When London-based artist and producer Riva Starr joined forces with UK dance legend Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim, for a special non-album track entitled ‘Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat‘ the chances were always high that the track they made was going to be an absolute belter and we said as much back when we made the track our single of the week back in June. Inspired by a bizarrely described ficitonal encounter he and Riva had in New York earlier in the year Norman tells as thus:
“Me and Stef (Riva Starr) were out vinyl shopping in Williamsburg, brooklyn earlier this year when we met this dude ranting in the street about some 3 day bender he had been on (and possibly still was….) we hooked him into our serato and chopped him up into a tune. I just wish we’d caught his full name…”
Now we know Norman wouldn’t let anything like truth get in between him and a good story so the back ground is little more than entertainment with Beardyman being revealed as the tracks vocalist but after being absolutely rinsed throughout the summer by DJs from across the world and electronic spectrum and finally having the official music video to Calvin Harris remix of ‘Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat’ released in the form of a “last man standing’ dance battle we are pleased to report that the anthem is doing well in the commercial charts , currently riding high at number 2 at the midway point which we hope with a little more momentum may secure the coveted UK top 40 number one spot come Sunday. The video covers the real life event created by Fatboy and Riva in which they launched a “Rave Endurance Event” wherein participants were required to continue dancing for as long as humanely possible with the last entrant dancing crowned the winner.
