Various Artists Ewan Pearson Sc.Fi.Hi.Fi. Vol. 1
- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: Soma
Leave it to Ewan Pearson to program a mix featuring a track that proclaims "I don't want to have sex with you" and make it drop sexy. While this number by Soldout is a heavy, fuzzed-out highlight of this Ableton-enabled mix, it's hard to find anything that doesn't live up to its deliciously high standard of raw electro house. From Riton's disco drums re-rub of Brazilian Girls to Pearson's own chugging and grinding version for Feist, the Scottish producer takes the path less played, sequencing an unpredictable and devastating set that not only features killer tracks but damn fine DJing–even if he did use a computer.
