Fatboy Slim is going head to head with Australia on his upcoming release: a remix EP aptly named ‘Fatboy Slim vs Australia’
Northlane, who are 2017 ARIA award winners in the hard rock category have covered a Fatboy classic, ‘Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat’.
“Fatboy Slim is an iconic name in electronic music and for many of us, our first introduction to techno, which has lead us down a rabbit hole of new genres and inspired us to take risks with our music. Reinterpreting this song and adding a little bit of the Northlane sound into it was a challenge for us and we hope that we’ve done it justice. We believe that the metal and electronic genres share many similarities and we’re thrilled we got the opportunity to contribute to this release!” says Jon from the band.
Listen to the track below:
Alongside Northlane, other artists to feature on the release includeTKST, Set Mo, The Aston Shuffle, Sam La More (a member of 2017 ARIA award winner act PNAU), Carmada andLO’99, each tackling hits like ‘Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat’, ‘Weapon of Choice’ and ‘Right Here, Right Now’ from the Grammy Award winning artist.
Fatboy Slim reveals “I’m totally down for vs Australia, sounds like a dual and a whole lot of fun if ever I heard it ….let the people decide when I come to play in January…dance bitch”
With the 20-year anniversary of critically acclaimed album ‘You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby’ coming in 2018, this re-work of his most popular hits comes at the perfect time, giving Fatboy Slim fans new and old a chance to enjoy the tracks that made him a household name.
