Born Quentin Cook in Bromley on July 31, 1963, Cook joined the Hull-based pop group the Housemartins in 1986, replacing founding member Ted Key. After the group split the following year, Cook became involved with the burgeoning acid house scene, pairing with producers Tim Jeffrey and J.C. Reid toward the end of the decade to form Pizzaman. The trio nailed three Top 40 hits together ("Trippin' on Sunshine," "Sex on the Streets," and "Happiness") before Cook splintered off to record with similarly styled outfits Freak Power and Beats International in the early '90s.
He shut most of his other production activities down in the following years to focus on his latest incarnation, Fatboy Slim, which began with a trio of singles and the full-length Better Living Through Chemistry. Cook was also called in to add his remixing skills to Jean-Jacques Perrey's proto-electronica classic "Eva," released as a 12" and CD single in 1997. In addition to his FBS work, Cook also recorded the Skip to My Loops sample CD, a popular studio tool sporting a mélange of sample-ready drum loops, analog squelches, and assorted noises. In early 1998, his remix of Cornershop's "Brimful of Asha" spent several weeks at number one in the British charts.
Fatboy Slim's eagerly anticipated second LP, You've Come a Long Way, Baby, followed later that year. The album went platinum in the U.S. and spawned two international hits, "The Rockafeller Skank" and "Praise You," which also boasted a Spike Jonze-directed video that earned three MTV Video Music Awards as well as two Grammy nominations. "The Rockafeller Skank," "Praise You," and other songs from You've Come a Long Way, Baby ended up on countless soundtracks and commercials, cementing Fatboy Slim's unique position as a critically acclaimed and immensely popular act.
Cook also recorded several mix albums, including the first disc of the Radio 1 compilation Essential Selection, Vol. 1 and his own On the Floor at the Boutique. The latter was released domestically in the U.S. in early 2000 to help fans withstand the wait for his third album, Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars, which arrived that fall. Two mix albums -- Live on Brighton Beach and Big Beach Boutique II -- appeared in 2002. During 2003, Cook and his wife -- popular British TV presenter Zöe Ball -- separated for a brief period. They soon patched things up but the split was a heavy influence on 2004's Palookaville, the most laid-back and moody Fatboy Slim album yet. Collecting his singles along with a couple of important remixes, The Greatest Hits: Why Try Harder appeared in 2006. In 2008, Cook announced he would be retiring the Fatboy Slim name and launching a new project, Brighton Port Authority, or the BPA for short. As of 2009, the Fatboy Slim name was still appearing, such as on the 2009 mix CD Dance Bitch, and as BPA, Cook released I Think We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat in 2009. His next project, released in 2010 as Fatboy Slim, involved production work, collaboration, and co-billing with David Byrne on the Imelda Marcos concept release Here Lies Love." - Sean Cooper, AllMusicGuide
In 2009, he recorded a mix for Fabric's venerated compilation series and released second album "Bird Brain", which encompassed many diverse aspects of dance music and beyond. It included a collaboration with the legendary P-Funk bassist Bootsy Collins as well as two tracks that went to number #1 & #2 on Beatport respectively.
His label, dirtybird, continues to surprise and innovate in the underground dance scene. The label features an enigmatic combination of house, funk, dirty-bass and electronica. Since the creation of dirtybird, Claude has continued to be the dedicated A&R man, signing over 100 EPs and demonstrating his incredible ear for what works on the dance-floor. Staying true to Crenshaw's detroit heritage, dirtybird donates 10% of its profits to a children's music school in Detroit.
A lot of the success of dirtybird and VonStroke can be attributed to a good attitude. Claude VonStroke does not scowl and look mean while he DJs. He does not pretend to know everything and he truly loves his fans. He is grateful to be doing music for a living and he knows that the reason people go to parties is to shake their ass and have fun.
In this day and age of music cross-pollination, Claude VonStroke sits at the forefront of all that is good, proper and most importantly fun. He's just as at home remixing Kenny Larkin or Infinity Ink as he is dropping multiple #1 Beatport hits. DJ wise, his relentless touring of every major city, festival and basement after-party around the world has only enriched this unique perspective on music.
This September, a much anticipated third artist album will come from the dirtybird chief - this time perhap a slightly more moody effort but overall still just as exciting and innovative as previous works.
"Urban Animal" mirrors the way VonStroke Djs - a wide range of house music with sprinkles of drum n bass, funk and soul. The album will be followed up by a massive world tour this fall starting in North America and travelling to Australia and Europe over the winter months.
In April 2012, Maya's position as one of the world's top DJs was solidified with the release of her multi-award winning edition to K7's legendary DJ Kicks mix series which gained international chart success and massive critical praise.
Maya released the tracks 'Not Listening' as Maya Jane Coles and 'Meant to Be' under Maya's 'Nocturnal Sunshine' moniker as exclusive tracks from the compilation. The mix also included tracks by the likes of Phil Kieran & White Noise Larse, Marcel Dettman and T.Williams and has proved to be one of the biggest commercial successes since the series began with the mix hitting the home pages of major sites such as Deezer, Aol Spinner and MTV Iggy.
Club smashes "Getting Freaky" on Heidi's Jackathon Jams label and a return to her original label home Dogmatik with the release of "Watcher" followed later in the year as well as her Ushuaia set broadcasted live as part of BBC Radio 1's famed Ibiza Weekend.
Maya's final original release of 2012 was Maya's much lauded genre defying release 'Easier to Hide' coming out her own I/AM/ME label in December hinting at what may be to come with the inclusion of album track "Easier to Hide" leading the EP.
With her debut album having dropped in July 2013 Maya will have played in around 40 countries worldwide by the end of year taking in festivals like Fuji Rocks (Japan), Coachella (USA), Sonar (Spain), Ultra (USA), Lowlands (Holland), T in the Park (UK), Pukkelpop (Belgium), Bestival (UK), Creamfields (UK) and Summadayze (Australia) amongst countless others all around the world. Having previously played at Les Transmusicales (France), Melt (Germany), Benicassim (Spain), Electric Zoo (USA), Global Gathering (UK), Detroit Movement (USA) and Exit (Croatia) amongst others.
He first came on to the scene in early 2011 with underground hit "Let It Ride" on Noir Music. It became an Ibiza anthem picking up support left, right and centre. He's since gone on to release a number of club hits on Get Physical, Noir Music, Defected as well as Moda Black and has remixed Shadow Child, Pete Tong, Friendly Fires, Russ Chimes and most recently Yousef which remained at No.1 in the Beatport Deep House Chart for weeks.
He has enjoyed huge support from Richie Hawtin, Luciano, Joris Voorn, Jamie Jones, Richy Ahmed, Laurent Garnier, Pete Tong, Booka Shade, Seth Troxler, Maceo Plex and M.A.N.D.Y to name a few.
2012 saw him play some of the hottest clubs in the world, touring South America, Australia, Ibiza, and Europe and having some killer new productions and interesting new album concepts up his sleeve, 2013 bodes very well for this particular Yorkshireman.
While their warm-ups are routine, Mejia and Toth's performances are anything but. GTA sets are musical joyrides with the guys at the wheel, as they speed from trap and hip-hop into booming electro, take unexpected detours with rock and R&B, and screech to a halt for
massive bass drops. Despite GTA's wild, unpredictable sets, everything the duo does – both on stage and in the studio – is unified by a simple mission statement: death to genres.
"A lot of people argue about the kind of music they listen to, what's cool and what's not," Mejia explains. "But for us, it's just about good music."
