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. Inspired by a bizarre 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 after being absolutely rinsed throughout the summer by DJs from across the world and electronic spectrum and repeated teasing Norman has finally released the official music video to Calvin Harris remix of ‘Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat’ in the form of a “last man standing’ dance battle. 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.
The resulting action predictably leaves the dancefloor awash with blood, sweat and tears as each dancer gave it their all in their quest for dance floor domination. What was more surprising to us was the choice to set the video to Calvin Harris’ remix rather than the original but considering the year the Scotsman has had perhaps it shouldn’t surprise us at all.
