Irish techno DJ and producer Sunil Sharpe launched his Earwiggle label in 2011 and has just announced that he will be compiling six EPs, the ‘Eel Behaviour’ series. There will be 24 artists featured across the six releases, including contributions from I Hate Models, Delta Funktionen, Mary Velo, Imogen, Giant Swan and many others.
Each 12-inch release is named after a type of eel (‘Conger’, ‘Moray’, ‘Sniper’, ‘Sawtooth’, ‘Onejaw’ and ‘Bobtail’) and will feature a plethora of genres, such as electro, acid and industrial, plus “long-lost hardtrance from 1994,” according to the official announcement. All artwork will be by Adult Art Club‘s Jonny Costello, with release dates scheduled from October 26 through December 7.
