Ewan McVicar is the latest Scottish sensation to emerge from the country's rich history of electronic music.
Summer 2022 got off to an incredible start. How was your first Glastonbury?
And of course you were on Eats Everything’s History of Rave bill playing an Acid House set alongside the likes of Eats Everything, Skream and Fatboy Slim, what an experience that must have been, how did you find it?
How did you find your BBC Radio 1 residency, being able to do a variety of different shows from playing entirely unreleased songs all the way to living legends, that must have been pretty special?
And you’re from Ayr and extremely proud of it, how cool does it feel to be rebuilding the town’s nightlife and culture?
How much of an influence did growing up there have on your musical style and where you’re at now?
If you could curate a night in Ayr with a lineup of DJs from past and present, who would they be to build your dream lineup?
What kind of artists did you listen to growing up to get to the sound where you’re at now?
Obviously Scotland has a rich history of electronic DJs, I know you’re good mates with Chris MacFarlane aka Big Miz, but are there any emerging Scottish DJs that you think have big potential?
With “Tell Me Something Good” being a sample of Rufus and Chaka Khan’s classic track of the same name, and also remixing Joe Goddard’s “Gabriel”, how do you feel when taking such classic tracks and giving them a modern spin, is there quite a lot of pressure to do it justice, or do you just go for it?
With another big landmark having just happened, how excited were you to have just released your highly anticipated EP, ‘Heather Park’ on Technicolour (Ninja Tune)?
With the year already being pretty massive for Ewan McVicar, what can we expect from you in the second half of 2022?
