2016 is a year of firsts for Fatboy Slim, not only did the UK veteran hold his first Ibiza residency, but he's now hosting his first ever radio show.
Aired via Apple Music station Beats 1, the new fortnightly show works on a freestyle premise, with Fatboy Slim only pre-selecting the first and last tracks.
My idea is, for two hours every fortnight, I can go on this kind of musical journey and probably go to places much further than I can go because you’re not trying to hold a dance floor," he told Beats 1 host Zane Lowe on his show last week. "So it’s an exciting unknown journey. I’m really looking forward to you making an honest DJ out of me.”
Stream the first show, which kicks off with a mashup of Fatboy Slim classics 'Praise You' and 'Sympathy For The Devil', in full here.
