Fatboy Slim and Café Mambo is about as Ibiza as it gets. The Right Here Right now DJ and producer has been spinning more White Isle memories than could imagine – and his appeal extends all ages and all kinds of people. Essential Ibiza joined the many who turned out to witness their favourite selector perform a very special evening set under the Café Mambo sign and stars. Here’s what happened when Fatboy Slim came to the sunset strip to celebrate 25 years of Café Mambo.

Pushing through the thousands in attendance, it was no shock to see the sunset strip at a standstill for this one. Fatboy Slim’s popularity refuses to wane, despite having remained a star in the scene for decades now – and why should it? He’s only getting better and his appeal to people young and old continues to grow. From big beat to techno to house to disco and more, Fatboy Slim is adapting and innovating with every production and every touch of the deck.

Finally making it through with a front-of-house view, Fatboy Slim was already in the midst of energy-packed set. His infectious style with the charisma to match is what sets him apart and his tunes had Café Mambo bouncing with the same amount of spirit and enthusiasm. With his daughter and her friend in the booth, Norman Cook is a true family advocate and it was refreshing to see other younger people enjoy some fine dance music tunes in this kind of setting.

As the night grew darker, the sunset strip continued to light-up to the sounds of Fatboy Slim. His set was archetypically Fatboy Slim. His quick transitions, vocal-heavy house bangers paired brilliantly with newer favourites and proper Ibiza tunes. After dropping Fisher’s I’m Losing It, shortly followed with Duke Dumont’s Red Light Green Light, the party mood hit its peak as an air of anticipation filled a packed-out Café Mambo. This was a perfect pre-party, that turned into a party in its own right. That’s what Fatboy Slim does best.
