


The Boutique is ending its association with the capital’s The End this Friday (April 9).

The last ‘Skint On Fridays’ will feature sets from the Lo-Fi Allstars, Deejay Punk Roc and Bronx Dogs. Boutique proprietor Gareth Hansome said: “We’ve had some wonderful times at The End.

“But we’ve been considering a Boutique London branch for quite some time but hadn’t been able to find a venue with good live facilities and three rooms to truly represent what we’re about. “The Scala fits the bill perfectly. Three magic nights ahead!” Tickets cost #10 for NUS and #12 others.
