Its been a whirlwind twelve months for our man Dan Pearce, aka. Eats Everything. Having exploded onto the scene with his mighty Pets release "Entrance Song", a track that went on to soundtrack the whole of the summer season and far beyond, the hungry Bristolian has gone on to become the most in demand DJ/Producer of the moment.
Since the release of "Entrance Song", Eats' rumbling bottom end has seen him sitting pretty amongst the real movers and shakers. His commitment to releasing original material with just a core crew of labels impresses, with San Francisco's dirtybird and of course Pets now considering him as a key member of the families. 2012 kicked off with "Ignorance Is Bliss", his co-production with Claude VonStroke, opening dirtybird's super successful "Hatched" compilation and since then its been a musical snowball with Eats Everything remixes featuring on Leftroom, Hypercolour, Futureboogie and Classic Music Company. He also joined an exalted group of producers lending their remix talents to "Tapes & Money" the current single from Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.
A technically gifted DJ, Eats Everything has been showing off his skills each and every weekend since that first release. A debut live Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 was followed by a whistle-stop tour of the US earlier this spring, culminating in an exciting and successful Miami Music Week. A busy summer season awaits too, as he prepares to embark on his first full Ibizan stint, playing shows for All Gone Pete Tong and We Love...
And so to the "Jagged Elbow" ep, the latest Pets Recordings offering from Eats Everything. Lead cut "Jagged Edge" sees him, by his own admission, stepping into slightly different territory. Fear not, the bass still rules, all be it in a more staccato fashion, but its an overall deeper vibe. Guitar licks and cinematic horn stabs work together with a double-barrelled vocal and monster breakdown to absolute perfection.
