Before setting global music charts afire with his Fatboy Slim alias, Norman Cook was merging his love of '70s funk breaks with classic Jamaican dub sound system rhythms. Shortly following his stint with UK indie popsters the Housemartins, Cook founded Beats International as a creative outlet for his growing interest in dance music. Using studio musicians, rappers, vintage vinyl recordings, and samples, he fashioned clever, catchy pop tunes that were to become the basis for the genre now known as "funky breaks."
