‘Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat’ concert coming to City

Lotus Nightclub is sure to be busy this weekend with the Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat (ESSR) event experience happening on July 25th.

The event brings festival-quality production – lasers, confetti canons, high quality sound systems, video panels and more – to a local DJ showcase. Five DJs will showcase through the evening, starting at 9 p.m.

Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat events have been well received in Edmonton and Calgary, selling out or nearly so for each event. Tickets are $20 and are available at We Fix It Mobile Phone Repair, The Soundhouse, Edge Clothing and Lotus Nightclub.

Dima Perelman of Pearl Entertainment created the event and said in the couple years they have been around, the Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat parties have been successful.

“We were looking for ideas out of the box and thought, what if we took the money normally spent on a big headliner and spent it on production? That production means is things like lasers, strobes, video, moving lighting fixtures – the works,” Perelman said.

“We have a lot of success with these. Red Deer will be our fourth show – Calgary being the third the night before, and number five will be in Edmonton. The whole point is to blow people away and blow away their expectations of the party. They’re getting a festival-grade show for $20.”

Local DJ Marcello Delcaro, who produces as Peak Essau, will be taking the stage as the last performer of the evening with his set scheduled to start at 1 a.m.

“I was pretty excited when (Synthetic) mentioned that I’d be on the show. I wasn’t too sure of the timeline or anything or when my set was going to be, so the fact they have me on last is pretty deadly. I’m also excited because I’m not used to having a bunch of visuals or effects during my set,” he said.

Delcaro was inspired when big name DJ, Datsik came to Red Deer recently, and he was able to see some of the visuals and special effects that would be used during the ESSR party.

“In that set I got to see a little bit of the LED screens and lights and other effects. I’ve become more interested in it, so I’ll have a lot more visuals with this set than I usually would. It’ll be nice to have something go on besides the music instead of just lighting.”

Delcaro’s new EP, Invasion from Mars, will be released the night of ESSR. It’s a three-track EP that goes back to Delcaro’s hip-hop music production roots, but with electronic and trap music elements.

“The EP takes a lot from my hip-hop start – that’s how I got into production in the first place. This goes back to those hip-hop roots a bit and combines it with trap elements. It’s very dance-y and kind of a party style, too, which is new and I’m excited to show that off. It’s kind of my new style, so to speak,” Delcaro said.

“In the past I’ve produced a lot of dance music and electro house but now I’m kind of moving into a different party scene. It’s got more of that energetic party style and I’m really excited about it. It’s a three track EP and I’ve teased one of the tracks on my SoundCloud. Other than that, I’m excited to hear some feedback on it.”

Delcaro will join four other local DJs to provide the entertainment of the evening.
