Throwback Thursday: Fatboy Slim – The Rockafeller Skank

What better way to highlight this weekend’s “carnival” than with one of its headliners. This Friday the legendary Fatboy Slim will be taking the stage (KineticField) where he will probably play one of the stronger sets of the evening.

‘The Rockafeller Skank’ has stood the test of time since 1998, the year it first hit the airwaves. It’s pretty unbelievable when you think about it, as this track is nearly 15 years old! What makes this particular tune so unique is that the whole song is a collaboration of samples. The vocals are from ‘Vinyl Dog Vibe‘ by Vinyl Dogs and the song includes four other samples including ‘Sliced Tomatoes‘ by Northern Soul and ‘Beat Girl‘ by John Barry. This throwback is somewhat of a learning experience, right about now, the funk soul brother.
