Guys, seriously, throwing stuff at Jeff Mills is not cool. Throwing stuff at anyone on stage is not cool—unless, say, it’s a hardcore show, and the band is spitting on you—but it’s especially not cool to throw stuff at one of Detroit techno’s true masters. I mean, c’mon!
What a morning for gear news! We’ve got updates from Nord, Pro Tools, Novation, and plenty more in the lead-up to Musikmesse, plus, your usual dose of music news of all sorts, so cruise on through!
Chicken Lips’ deep-house staple “He Not In” features a bassline that almost everyone recognizes, and is still a fixture in classic house sets 10 years after its original release. Now, Defected has enlisted Groove Armada, Noir, and Eats Everything to give it a remix, and there’s plenty of diversity on offer on this EP. Where Groove Armada’s Dub Reconstruction has a disco-house vibe, Eats Everything completely reworked the track, keeping the original’s unique funk but adding his signature Dirtybird sound. As a fan of the original track since 2002, Noir (aka René Kristensen) also offered his own personal edit, a version he has cut to fit his own live DJ sets, and it’s today’s Track of the Day.
Justin Martin and Eats Everything have been making a splash on Dirtybird label for a while now, but last year’s successful solo releases, BBC Radio 1 Essential mixes, and non-stop touring schedules accompanied by a summer residency in Ibiza have just further cemented their—and their label’s—place amongst dance music’s finest.
It’s holiday time, and in that spirit, Native Instruments are giving away a free download of DRIVER until the end of the year. But apparently not everyone got the “giving” memo, and somebody yanked all of Eats Everything’s stuff at the DJ Mag Awards. Read on for the whole lowdown in today’s roundup.
If the Ruff Ryders ever decided to resurrect their eponymous entertainment faction with house producers as members, Eats Everything and Justin Martin would certainly be amongst those to be first on their invite list. Eats is what one might call a bassaholic and his rework of Martin’s 123-BPM techy bomb “Ruff Stuff” shows he’s deserving of high-profile accolades from the likes of Pete Tong.
From Bristol to San Francisco, rising Dirtybird star Eats Everything is becoming a true household name with his infectious style of jacking house music. With a new record imminent on Claude VonStroke’s west-coast imprint as well as a slew of gigs around the Halloween period, the man behind “Entrance Song” gave us a little rundown on his favorite tracks to spin at this special time of the year. Check them out after the jump.
Along with the likes of Eats Everything, Julio Bashmore, and others, A1 Bassline (aka Christian Sibthorpe) is part of the new generation of UK house producers that have been carving out their own style while taking in influences from garage, jungle, and drum & bass. Last year marked the release of his A1 Bassline EP on Claude VonStroke’s Dirtybird label, with another standout track, “Why Do You,” featuring on the Dirtybird Hatched Vol. 1 compilation.
