Eats Everything has come a long way since he first got his hands on a set of decks. After growing up immersed in dance music, he spent the best part of a decade DJing around various clubs in his Bristol hometown, before a break with a regular job allowed him to start taking production seriously. His big break came with 2011’s Pets Recordings smash ‘Entrance Song’, and as his touring career took off, releases on the likes of Hot Creations, Dirtybird, Crosstown Rebels and Method followed. 2015 proved to be one of Eats Everything’s biggest years yet, with the release of his debut mix album and the launch of his own label and events series Edible, culminating in being named ‘Best British DJ’ at DJ Mag's Best of British Awards.
Now, Eats Everything steps up to join the fabric compilation series, having first taken to the club's decks in 2011, and has been returning regularly ever since.
"I played a set of what I believe are “fabric records”. Some are old, some are new, some are bangers, some are groovers, some are trippy, some are euphoric but they all have some kind of meaning to me and I have played every one of them at fabric. I really enjoyed putting this together and I hope people enjoy it too." Eats Everything
The result is a musical treat for lovers of all shades of house, from the classic to the modern. Kicking off with a classic Danny Tenaglia edit of The Ananda Project’s ‘Cascades of Colour’, whose echoing, hypnotic vocals prove an attention-grabbing, nostalgia-tinged start to the 75 minutes. Expertly building pace, the mix takes in laidback deep house groover ‘Kaimanawa’ by Cavalier and the darker ‘Nostalgia’ by Peter Horrevorts, before the distinctive flute melody of Lauren Lane’s ‘Diary of a Madwoman’ is teased in. Forthcoming on Edible, it's the first of two special new tracks included on the mix.
A ravey, uplifting section of chords, cowbells and vocals keeps the pace up, before the minimal, stuttering percussion and subtle buss-saw synths of the Jeff Bennett remix of Tim J’s ‘Motion’ takes us down a notch into deeper, minimalistic territory. Classic highlights over the second half of the mix also include Booka Shade’s dark, stomping ‘Trespass 06’, and Golden Boy and Miss Kittin’s career-making 2001 hit ‘Rippin Kittin’. Following ‘Baby Talk’, a production that Cajmere created especially for the mix, Eats signs off with the 1996 classic, ‘Galaxia’ by Moonman. A track with real personal significance, its emotion-laden synths and uplifting, spacey chords, it’s the perfect way to round off a diverse mix.
