Eats Everything on Harbourlife Festival & Australian Shows vs. The World
He’s a man of not only a lot of talent, but also many projects too. I don’t actually know how EATS EVERYTHING even has the time to breathe.
The producer does a heap of work behind the scenes, as well as taking time to travel to all corners of the globe to deliver some fresh house to clubs near and far.
He was out here not too long ago for Harbourlife Festival, killing it alongside big name acts like Booka Shade, and we were lucky to grab a few minutes from his hectic schedule to chat about Harbourlife, the future and his involvement with his side projects.
You’re out here in Australia for Harbourlife Festival (which is tomorrow), and you’re playing alongside acts like Booka Shade, Bicep and more. How does it feel to be part of such a global community of like-minded acts?
It feels like a dream come true – I am doing the thing I love the most alongside some of my heroes and peers.
It’s been so hot in Sydney these last few days. How did you prepare for Harbourlife?
Same as I always do for big festivals, listen to records and gauge it when I get there. It is impossible to plan for something, especially when you have not played it before as you have no idea what it will be like.
How have the shows you’ve played here in Australia compare to previous shows internationally?
Sydney shows were great and very different. The Melbourne show was also great and the city seems to have a wicked clubbing scene especially compared to other cities. Perth and Brisbane were also fantastic. As a whole the country seems to be in a very good position musically.
Your Edible bEats imprint is such an innovative concept – what lead you to consider the label’s output in a podcast medium rather than a strictly music only format?
I play a lot of places and sometimes the residents are not that great, but when they are it really makes a difference to the night and my job. I want this platform to give these residents the attention that they deserve.
I love the concept behind your new track ‘Dancing (Again!)’. Do you find that you tend to come back to your older sounds and try to repurpose them?
No, I generally try to always move forward with my sound, this track is essentially a bootleg.
I was reading an interview that took place a little earlier this year with Trap Magazine. You were asked about whether there was an album in the works. Do you think creating an album is something that you’re particularly interested in? Or do you prefer single releases?
Never say never, but at the moment I don’t see the point in it for me personally.
