After the original single was released by Fatboy Slim, Riva Starr, and Beardyman, ‘Eat Sleep Rave Repeat’ took over the festival and club circuit, quickly becoming the most-played ID during 2013. The single was taken to the next level when Calvin Harris put his touches on it. Released on the 27th of October, 2013, this remix took the infectious and memorable vocals of the original and combined it with a powerful acid-infused big room house drop that proved to be so powerful it would send any mainstage crowd into a frenzy. Supported by numerous top DJs, this remix is still delightfully fresh to this day, with crowds loving it when it’s played.
Across twelve years and five albums, Scotland’s Calvin Harris has set his own agenda for global domination. From the retro-centric vibes of debut album, ‘I Created Disco’, to spearheading the American EDM explosion with third album ’18 Months’ – which brought a succession of global hits including ‘Feel So Close’ and GRAMMY award-winning ‘We Found Love’, to his most recent conceptual LP ‘Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1’ – which paired the Scottish heavyweight alongside Frank Ocean, Migos, Pharrell Williams, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj amongst a who’s who of musical luminaries – his career has been underpinned by a desire to take his sound into new and meaningful avenues, crossing boundaries along the way. Gaining chart domination whilst continuing to channel fresh sounds, his omnipotent presence on the Las Vegas circuit and festival main stages across the globe make Calvin Harris one of electronic dance music’s most visible superstars to date. Having already combined with Rag’n’Bone Man for an explosive single in 2019, the year ahead points to more genre-bending quality from one of the most influential studio artists turned crossover stars of the past decade.
