New Music Worldwide is a weekly mix series hosted by Thris Tian.
This week’s New Music Worldwide comes from Youandewan.
Born in Scotland, raised in Yorkshire and living in Berlin since 2013, Ewan Smith’s productions blend influences from across the electronic spectrum.
A penchant for deeper shades of introspection works in tandem with a knack for kinetic and club-focused grooves – ably demonstrated by his releases on labels like Voyage, Cabinet, Secretsundaze, Aus Music (home to his 2016 debut long-player There Is No Right Time) and his own The Brane imprint.
Acclaimed DJ sets at clubbing institutions such as Fabric, Panorama Bar and DC10 have seen Ewan mature into a skilled and versatile selector – with a record bag that collects the best bits of vintage UK tech house, acid-laced cruisers and deeper strains of golden-era house and techno.
For his NMW mix, Youandewan examines these diverse styles with his usual ear for trippy, cerebral moods and driving rhythms – all delivered with the finesse of a seasoned jock.
