As artists, we always dream of our work reaching other people. Some more than others, but never the less, even those whose work they make for themselves want it to have an impact on others. But, there's having an impact on others and then there's creating a dent in society. So much so, that a simple idea you had becomes so big that even pop culture could hardly keep up. Such is the case for Riva Starr, who's collab with Fatboy Slim and Beardyman "Eat Sleep Rave Repeat" became possibly one of the biggest songs in electronic music ever. The combination of those four words has sprung nearly an infinite number of variations from the worlds of sports, fashion, and almost every other category. 

The question then is, how did this even come to be? How does one create such an iconic piece of music? In this episode of In Conversation, we sit down with Riva Starr to discuss the famous track, his origins in breakbeat, and how he is able to manage so many different projects all at once, such as his new Star B project with Mark Broom, on top of countless other topics.
