Good time house producer Eats Everything has been left with a bitter taste in the mouth after having a stash of kit stolen at DJ Mag Best Of British awards.
The night should have been a triumphant one for the Bristolian, who took away the Best DJ title at the ceremony. Not so, unfortunately. In the moments before his headline set at London’s Cable, the producer had three memory sticks and a pair of headphones stolen from the DJ booth. According to the Eats Everyhting’s Twitter, he has had “years worth of solid work stolen, 100s of records that only I have”. Richy Ahmed subsequently had to fill in for the producer.
Speaking to Mixmag, the DJ said: “Basically I am not bothered about the headphones or the USB sticks at all, it’s just the music being in the hands of some oik basically. I have it all backed up, everything is replaceable but it meant coming home last night and loading everything onto a hard drive which took two hours then I had to be up at 8am to fly to Geneva and didn’t get it backed up in time so now have hardly any music for a tour of Switzerland.”
Anyone with any info is asked to ping an email over to his management. Other winners at the awards were Julio Bashmore, who took away the Best Single award for ‘Au Seve’, and Disclosure, who got props for their ubiquitous remix of Jessie Ware’s ‘Running.’
