Fatboy Slim Sampled Greta Thunberg's UN Speech
Published Oct 09, 2019Fatboy Slim is the latest artist to pay homage to Greta Thunberg's powerful UN speech on climate change.
The British DJ amplified that very speech during a set last weekend in Gateshead, U.K., playing a mashup of the speech and his own song "Right Here, Right Now."
The mashup itself was created by South African electronic artist David Scott.
Fatboy Slim initially reposted Scott's creation last month, but it picked up momentum again after he played it live last Friday (October 4).
"When Fatboy Slim picked up the video and reposted it, it was a massive shock and a massive honour as well," Scott told AFP. "I've always looked up to him as a music producer."
Watch the original clip, as well as footage of Fatboy Slim's performance of the mashup, below.
