Eats Everything + Essential Mix

Not to toot our own horn or anything, but ever since we here at Bright & Shiny got wind of the uprising being staged in the English city of Bristol, we've been posting, and posting, and posting about it. We simply cannot get enough of the futuristic bass-infused house sounds pouring out of the place, and that's due in no small part to the fine work of Dan Pearce, AKA Eats Everything.  You see, Pearce has a strange affliction which makes him prone to eat everything, and this shows in his productions.  His work pays homage to house and bass-music greats as often as it does to R&B stars of the '90s and early 2000's (a venerable golden age for pop music), like Jagged Edge and Faith Evans. In short,

Eats Everything is putting the black back in house music. 

Since this past spring, his tracks have seen release on Berlin's Pets Recordings and San Fransisco's dirtybird Recordings, with more to come. In addition to being an ace producer, Pearce is an equally talented DJ, peppering his mixes with exclusive 'beefy' reworks that you'll only hear at his hands. So it comes as no surprise that Pete Tong, being the tastemaker that he is, commissioned our friend Eats Everything for an Essential Mix, which aired last Saturday on BBC Radio 1. Recorded live at Bristol In:Motion, the mix is a particularly energetic entry into the series' hallowed halls, and is chock full of exclusive Eats Everything edits and unreleased tracks you're likely to only hear here. So give it a spin and, as always, don't forget to turn up the volume! Tracklist & bonus tunes after the jump.

And if that wasn't enough for you, check out the most recent release of Pearce's side project with Chris James, Coat of Arms.
A touch deeper than most his work, this release from Eats Everything is out this week on Pets Recordings.
I'll leave you with yet another mix. Recorded in promotion for his debut at Fabric London, this mix showcases more of Pearce's own work, as well as that of fellow Bristolians. Be sure to keep your ears open for his track "Jagged Edge," which takes over around the 18.5 minutes mark. My favorite track of the moment, "Jagged Edge" is due out early this Spring on Pets Recordings. You heard it here first!
