INPUT | FIXED Presents: Ewan Pearson, JDH & Dave P

Ewan Pearson

Ewan Pearson is one of the most respected producers and in demand remixers in the UK at the moment.

Kidderminster-born Ewan Pearson has been making records since 1996. Following two singles for Lee Fisher's Birmingham indie Bosting, ("Motorcade" as Villa America and Dirtbox‚ "The Reason") Ewan's love of house and techno saw him hook up with one of his favourite labels Soma, for his first critically-acclaimed Maas EP. By then Ewan had moved to London to take a Master's degree in philosophy and cultural studies. When this was completed it was back to music - a second EP (including the deep techno fave "Juan Is The Teacher"), followed by an album, "Latitude", which yielded two more singles, the downbeat lushness of "Look At Me Now, Falling" (which featured two mixes from France's i:cube) and "Another Saturday Night" - a piece of disco house with inspired remixes from Swag and Nail.

Following the release of "Latitude" Ewan took Maas out as a live act. With over forty club and festival gigs around the UK and Europe he played at nights such as Slam, Bugged Out, The End, Laurent Garnier's legendary 'Wake Up' at Paris' Rex Club, and Berlin's Tresor. He has also played at the Sonar, Benecassim and Roskilde festivals.

After returning to college in 1997 for an abortive first year of a PhD (including a semester as a lecturer in popular music at the University of East London) Ewan divided his time between gigs, remixing and co-writing a book on dance music. "Discographies" was written with Jeremy Gilbert for academic press with Routledge and published in July 1999. Although he released no new material on Soma in the next two years, a low-key downbeat release as World of Apples for Ideal's Giant 45 label became something of a cult success. Tracks such as "Travis" and "Fifteen Months" from the Chroma EP were still being played two years after its release, and his World of Apples mix of Christian Zimmerman's "Diary of a Lost Girl" (also on Giant 45) was lauded by the likes of Phil Mison and Mixmaster Morris as 'a modern chill-out classic'. The second World of Apples EP "The Days Are Just Packed" was released to further acclaim in June 2000.
