IAN BLEVINS – THE ROAD TO CARRER D’ENMIG EP FEATURING SOULADE – VITALIK RECORDINGS

It seems my EP on Vitalik Recordings has sneaked its way on to Beatport yesterday and is now available to purchase. It comes woth two very solid remixes from Soulade aka Ryan O Gorman Music.

Most of the tracks were made whilst sweating away in the living room of the apartment I shared with Andrew Livesey throughout the last 5 of my summer seasons in Ibiza hence the title of the EP. The other was made still with that vibe very much in mind but trying to forget I get a year older the next day

We’ve had a lot of really good feedback from Reboot Denney Danny Howell catz n dogz Shadow Child DJ Felix Dickinson Tooli Carly Foxx DEMI Lars Behrenroth Steve Mac Psychemagik Jacques Renault Konkret Cutz Luca Cazal Chris Fortier Jesse Perez Lovefingers Brett Johnson Neil Diablo Mutant Disco Radio Show Digitaria Tom Budden Baikal Severino DJ Eli & Fur Mouj King Unique Dubfire John Digweed Anthony Pappa jef k Droog Ben Pearce NT89 Karlos Sense and lots more names. Thank you all!

Cheers to Jamie and all at Hype also for the promo. And of course to Mr Ryan O Gorman for having faith in the music enough to put it out there.

NY*AK ‘DOLLAR EP’ TECHNICOLOUR

It seems Ny*ak debut EP on Ninja Tune off shoot Technicolour, is now in the shops. Well I’ve seen it in Juno Records and Phonica Records so far.
I’m quite proud to see our track ‘Xager‘ kicking off the EP and the reactions to it has been ace. Fans of it so far count Official Mr Scruff Laurent Garnier Breach Leon Vynehall to name a couple.
Moxie also featured ‘Xager’ in her Truants mix as well.
The EP also features Mark Hand & Misumami who feature on ‘Shadow’ all in all to make a cracking record. It looks, sounds and what I can only speculate, smells and tastes lovely as well.

“He teams up with ESP Institute’s Ian Blevins for a smooth deep house groove on “Xager”. It’s dusty and emotive, we’re loving that classic bleep bassline and hypnotising analogue pads.”

Thanks to Ransom Note as well who premiered the track

IAN BLEVINS – RESUME/ POOR OLD HEAD – ESP INSTITUTE

After a great reaction to my last EP, the second Ep for ESP Institute is now in the shops at such as Juno and Phonica. It was also a staff pick over at Piccadilly Records

‘Resume’ was made not long after I made ‘Hannibal’ so I was sort of in the same headspace and mood when I created it. ‘Poor Old Head’ was made on a Sunday afternoon after a particularly heavy night. It’s not something I do very often as a hangover usually ends up with me eating and being glued to the TV. i remember it being a fairly nice day and with the window open and sun shining it helped my ‘poor old head’ to make this. Some initial feedback from the EP tells me that Laurent Garnier is a fan, and if thats not a good enough reason to go out and grab the record I don’t know what is.

Massive thanks again goes To Andrew at ESP Institute for letting me release music on such a great label. Truly grateful.
