The Legendary BristolianEats Everything returns to BBC Radio 1‘s Essential Mix! It’s been just over a year from his explosive live debut, which you can read here. This time around the big man utilises his full selection of edits, re-edits, remixes, reworks, reebeefs and VEEEYEPEEs!
For those of you that missed the original broadcast, fret not, we’ve got it here for you guys:
It’s a Futureboogie love-in for Team WANARB at the moment, and, after showing our knickers to Waifs & Strays a few weeks ago, we’ve now turned our lusty attentions to Behling & Simpson. Riding high on the wave of Bristolian duos currently taking dance music by storm, the boys will be hitting up the bustling metropolis that is Stoke Newington in Hackney to play the Question Mark Bar for our friends on NTS, Way Back Here. We caught up with B&S (as they call themselves) to find out why saying “hard bop” makes them laugh, what they’d be doing if they weren’t making music and why in the event of a zombie apocalypse it would just be them and Art Department left…
So I’m currently taking a well deserved break in America right now (Denver to be precise), and I thought I’d knock up a cheeky top 10 of some of the house / deep house tracks I’m digging at the moment. These are in no particular order:
Bank holidays are normally jam-packed with amazing nights out as every promoter rolls out a dream bill to attract clubbers in their droves. Potty Mouth have taken the initiative by taking the Thursday night and having the best night going allowing you as long or as little of bank holidays and weekend to recover. Which is just as well as they’ve laid on an epic line-up consisting of Waifs & Strays, Coat Of Arms and WiLDKATS. We caught up with Bristolian duo Waifs & Strays (or as their mums call them Rich and Amos) ahead of their set to quiz them all about house music, their hometown and their influences…
If, like me, you’ve gone home for Christmas, then chances are you’re stuck out in the countryside somewhere trying to avoid Christmas music and awaiting relatives who you know will spend the next few days mercilessly taking the piss out of you. So if you know that pain, then surely you can forgive me producing yet another of these end-of-year lists.
I’ve limited myself to only five though as I figure most people will skim mega-long lists. Over the last month there’s been poll after poll, list after list; all essentially saying the same thing. But they’re never going to say anything much ground-breaking are they? It’s just us collectively saying “yep, I really liked that, I did.” So these aren’t necessarily my five favourite tracks. These are just the five tracks it was impossible to avoid this year.
Regarded by many as one of the break through artists of 2011 – Eats Everything (aka Dan Pearce) has enjoyed such a fantastic year on the underground house scene, with releases on labels Pet Recordings and Dirty Bird riding high in the Beat Port charts, it came as no surprise he would be supplying an Essential Mix some time soon.
Recorded live in his home town of Bristol in front of a crowd of 1000 at In:Motion, a converted skate park with a network of warehouses, which features killer line ups every weekend and has been dubbed “Bristol’s Underground Music Season” (I want to go).

Bristol-based producer Dan Pearce aka Eats Everything must be having a bloody brilliant month, with his sublime track Entrance Song making a big splash pretty much everywhere. Released by Pets Recordings, catz n dogz’s label, it has been featured on Maya Jane Coles Essential Mix (actually, one of the highlights of the whole mix for me), appeared in both VisionQuest and Tensnake’s Beatport charts, obviously championed by catz and dogz in their recent DJ sets and heavily promoted by Beatport themselves, riding high in their house chart and bestowed with a large banner which according to Eats Everything’s Fanpage is his first and therefore bonerific. Aww.
Seriously, this track is amazing. And the sounds coming out of Bristol at the moment almost make me want to move back to the West Country. Almost. For now I’m content to dance round my lounge to it on full blast whilst drinking cider. My upstairs neighbour, she’s not so keen. Maybe she doesn’t like the bass?
Anyway have a listen and then GO BUY THIS. This is *the* tune this summer.
