Ewan Pearson
Small Change
Soma Records


Following his 1997 debut album Latitude, Ewan Pearson, aka Maas, has been keeping more than busy with remix work, and Soma records has put together Small Change, a collection of these remixes. Being unfamiliar with Pearson’s work, Small Change was a remarkable introduction to his talent of transforming any track, regardless of its genre. Whether it’s the tech-house stompers like Leftfields "Dub Gussett" or the chilled Lounge tempos of Christian Zimmerman’s "Diary of a Lost Girl", Pearson’s remix work covers a wide spectrum of sound.

Pearson also gives his treatment to the Aaron Carl classic "Crucified" and takes "Love Beat" by Yoshinori Sunahara into airy summertime territory with hip-hop breaks and pop infused melodies. Small Changes was also refreshing in that Pearson decided not to stick with strictly instrumental tracks and has remixed a good amount of vocal ones as well. "Say Goodbye to Christopher:" by Jeb Loy Nichols is a soul flavored Disco version fully loaded with 70’s strings and wah guitar, while Nova Nova’s "Bewildered" is a down-tempo gem with moody vocals similar to that of Lamb. Small Changes is a great chance to check out the work of a number of artists and to see what Ewan Pearson makes of it. With more remix work and a new album due next year, Ewan Pearson is name you’ll be hearing a lot more of in the near future.
