"Retox" is a song by English big beat musician Fatboy Slim, released in 2002 as a 12" vinyl single from his 2000 album Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars. The single peaked at No. 73 on the UK Singles Chart.[citation needed] The song features Ashley Slater and for this release was remixed by DJ Dave Clarke.

"It all started with Vanessa [Rand], who's Tom from The Chemical Brothers' girlfriend," Norman Cook recalled in 2001. "We [Cook, wife Zoë Ball and the Chemical Brothers] all went away on holiday together after Glastonbury last year. Because the year before, we'd all had terrible comedowns, so this time we spent a detox week at a villa in Tuscany. But on the last night we went to this vineyard and brought back a case of wine, which we drank. And Vanessa says, 'This detox thing is all very well but I can't wait to go home and start retox.' So that inspired the track."[1]
