Fatboy Slim & Riva Starr collaboration ft. Beardyman
by Daniel Haim
Electronic music dynamo, Riva Starr teams up with music icon, Fatboy Slim and famed beat boxer, Beardyman for tongue in cheek club banger, ‘Get Naked’, out December 19th on Moshi Moshi Records.
A massive name in the electronic scene, known for his unique patchwork of styles, Riva Starr’s eclectic love of contrasting sounds reverberates through ‘Get Naked’. Fatboy Slim’s Midas touch and Beardyman’s vocals add an extra dimension to the track but all the while remaining in club-banger territory. Boasting lively drum beats and a huge bass-line that is a clear nod to DHS’ 1990 house classic ‘House Of God’, ‘Get Naked’ will take dance floors across the world on an epic and exhilarating journey. A rare remix of ‘Get Naked’ is in the works from Carl Cox
After his successful Mixmag ‘One More Tune’ compiliation, Riva Starr is hot property. A Riva track strikes chords we can all relate to: from the DJs that have appreciated his work (from Tiesto to A-Trak, Jesse Rose to Annie Mac and Gilles Peterson through to David Rodigan) to everyone in between whose nights he has sound tracked.
Indeed, Riva been hard at work on the DJ circuit – with over 190 gigs in 2010 alone – strutting his stuff in some of the coolest venues on the planet such as Panorama Bar, Space, Womb and Fabric as well as some of the biggest festivals in the world from Fuji Rock to Global Gathering to Exit and beyond.
