Ewan Pearson was a steadfast remixer during the time I was knee deep in house vinyl. I’ve never actually checked, but I’d love to know how many of his remixes I inadvertently own from being on the flip side of so many of my favourite tracks from the early 2000’s. Ladytron, Chemical Brothers, Playgroup, Depeche Mode and that catchy Seelenluft tune, I remember vividly, Ewan playing an absolutely storming house and techno set following one of Justice’s first big performances at Benicassim a few years ago. It’s great to hear a man of influence come full circle, drop his work tools and put together a mix which feature’s absolutely nothing you’d normally associate him with.
‘Peal’ would sit nicely amongst the classic ‘Back To Mine’ series to be honest and is named so due to it being ‘”full of bells and even when there aren’t many, the music seems to chime like bells do”. A mixed bag of laid back tracks ranging from ambient, dub and minimal to electronica and instrumental guitar and vocal tracks. As Ewan states, it’s stuff he likes to listen when not at work; it’s refreshing and full of many hidden gems I haven’t the foggiest about.
