Few producers in the history of dance music have made such a rapid and far-reaching impact on the electronic music scene as Eats Everything aka Bristolian Daniel Pearce. Over the last eighteen months he has defined a whole new genre of forward-thinking underground house music that draws elements from classic house, UK bass music, Detroit techno, jungle and early rave, paying homage to everything from Randy Crawford to Ray Charles and Murk to MK.
Eats Everything is at the forefront of a new wave of talented producers coming out of Bristol, the West Country’s Bass Central, that includes Julio Bashmore, Laurie Appleblim and Waifs & Strays. In addition to this, his now defunct ,‘Coat Of Arms’ side project with Chris James has already gained widespread praise with ‘This Is Something’ signed to Jamie Jones’ new fabric mix compilation from Bristol’s iconic Futureboogie label.
While some producers spend years finding their feet, Dan made a clear statement of intent with ‘Entrance Song’ his debut release on Catz N Dogz ‘Pets Recordings’ label that was chosen by Pete Tong as his runner up as biggest tune of last summer, only pipped to the post by Jamie Jones’ iconic remix of ‘Hungry For The Power’ by Azari & III. ‘Entrance Song’ was championed all summer long by the likes of Seth Troxler, Carl Cox, Jamie Jones and Jon Digweed and was a major contributing factor to him being charted as the number twelve most charted producer of 2011 on Beatport and the number 18 most charted producer on Resident Advisor, no mean feat given that he only started releasing records in the second half of the year. By the end of last year, Dan had set a record by being the first dance music producer to have two different tracks featured on two different shows on Radio One for thirteen consecutive weeks. With huge support from Pete Tong, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac and Andy George & Jaymo, Eats Everything has rapidly become the toast of the UK airwaves.
Following on from ‘Entrance Song’, Dan’s next two bass-laden bombs ‘The Size’ and ‘Tric Trac’ were picked up by Claude Von Stroke for his flagship dirtybird label, for release last October. Prior to release ‘The Size’ was made Pete Tong’s ‘Essential New Tune’ the first in a series of no less than five ‘Essential New Tune Contenders’ so far clocked up. Since then Dan has gone on to remix The Ting Tings, Jamie Jones, Totally Enourmous Extinct Dinosaur, X-Press 2, We Have Band, Roy Davis Junior and Crazy P on a broad selection of labels including Get Physical, Shy FX’s Digital Soundboy, Classic, Skint, PMR, FFRR, Leftroom and Sony/Deconstructed.
Dan has upcoming releases on Futureboogie, dirybird, Hypercolour and Pets Recordings.
