Ewan Rill – Let It Go [Balkan Connection]

6 min read

Celebrating their 700th release in style, Balkan Connection welcomes Ewan Rill back to the label for a new EP. The Russian artist and Sever Records boss has been a mainstay of the progressive house underground since first appearing over a decade ago. Ewan's first ever release was in fact a contribution to Balkan Connection's 'Balkanians Vol. 11' collection, which was released in July of 2011. Now just over ten years later he stands as one of the genre’s most prolific artists, with a discography of more than 1250 credits and appearances on esteemed imprints such as Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat Music and Nick Warren’s The Soundgarden. With 122 release credits for Balkan Connection, Ewan now returns to the label with a four track showcase entitled 'Let it Go' to commemorate their 700th release.

As one of the more versatile producers out there Ewan covers a lot of bases across the four tracks, beginning with the laid back, low slung sounds of 'Age'. Deep, progressive and a touch organic this 117 BPM chugger is both dynamic and heady. From it's full muscular groove to a band of devilish electronics it's immediately striking and Ewan goes one step further with a tantalizing arp-led break which catapults the track to an emotive, key changing finale. Moving forward, 'Observe' picks up the tempo with another character rich groove that carries some serious weight. The sinister nature of the bass line is nicely offset with light chord stabs and timely effects, before the journey makes a more emotive turn with quirky sonics and feel good chord changes which ultimately highlight the final act.

The title piece 'Let It Go' arrives as the third selection and picks up the pace just a touch more. Ewan's groove shaping prowess shines here once again with a wonderfully contoured bass line that delightfully wobbles every step of the way. The subtle build of the track is quite entrancing as it works through tasteful effects and a hazy atmospheric resonance, before a more distinctive theme emerges across the break and spearheads a heady conclusion. Anchoring the EP are the hypnotic sounds of 'Middle Is The Point' which finds Ewan keeping the same energy as it's predecessor. Once again a heavy, shape-shifting groove lays at the foundation, as bright percussion, monstrous bass stabs and choir-like tones lead to a break that is equal parts mind bending and exhilarating. The unpredictability of the track is what makes it quite special and some might see it as the best cut on the release to be fair. Either way it puts a resounding cap on a monumental offering for Balkan Connection, one which sees Ewan Rill return to his first ever home with a sensational four track EP. Highly recommended.
