Ewan's long been regarded as one of the more creative artists in progressive house. His long history in the genre has seen him amass a huge discography and he's added some of his finest work to it here. Beginning with the title track 'Silence', Ewan showcases his quirky, dance floor friendly style with a production that sits somewhere nicely between progressive and tech house. A smooth rolling groove sits at the foundation while trippy motifs and dark tones surround the framework. Augmented with two breaks the production moves through a captivating narrative with fuzzed out stabs, distinctive drums and delicate hypnotics sealing its overall brilliance.
The second selection 'Swimming Arrows' comes in lighter and more melodic, sitting as a lovely complement to 'Silent'. Phasing atmospheres, playful drums and a unique cadence make it ideal for the dance floor, while a timely break adds just the right amount of tension. A stellar third act brings refinement to the groove with spacey effects and a luminous glow carrying it home. Lovely stuff from Ewan.
The release concludes with 'Grow Me' which comes in a bit deeper and more techno inspired. A stripped, punchy groove sits at the foundation as a dreamy storyboard begins to evolve above. Rhythmic hooks and poignant melodies stand out while quirky lines and bouncy rhythms make it great for a late night dance floor. Three diverse and inspired cuts from Ewan which make for a superb debut EP on Movement Recordings. Don't miss it.
