Six tracks of unreleased material from the Australian artist feature on the upcoming Lost Embers EP.
In time honoured tradition, Brixton Hill operation Going Good first revealed their intentions to sift through the archives of Perth musician Ewan Jansen last November by unveiling a 22-minute mix of “proper Ambient leanings for the quieter moments” by the Australian. For the uninitiated, Jansen was responsible for producing and releasing some Mariana Trench-deep house and techno on his Red Ember label over a four year period spanning the end of the ’90s. Intriguingly, the majority of these releases came on super limited lathe cut discs. After Red Ember closed, Jansen aligned with Detroit label Moods & Grooves who released his debut album Blueline Summer in 2005.
The unreleased archives of material Jansen recorded between 1999 to 2004 was opened up to Going Good, who have plucked out six highlights that feature on their first transmission of the year. Due out later this month, the appropriately named Lost Embers EP runs the gamut of Jansen’s style from “sparse, lo-fi hypnotic House, to downer Ambient to epic, true school Detroit laced Techno.” The excellent London-based designer/DJ Alex Egan continues his visual relationship with the label by contributing the below insert artwork based on “photos, flyers & personal ephemera” provided by Jansen.
Going Good will release the Lost Embers EP by Ewan Jansen in late February.
