International DJ and producer Eats Everything, aka Dan Pearce, storms into Dundee next month as part of his 2018 tour of Scotland.
The Bristolian, who previously hosted a monthly show on BBC Radio One, promises the show, at the Reading Rooms on March 3, will be “rowdy as heck”.
“I’ve never played a bad gig in Scotland and I reckon Scots are pretty similar to Bristolians in their willingness to party, their friendliness and general madness,” he says.
“Although I’ve played Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness and somewhere in Fife, this will be my first shot at Dundee.”
Dan will head to Dundee having played Aberdeen’s Unit 51 the night before, on March 2, and then he will hit up Edinburgh for two shows on March 4 – one kicking off at The Skybar at 4pm, and then from 11pm at La Belle.
“None of it will be chilled out – we’ll be in Scotland!” he says.
“Expect some serious raving! I can’t imagine getting any sleep over the weekend. We’ll need to drink a lot of Irn Bru to keep us going!”
To mark his Scottish tour, Dan says he’s going to “do Scottish things” like whisky tasting and watching a football match.
“I don’t even like whisky but there’s a saying in Scotland that there’s a whisky for everyone, so we’ll see,” he laughs.
“I don’t know which footie match we’ll be seeing – my mates are keeping it a surprise. Whatever is on, I guess.”
For those not in the know, Dan’s productions combine house music with a wide range of other genres such as UK bass, garage, techno and jungle – seriously danceable stuff.
His journey began in 2011 with the release of Entrance Song which was championed by the likes of Seth Troxler, Carl Cox, and Jamie Jones.
His 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.
Releases like Jagged Edge and Vertigo attained underground dancefloor anthem status, meaning Eats Everything would be in the limelight for some time to come.
His DJ skills 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 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.
With work on his own music, a relentless touring schedule playing some of the world’s biggest festivals and events, Dan continues to prove himself as one of the UK’s finest dance music exports.
“This is the most prolific period in my whole career,” he says. It’s all about gigs and nonsense and having a top time.”
