You've heard the RA podcast, now see the real deal in the flesh. Ewan Pearson has lined up four dates in Australia in the new year, including NYE in Adelaide.
Ewan Pearson's dayjob is a remixer: He's rerubbed the likes of Royksopp, Goldfrapp, Moby, The Chemical Brothers. Depeche Mode, The Rapture and Alter Ego, and his remix of Freeform Five's ‘Perspex Sex’ was even voted best remix at 2002 German Dance Music Awards. At nights he’s a DJ – last year’s 'Sci-Fi Vol. 1' on Soma Records took electrohouse by the scruff of the neck and gave it a good shake, and recently he’s been DJing the big clubs, including a premium spot at this year’s Love Parade, where he was one of the lucky few to spin at the Victory Column (though like everyone, he only got through four records.)
And from the little known fact department – Pearson is also an author. He’s written 'Discographies: Dance Music, Culture and the Politics of Sound' with Jeremy Gilbert, which has been translated into Korean and Spanish.
