Fatboy Slim to become first DJ to play the House of Commons
Fatboy Slim will become the first DJ to perform at the House of Commons tonight.
The DJ who lives in Hove will be warming up at the unlikely venue before a set by the winner of a national DJ-ing competition.
Fatboy, real name Norman Cook, has said: "I've played some exciting and unique places around the world, from Bondi Beach to the Great Wall of China to an igloo, but playing in the House of Commons might be the most unique to date."
He added: "Music is a huge part of my life and to give something back in this way is amazing."
He will be the support act for 22-year-old student Bryce Fury, who won the competition House The House, in aid of the Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Foundation.
Mr Fury, whose real name is Bryce Moore, comes from Corby, Northamptonshire and is studying electrical engineering at Northumbria University.
He said: "It's a bit daunting to meet someone who is a living legend.
"This is a massive opportunity for me, to meet so many important people. I wouldn't be complaining if I ended up DJ-ing full time, I've done quite a bit of it in Newcastle."
Jonny Lee, founder of the Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Foundation, which encourages 16-25-year-olds to get more involved in their communities through grassroots initiatives, said: "Bryce won the competition for a number of different reasons, including his mixing skills and technical ability."
All the 10 national finalists had to devote at least four hours to a community project.
Mike Weatherley, the MP for Hove and Portslade, has said: "House The House is giving young people the chance to have a voice, to be recognised for their endeavours and to engage with their communities to create change from the grassroots up.
"Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and House The House are great examples of what the whole music industry can achieve in an innovative way."
