A new wave of DJ’s for Radio 1’s lauded residency series In DJ’s We Trust was launched this week – amongst them Ticket Tannoy favourite Eats Everything. Deadmau5, Helena Hauff, Jessy Lanza and Metrik are also gracing the airwaves for the channel in 2017.
Eats Everything, real name Dan Pearce, kicked off the residency series last week with Waze & Odyssey’s ‘Down with Tha’, and the assertion that “I’m called Eats Everything because I eat a lot and I play everything. For the next two hours I’m going bring you techno, disco, boogie, house music and everything in between.”
Contents of the show indeed covered a wide range, with sounds from Route 94, The Fantastic Aleems, A Sagittariun, Virginia and bezzie friend TIga. Tom Rio, resident of the legendary Just Jack party in the duo’s hometown of Bristol, provided a guest mix this week, the beginning of a drive by Pearce to showcase mixes from the best resident DJ’s in the UK.
Afterwards, Pearce took to Facebook to say that he is “speechless” at being asked to host his own show on Radio 1. “I have been listening to Pete Tong since I was 13 - so now to say that I might see him in the Radio 1 Canteen and perhaps share a cup of tea with him after we have clocked in is mind-blowing.”
We’re looking forward to his weekly installments of cheeky commentary and top tunes.
