Norman Quentin Cook (born Quentin Leo Cook; 31 July 1963), also known by his stage name Fatboy Slim, is an English DJ, musician, multi-instrumentalist and record producer/mixer. As a solo electronic act, he has won ten MTV Video Music Awards and two Brit Awards. His records as Fatboy Slim also helped to popularise the big beat genre, which achieved mainstream popularity in the 1990s.

Cook first rose to fame in the 1980s as the bass guitarist for the Hull-based indie rock band The Housemartins, who scored a UK number-one single with their a cappella cover of Isley-Jasper-Isley's "Caravan of Love". After the band split, Cook formed Beats International whose debut album spawned their signature hit, "Dub Be Good to Me", which was another UK number-one as well as going on to become the seventh best-selling single of 1990 in the UK. Cook then went on to join numerous other acts, including Freak Power who had a hit single Turn On, Tune In, Cop Out, Pizzaman, and The Mighty Dub Katz, to moderate success. Cook adopted the Fatboy Slim moniker in 1996 and released Better Living Through Chemistry to critical acclaim. Follow-ups You've Come a Long Way, Baby; Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars; and Palookaville, as well as their associated singles, including "The Rockafeller Skank"; "Praise You"; "Right Here, Right Now"; "Weapon of Choice"; and "Wonderful Night", were also met with positive reviews and commercial success.

In 2008, Cook founded a project called The Brighton Port Authority. Cook has been responsible for successful remixes for Cornershop, Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest, Groove Armada, and Wildchild.

In 2010, in partnership with David Byrne, he released the concept music album Here Lies Love. The album was staged into a musical and premiered off-Broadway in 2013 and premiered in the United Kingdom at the Royal National Theatre in 2014. In 2017, the musical runs in the United States through the Seattle Repertory Theater. The musical garnered numerous awards and nominations to date.
