Review: Huesca's Andres Campo has appeared on a who's who of labels in recent times, such as homeboys Florida Music, Suara, Toolroom, Glasgow Underground and Elrow Music. He can now add Eats Everythings Edible to the list: they present his new hit prediction "Nochord" which is a sleek and rolling tech-house cut that's a full of attitude and builds in suspense. Plus, those looped diva vocals atop are an impressive touch. If that was not enough, we are then treated to an explosive remix by the always on point Alan Fitzpatrick: who gives the track a slamming peak time rendition that's a perfect soundtrack for darkly clandestine warehouse raves (as much as it is for weekend mischief on The White Isle!). Campo was nominated for Best Techno Artist and Favourite Artist of the Public at the Vicious Music Awards in 2015 and is resident at the famed Florida 135 club.
Review: Quality boompty tech-house with added dancefloor dynamics, from the one and only Cuartero here. Malaga's finest has presented top tracks of late on Saved, Hot Creations and Knee Deep in Sound - and this new one for Eats Everything's label brings even more heat. From the rolling liquid groove action of "Rapuh" which is perfectly suited to the warm up ot afterhours alike, through to the groovy minimal funk of "Mo Chi Chi" - this EP comes right in time for the summer season on The White Isle.
Review: House colossus Eats Everything returns to action following a 10-month hiatus, in which his most recent singles, Green Velvet hook-up 'The Duster' and the accurately titled 'Big Discs', became dancefloor anthems. This first appearance on his Edible imprint is likely to be just as successful. "Rita's E" is a throbbing, warehouse-friendly treat, with cut-up, manipulated vocal samples and warped electronics riding an acid bass-propelled 4/4 groove. In contrast, "Veronica's Electronica" layers stylish, spoken vocals atop the kind of heavyweight house rhythm that would once have emerged from the studios of DJ Sneak and, yes, Green Velvet. It's a simple, no-nonsense kind of cut, but one that will sound immense over a sizeable sound system.
Review: Eats Everything's Edible imprint is back. The time has finally come for their tenth release on the label. "Still Workin" is the massive tune from Elliot Adamson. The label couldn't be happier to announce it to be from him. Adamson could only come from Newcastle; there's that up-front attitude for a start, as well as an appetite for new music that sits out with cosmopolitan scenes. Digging into his record bag, Elliott will preview his set at Edible's OFF Sonar party with this perfectly balanced blend of house and techno. Second offering "Where The Fucks My Flanger At?" has that real upfront party-starting vibe and that Reese-ish dark and humming bassline is a nice touch.
Review: Following up some fantastic releases by the likes of Lord Leopard, Andres Campo and Mele, Eats Everything's label returns with its next installment. Here, legendary British deep house duo Luke Solomon (Classic) & Justin Harris (Music For Freaks) aka Freaks return, teaming up here with Windy City legend Diz Washington AKA 012 (Vizual Records) for the deep and boompty late night jam "Mr Computer Man". Philadelphian legend and Ovum Records boss Josh Wink steps into deliver an exhilarating remix. His rendition forgoes the raw and dusty aesthetic, for something more high-tech on this strobe-lit 303 acid epic.
Review: The enigmatic Lord Leopard is back on Eats Everything's Edible label with more boompty and bass-driven wares that are guaranteed to rock the main room at peak time. Considering his previous credentials releasing on top labels like Dirtybird, you know you are in good hands with this dude! The Cornish recluse serves up what is probably his toughest groove yet on the fierce funk roller "Quit Moanin'" which will mix well with your Gruuv or Material tracks, while the intoxicating 'woop woop' of "The Connect" is perfect for those heads-down moments right after the peak time - and perfect for losing yourself under the strobe light.
Review: Following up some great releases on Music For Freaks and Dirtybird and some impressive remixes for the likes of Mele (Lobster Boy) Red Rack?em (Bergerac), the Cornish recluse Lord Leopard returns to his rightful home at Eats Everything's Edible label "for a slammin' head scrambler of a single". "The Bumps" is a glorious riot of big filtered disco stabs, incessant horn blasts, funky disco guitar licks and rolling house rhythms. All tossed together by the "Cornish recluse" and garnished with an amorous male vocal refrain and dramatic drum rolls. Tasty!
Review: Merseyside's rising star Mele is back, following up this year's explosive bass anthem "Queens Day" with the absolutely mental "Scouse Afrika". He borrowed heavily from Latin rhythms on his last hit as we all know and executed it wonderfully. This time around he looks to Afro spiritual vibes for inspiration and as a result comes up with some incredible riddims. Next track "Sleepless" is much more straight ahead, this rolling and druggy tech-house stormer is the kind of thing you could hear rocking loved up crowds on The White Isle next Summer.
Review: Woolford is the latest producer to appear on Edible, after appearances by its owner Eats Everything and Rhythm Masters. The UK producer is on a high at the moment, having recently released one of the best mixes in the Fabriclive series as Special Request. Working under his own name for this release, he delivers the bugged out "Chaos", a wiry, jacking acid groove that has echoes of its author's DJ background at Back to Basics. On "Meditate", Woolford opts for a very different approach; sampling a euphoric female vocal repeating the phrase 'the way you thrill me', he fuses it with a shuffling, chugging rhythm and spine-tingling strings to create a real summer anthem.
Review: Legendary Brighton duo Rhythm Masters (aka Dis-Funktional) are back. These fellas have been in the business for 20 years so you can definitely trust the DJs on this one. "Feel Your Love" sees them crossover into techno territory on this properly stomping groove that that can easily signal that the peak time has arrived. Second offering "Deep Soul" like its name may suggest provides some contrast and we were really feeling this one to be honest. This deep and slinky progressive house journey is properly made for some woozy dancefloor journeys with its deep bass, hypnotising pads and mesmerising steel drums all working to perfection.
Review: Fresh off a great release recently on Seth Troxler's Play It Say It, Fuse London stalwart Seb Zito is back again - this time for the always reliable Edible imprint run by none othe than Eats Everything. The Twenty.2 EP features more swing than you can shake an MPC at -rolling and funtional tech house jams that you've come to know and love the man for. From "Slap Dash" with its druggy and wobbly bassline that's the perfect sound of an East London warehouse party after midnight, through to the very UK style bounce of "Bit Of Kip" and the soulful and bittersweet mood lighting of "Haphazard" being perfrct for all those afterhours solitary dancers.
E Is For Edible (continuous DJ mix) - (58:56) 126 BPM
Review: Despite being just two years old, Nick Harris and Eats Everything's label has established itself as one of modern house music's most promising imprints. This collection, which features tracks from Edible's first ten releases, shows why. It begins with the jerky groove, prowling bass and vocal screeches of Lord Leopard's "Mark of Passion", while Lauren Lane's "Diary of a Madwoman" documents a darker, less party-focused take on Edible's rhythm-heavy, off-beat sound. Brett Johnson, whose work has undoubtedly inspired many of the artists on the label, makes an appearance with the driving, heads-down "Jack", while Rhythm Masters deliver a disco-heavy take on the sound with "Feel Your Love". All in all, this compilation is good enough to eat.
Review: British power duo Waze & Odyssey take a break from their always reliable W&O Street Tracks for an appearance on Edible; the Bristol based imprint by Eats Everything and Nick Harris and follows up great releases by Steve Mac and Robert Bruce aka Rhythm Masters and Merseyside's Mele.We've first got the bouncy and funked up tech house of "Down With Tha" where that very vocal loop is chopped up to perfection. Then we have got the deep and sexy tribal house groove of "Seizure" which will take you back to the turn of the millennium on this west coast style groove, that calls to mind the heyday of Hipp-E & Halo or Tyler Stadius.
