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 largerthan-
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.
Gobbling a path accross clubland with unstoppable force, his first twelve months saw
Dan surpass a number of 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’ attained “underground dancefloor anthem”status, meaning Dan’s figure
would 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 2013. 2014 saw Dan
bring fresh life to a modern classic with his majestic remix of Disclosure’s ‘F For You’ and
also contributing the lead track, ‘Adam’, from 20/20 Vision’s 20th Anniversary
compilation, ‘Content’. Not forgetting, the transatlantic collaboration EP with Justin
Martin, ‘Hello Mr. Jello’.
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.
2015 started off in a typically hectic fashion for the hardest working man in dance music,
Dan Pearce aka Eats Everything delivered a two CD compilation ‘Fries With That’
on Hypercolour, launching the mix with a very special intimate Boiler Room
party from his favourite Fish and Chip shop in Bristol earlier this year. Recently, Dan has
played sets at Snowbombing, Ultra Music Festival and at Coachella as part of JESuS.
With work on his own Edible imprint, a relentless touring schedule trotting around the
globe and his own Edible movement, Eats Everything continues to prove himself as
one of the UK’s finest dance music exports.
