My first feature of Ian Ewing dates all the way back to 2015, roughly around the time I started to transition in the the beat scene (if I can generalize it as such). It's been a long journey and I've always had short, but funny interactions with the hummus-loving US producer. One thing I've noticed - he's grinding extremely hard and he is super consistent when it come to releasing great music. Another think I appreciate about him is the collaboration and sound diversity. Expect anything from trappy, r&b-inspired sounds to... super zen, near-downtempo songs which would make you feel lighter than a feather.
The Best Of mix series aims to showcase our favourite artists and is a homage to their art.
I hope you enjoy the hour-long mix, I must say I'm extremely happy how this turned out, took me a few weeks of planning, but I think the flow is... smooth and would allow you to enter a really warm comfort zone... and just feel happy. Thanks, Ian!
