You might remember back in December we brought you the news that online electronic music magazine and global dance music connoisseurs Resident Advisor had teamed up with the wireless hi-fi speakers SONOS to launch a four part film series called #ORIGINS, tracing the roots of some of electronic music’s biggest stars. The documentary film series uncovers the intimate stories of Chris Liebing, Eats Everything, Magda and Matthew Dear going back to their home towns and identifying those formative places and moments that influenced their careers and lives.
In the second part of the new film series, we discover the corporate life that Dan Pearce (aka Eats Everything) escaped to become one of the scene’s biggest DJs. It was quite heart warming to see Dan reminiscing about his early rise in Bristol (where we are based ourselves). The deeply knit community in Bristol’s vibrant music scene is why we love doing what we do, and it was really nice to see Dan appreciating it too. Dan Pearce was one month away from giving up his dream when he got the break that changed his life. Catz N Dogz signed his track Entrance Song to Pets Recordings, which gave him the springboard he’d been chasing for as long as he could remember. Not long after he was DJing across the globe, releasing music on respected record labels plus consecutive appearances among RA’s top 20 DJs of the year. The #ORIGINS film below shows what happened before that, check it out below:
As part of the House of SONOS – the hub of the #ORIGINS series – the 4 unique films are accompanied by an eclectic and exclusive playlist created by each of the artists. Aptly named Eats Everything of course got to curate the Kitchen playlist loaded with a soulful selection of house and funk that sounds as good in the kitchen as it does on a dance floor. Listen to the playlist and discover #ORIGINS films over in the House of SONOS.
