Tell You What It Is
Eats Everything & Shermanology
Three Six Zero Recordings/ Ministry of Sound
out now
"This week's ENT is the first release from a brand new phase for the house and techno titan, the cuddliest man in Bristol, Eats Everything, as he teams up with the Dutch brother and sister duo, Shermanology. Eats has been feverishly in the studio during the last six months making new music and this is the first track he is going to unleash. It has already been the hottest record for Danny Howard. It's full of high energy and that gospel feeling, everything you come to expect from Eats Everything."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 32.26 here.
