Muthafucking Fatboy Slim is #3. This dude is one of the biggest DJs in the world and one of the best producers as well. He is one of the originators of the Big Beat sound and has been getting radio play since the mid 90′s. He’s headlined every big dance concert on the planet and his music videos with Spike Jonze are some of the most legendary videos ever made. The video above featuring Christopher Walken ‘s ridiculous dance moves was nominated for MTV’s Video of the Year along with taking home the most Moonmen in 01. His 1998 video for Praise You, which was not only directed by, but stars Spike Jonze won a VMA for Breakthrough Video of the Year. Recently he’s appeared on the Blur’s latest album, released a Gorillaz type project as Brighton Port Authority, and is currently working on a project with David Byrne. This dude has been on top forever, and as far a single DJ’s go, you cant get any bigger than Fatboy Slim.
