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 Daniel Pearce. This larger-than-life beat maker is at the forefront of a swathe of talented producers to come out of the West Country Bass Epicentre known as Bristol, defining an entirely new strand of forward-thinking underground music.
Dan’s journey began in 2011 with the fittingly titled debut ‘Entrance Song’ on Catz N Dogz’ ‘Pets’ imprint, which was championed by the likes of Seth Troxler, Carl Cox, and Jamie Jones. Dan’s next two bass-laden bombs, ‘The Size’ and ‘Tric Trac’ were picked up by Claude Von Stroke for his flagship Dirtybird label and the rest, as they say, is history.
Now gobbling a path across clubland with unstoppable force, the last twelve months have seen Dan surpassing a number of new milestones. He won DJ Magazine’s ‘Best British DJ’, became the only DJ ever to do two BBC Radio 1 Essential Mixes within the space of a year, and was charted at #13 in Resident Advisor’s Top DJs poll. Releases like Jagged Edge and Vertigo have attained ‘underground dancefloor anthem’ status, meaning Dan’s (somewhat considerable) figure will be in the limelight for some time to come.
He has also released remixes for a broad selection of labels, adding his midas touch to the likes of Jamie Jones, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Four Tet. His blinding ‘Reruff’ of Justin Martin’s ‘Ruff Stuff’ was one of the biggest tunes of the last six months. When it comes to solo productions, however, he limits himself to a select few labels, such as Dirtybird, Pets, Hypercolour and Futureboogie.
All this is without even mentioning his skills as a DJ, which have gained him a reputation of one of the scene’s most on-point party starters. Always one to go with the moment rather than to meticulously plan out sets, one such example was an off-the-cuff set with Claude Von Stroke in Ibiza. What started off as a casual lunchtime spin to 40 people finished nine hours later to a crowd at least ten times bigger. The owner of the club then went on to say that in ten years of living on the Island, he’d never witnessed a party flow so naturally, ranking it in his top ten Ibiza moments of all time.
2013 starts an entirely new chapter for Eats Everything’s world domination, kicking off with his ‘Feather Fight’ EP with fellow Dirtybird Justin Martin and a remix of Jamie Jones’ ‘Whiff It Yall’. Then there’s ‘The Withywood Walk’ on the Dirtybird Players compilation dropping shortly after, and his collaboration with Total Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs due on Crosstown Rebels in May. Outside the DJ / artist world he’s also producing for a select few artists and is in the middle of working with singer/songerwriter Sinead Harnett for her first solo material.
Tour wise, his appetite for consumption continues to take him further afield, with tours in Asia & Australia in the coming months. Looking towards the summer, things certainly won’t be slowing down either, with shows confirmed for over a dozen festivals, including Bestival, Snowbombing and Glastonbury.
This year we will also see him continue to push Eats Everything to even loftier heights with the launch of his Edible movement. In the most basic sense, this will consolidate the many different facts of his buoyant personality and eclectic taste in music into a brand, that will manifest itself in numerous ways. Starting with a UK tour this May, this unique platform will encompass all things Eats, and will provide a vehicle with which to push him further forward than ever before.
