Eats Everything turns in a three-track EP of high energy jams, celebrating the short-lived but iconic "Hardbag" genre from the mid-90s, with all three featuring vocalist Frankco Harris, a performer, and host from NYC.

Hardbag, a style of music championed by Tony De Vit, Jon Of The Pleased Wimmin, Burger Queen, The Sharp Boys and many many others, was the antithesis of "handbag" house which was popular in the cheesy clubs at the time. Super tough, super fun, largely queer-centric tongue in cheek music that was purely for the dancefloor and didn't take itself too seriously all the while being absolutely mint (to me anyway). These tracks are for the party, they are for inclusivity & they are not meant to be taken too seriously.

Kicking off with "Bobby And Ken", Harris' vocals float atop a punchy instrumental, incorporating shuffling, garage-esque drums, squelchy basslines, and off-kilter FX. "Coming For You" is a high-energy affair, bringing pounding percussion, bouncy low-end, and high-pitched leads to the table, before "Wallop (Better Than The Rest)" brings the EP to a close with rave stabs, grinding build-ups, and cheeky vocal hooks.

With an accomplished career spanning productions and remixes on PETS, Dirtybird, Desolat, Intec, two of his own labels in Edible and EI8HT, as well as regular appearances at the likes of Glastonbury, Elrow, Warehouse Project, and Printworks, Eats Everything is one of dance music's most established and respected acts.
