Launched back in 2019, the EI8HT imprint saw the collaboration between long-time friends and DJ partners, Eats Everything and Andres Campo, with a remit to push forward thinking techno music that transcends through soulful and emotive electronics, to high energy groove-laden club tracks.
Nearly three years on, and the label continues to stick to its ethos, and via a steady stream of well received releases, have built up a global reputation for quality tunes, and a burgeoning roster of artists. Distinguished producers such as Truncate, Black Girl / White Girl, Drumcomplex, Gaston Zani and Ackermann & Michael Klein have all delivered pure bangers for EI8HT, alongside releases from the head honchos Eats Everything and Andres Campo themselves.
A new subsidiary label for 2022 is the latest string to the duo’s bow, and the inaugural release on the EI8HT+ label comes in the form of an epic Andres Campo remix of Better Lost Than Stupid’s ‘Inside’. The original mix, by the electronic supergroup made up of Davide Squillace, Matthias Tanzmann and Martin Buttrich, came out on the Skint Records released ‘Wild Slide’ album in 2019.
The new imprint has been set up for special projects, remix ventures and unique collaborations. Andres Campo explains that “EI8HT+ is a door, a necessary door, where Dan AKA Eats Everything, and I, can give way to other musical projects and concerns that are a bit far from EI8HT main vibe, a place with no tags, but a door to creativity”. Dan Pearce adds that “EI8HT+ was created by Andres and myself to access a wider scope of the music we are into and make, be that remixes of tracks we love, remakes of old tracks or stuff that is too out there for the EI8HT sound. Expect anything and everything, except what you’d expect”
‘Inside’ (Andres Campo Remix) by Better Lost Than Stupid is released on EI8HT+ from 4th March 2022.
