Justin Martin and Eats Everything share a few common traits: they're both bass music innovators, familiar members of the Dirtybird clan, and always ready to bring a smile behind the decks. Last year saw their first of hopefully many co-productions with the Feather Fight EP, followed by the delightfully weird single "The Gettup". While rumors of a full-length collaboration album still loom, this week sees another two-track release from the San Francisco-Bristol duo.
Hello Mr. Jello is the kind of silly EP title you'd expect from these two, but the music is nothing to joke at. "Steven Jello" has been a mysterious Dirtybird ID for months, with it's wonky growls gracing the BPM Festival and label boss Claude VonStroke's Holy Ship!!! main stage set back in January. The B-side "Kong" flexes a little more Eats Everything production, with a steady yet spacey bassline occasionally interrupted by monstrous airplane engine samples. While we eagerly await news of a proper album, it's a welcomed reunion for two of house music's most fun-loving artists.
