London’s illustrious party promoter, Eat Your Own Ears, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month with the launch of a brand new record label.

Eat Your Own Ears Recordings will bring in the first release later in the year with a compilation from some of dance music’s biggest names, including Four Tet, Floating Points, Caribou, Metronomy, and Mount Kimbie.

Set up alongside Virgin’s music label, the new imprint comes 20 years after the party promoters first launched their iconic nights at Brick Lane’s 93 East.

“After a chance meeting with an artist manager friend while running along the canal in Hackney Marshes, I was introduced to the legendary Jim Chancellor, MD of Virgin Music Label and also Fiction Records, after a fair few lockdown zooms, Eat Your Own Ears Recordings was born,” said Eat Your Own Ears founder Tom Baker.

Tom also added that the forthcoming compilation album will include both unreleased and exclusive tracks from a long list of artists: “it will be a mix of exclusive new tracks, unreleased tracks, and tracks from artists on the EYOE roster past, present, and future.”

EYOE Recordings’ launches next week with their first signing, BLOODMOON. With an impressive set of names behind some of the promoter’s parties, such as The xx, Arca, and Obongjayar, EYOE could be underway for some more big-name signings.

Lucy Pitkethly, EYOE new label manager, said on the project: “Discovering new music has always been a big passion of mine, whether it’s brand new acts or forgotten gems, so I’m really looking forward to working with Tom to release some exciting music.”
